The Golden Age of Jewish Achievement

Dear Editor,

I hope you’re doing well. I’m working with Steven L. Pease on his book, The Golden Age of Jewish Achievement. After looking through your blog, I’d like to offer you a free review copy of Steve’s book. I’ve included some info on the book, as well as on the author, in case you’re interested.

America has been blessed with many waves of immigrants from all over the world, whose contributions have made our nation the most successful in history. According to Steven Peace, succeeding Jewish immigrants’ values have helped build American industries and culture, and our way of life.

But why are Jews disproportionately high achievers? The Golden Age of Jewish Achievement is a tome of Jewish leadership, innovation and hard work over the last 200 years that makes a case that the answer to this question has to do with culture.  In his book, Pease explains how the evolution of Judaism, coupled with a tortured 2,000-year history, has shaped a unique combination of cultural values, which have made Jews into the world’s most successful tribe of smart and successful people.

A turnaround CEO, venture capitalist, and community activist, Steve Pease has traveled much of the world while heading up public and private companies as well as not-for-profit organizations. Born and raised Presbyterian in Spokane, Washington, he is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Washington with a master’s degree from Harvard Business School. He is co-chair of the U.S. Russia Foundation for Economic Advancement and the Rule of Law and active in community affairs in the small wine-country town of Sonoma, California, where he lives with his wife, Joyce.

Riposte Against Zionism: Go Tell it to the People

Riposte Against Zionism: Go Tell it to the People
Dr. Alan Sabrosky Salem-News.com

Perhaps the first thing we need to do is to get organized. We need to map out all of the various networks and distribution lists in our movement.
Palestinian state
The creation of a Palestinian state is the goal of many.

(JACKSON, Miss.) – Archimedes once said, “Give me a place to stand and I will move the world.” In the preceding articles in this series (listed below above my bio), I have developed the basic theses of my analysis that define the place we stand now, and where we must stand if we wish to alter the world Zionism has contrived for us. One is that we must focus our attention on the edifice of Zionist influence and control in the US, and not be mesmerized by events in and around Palestine. Another is that our efforts to date, with the partial exception of the BDS (Boycott, Disinvestment and Sanctions) campaign, have been ineffectual at best and counterproductive at worst. And the third, most critical point is that the gate to containing Zionism is in the US; the lock to the gate is in the heartland of the US and not Washington; and the key to that lock is the Israeli orchestration of 9/11 and its spin-off wars.

Examining the Strategic Battlefield

So let us see how things stand. “It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good,” the proverb goes, and those of us committed to undoing the great damage Zionism has done so many people and Israel’s leverage over the American government should view the collapse of the Second Flotilla in recent days in that light. The basic concept wasn’t all that bad, but somewhere on the way from its inception to the Eastern Mediterranean, it lost both strategic focus and tactical coherence, becoming an exercise in futility that made the ill-starred medieval “Children’s Crusade” seem like a well-thought-out operation.

I’m not going to indulge here in a blow-by-blow critique of the Second Flotilla. But its collapse, and the international reaction to it, ought to be a wake-up call to everyone. Not a single government of a single country was willing to provide any protection whatsoever to its citizens on the flotilla, although a handful called on Israel to refrain from intercepting it. The one country that had been extremely supportive in the past – Turkey – asked the flotilla’s organizers to delay their departure because of the instable conditions throughout the region. But said organizers refused, thus insulting and alienating their only real friend in the area – and ended up in Greece and unable to sail in any event, Lenin’s classic “infantile disorder” come to roost, indeed.

This comes on top of a classic, and classically destructive, vote on the UN Security Council a few months before. The measure would have condemned the continued expansion of Jewish settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, itself openly in violation of other UN Resolutions. The resolution would only condemn, of course: no sanctions, no embargoes, just verbiage. But even that was too much for the US, which once again vetoed a resolution critical of Israel that was supported by all 14 other members, demonstrating conclusively that Israel’s ownership and management of the single remaining 800-pound gorilla in the global sandbox pays great dividends to it.

Between the two, of course, was Netanyahu’s triumph in Washington – 29 standing ovations plus some “spontaneous” cheering, evidence that members of both houses of the US Congress at least have the dubious virtue of knowing how to stay bought, whatever their personal views. There was also for Netanyahu a blank checkbook from Obama, to be filled in and used virtually at will, and continuous reaffirmations of America’s unbreakable bond with Israel. And there was more repetition of the need for direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians as a path of sorts to a peace of sorts – doubtless reflecting a conviction that a lie repeated often enough becomes a truth of sorts to those who hear and know nothing different.

A Strategy for Response: General Precepts

There are a number of steps that need to be taken. As I have indicated before, I am a strategy and plans person, not an organizer. So I will outline here what needs to be done, and let those with good organizational skills translate concept into action, beginning with an overview of certain principles that need to be kept in mind. I’m looking principally at the US situation, because of its centrality to the outcome of this situation, although I think several of the points could be adapted anywhere.

First, we need to remember that the American people do not care greatly about a distant issue like the Palestinians, or an abstraction (however significant) like Zionist domination of the mainstream media (MSM). They do care about things that hurt them, or make them afraid, or enrage them. The 9/11 tragedy is the Zionist’s “Achilles Heel,” and we need to keep shooting verbal and written arrows at it. So every single article, speech or interview, if at all possible, needs to include at least a passing reference to 9/11 somewhere in the body of the text. This is what the Zionist crews (such as AIPAC and the ADL) and Israeli officials do with the whole Holocaust/Anti-Semitism issue, and giving it back to them is important. Start now.

Second, don’t waste time calling for a Congressional investigation or a new official commission on 9/11, when anything the Israeli-dominated Congress and Executive branch would do will exonerate Israel. Don’t go to Congressional offices in Washington — this is their power base and bastion of strength. Don’t keep trying to get the mainstream media to cover these events when it will not do or allow anything critical of Israel to surface in any detail for any significant length of time. Don’t protest anything unless you can assemble at least a thousand people — nothing looks more futile than a handful of protesters with hand-lettered signs few can see and no one bothers to read. Don’t sporadically send letters or emails to the Secretary of State or the President, or encourage others to do so, no matter what the issue. As things stand, none of that will succeed, and failure based on futility is not the path to gaining public support, much less political victory.

Third, no matter what one does, treat all national offices of all organizations in and around Washington, DC and other key metropolitan areas as part of the problem, or at the very least not part of a solution. Consider them all compromised by assorted PACs, and in this context, by AIPAC and company. Think instead of state, and especially local, branches and chapters of any and all organizations, and of the local media, especially in smaller cities and towns and in areas where the Jewish population is relatively small, and thus less influential than in areas like Chicago or New York City. That is where we can have our greatest impact, and like innumerable small streams and rivulets come together into a raging river of protest and anger.

Creating a Supporting Geopolitical Environment

To date, the Zionists and their Christian Zionist allies in America have had most of the fight the way they want it. They have won the campaign for control of the the mainstream media, and more than that, of many publishing houses and research institutes that do most of the regional and issue-specific work in national security affairs. They have won control of the Congress (both houses, both parties) and have a commanding lead in public opinion, but these are both very soft, the former generally driven by money and intimidation, and the latter principally by indifference and misinformation. Resistance to their efforts has been sporadic and largely unsuccessful, and more to the point, mostly reactive to steps they have taken or successes they have achieved. Regaining the strategic initiative, or at least beginning to be in competition with them, is critical.

Learn more about BDS, take part.

Perhaps the first thing we need to do is to get organized. We need to map out all of the various networks and distribution lists in our movement. There are an awful lot of them, but there is no organization or coordination (akin to the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations), so the Zionists get tons of disconnected jabs but no series of solid “haymakers,” much less a knockout. Organization and coordination make the difference, especially in an uphill fight against these odds. It doesn’t need to have offices and staff – thanks to our technology these days, we can set up a virtual organization to collaborate on formalizing a network that goes well beyond simply exchanging posts or sharing mailing lists. That way when something public needs to be addressed, we have a chance of making some coordinated waves that may at least rock the Zionist boat a bit, and at some point may well capsize it.

Second, and in support of the first effort, there needs to be at least two types of online repositories of downloaded material to share among ourselves and with others in this network. I am putting one together of multimedia (mostly MP4), maps and graphics, plus some key documents, and will be uploading the material to a new blog I have created; it’ll be generally available within a week. I have also sent distribution copies of the material to several others, and they’ll post news of its availability on their websites soon. Anyone can download it to their computer and/or upload it to their website, but since these can be hacked and the material scrubbed, it needs to be retained in hard copy off the computer so it can be restored if necessary. A second repository should be of hard copy (files or printed material), NOT just links (for the same reason as above, they can be bgroken) of good articles, analyses, fact sheets, etc. – I’ll leave that to others.

Third, there needs to be at least an informal collection of lawyers, none of them Arab-American or from any Islamic country, assembled to file an endless stream of lawsuits against organizations like AIPAC, the ADL, and Campus Watch, plus Israel’s individual apologists, for (at a minimum) defamation of character. (I’ll leave it to people with a legal education to ascertain how the litigation should best be formulated and pursued.) If they call anyone an anti-Semite, and their name (or their organization’s name) is on it, sue them, with the proviso that the proceeds go to a Palestinian charity.

Lawsuits are remarkably easy to file in the US, and the costs are minimal as long as legal fees are not driving them. This could easily and quickly put people like Abe Foxman, Alan Dershowitz and their cohorts in the lovely position of responding to scores of lawsuits in as many jurisdictions as possible. And remember – no out-of-court settlements, bring each and every case to trial, make it a jury trial where the laws of a state permit that, and expose both their actions and their affiliation in great detail. Public disclosure is the one very deadly “third rail” to the overall Zionist enterprise, and the one thing they cannot tolerate. Start as soon as even a handful of willing attorneys can be organized into (dare I say it?) a “legal collective.”

Finally, we need an electronic a “how-to” info packet on the way to hit politicians at the grass roots, to be in place no later than January 2012, as 2012 is an election year here and material needs to be circulated in newspapers and on the radio and TV (especially large newspaper ads) in every Congressional district and states with politically vulnerable Senators (or vacated Senate seats). These are the people to hammer in their local Town Hall meetings, even if they are Jewish or committed Christian Zionists: they may not change their positions in the slightest, but some of their constituents and some of the local media will hear very unusual things, and may themselves begin to question what they have been told – especially on 9/11.

Also understand that it would be best to have veterans do this. The embedded video gives an excellent illustration of how the process works, even though it does not deal with our issues. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1cktxMWLUuQ The man in the video trashing that Congressman began by stating he was a “Marine vet,” and he got loud applause from the audience. This made it very difficult for the politician to ignore him or dismiss him, without enraging the audience. You’ll also note that the veteran’s message and confrontational style of delivery also generated a lot of applause, and that the Congressman came across very badly. This isn’t surprising: few of them in either party are able to engage in open, unscripted debate. Even fewer have an understanding of most issues, and none dares look to the side and call on a staffer for support without giving a raft of challengers an open political hunting license on his or her scalp. Just watch them on C-SPAN and you’ll appreciate just how vulnerable they are to this tactic.

Go in particular for the incumbents in their open forums, do everything possible to cost them their seats regardless of who the challenger is. Any successes will be noted by everyone in the Congress, to whom the only thing at least as important as money is the retention of their seats and the perks that come with them. Make it public, in home district/state “town meetings” with the mostly independent local media and especially the voters, not one in 1,000 (or it may be 10,000) of whom have ever heard, seen or read anything other than the Zionist line, about the Middle East generally and 9/11 in particular. Put it in their faces. Humiliate the politicians, keep them from turning questions to their staff members, demand that THEY answer personally, and do so while informing the voters and local media present.

Convoys With a Difference

The concept of land convoys and boats or flotillas to carry the struggle to the Zionists hasn’t been all bad. It was just misdirected in terms of location and message: wrong places, wrong targets. Defining the obstacle to peace as Washington and marching in Gaza or sending boats there ignores the schwerpunkt, or main target in strategic terms. Since the problem is the US government, i.e. Washington DC, then Washington (and US embassies abroad, for internationals) should be the main targets of these actions. All else is secondary, distractions, or public-relations fluff.

What is needed is a series of small (one or two vehicle) convoys in the US, something like the “Moving Vietnam Wall” memorial, starting on the West Coast and in Florida and New England, and proceeding toward Washington DC. The vehicles would stop at American Legion, VFW or Navy League posts (or those of other similar organizations) across the country that had been contacted in advance, whose leadership (and if possible membership) had seen some key videos on 9/11 and perhaps a slideshow of the problem along the lines of one I put together, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY-S1SX_uQs or something comparable anyone else might choose to use – there are many possibilities. And they’d show them on the private facilities of those posts, open to the public with announcements and ads for a week or so before. Start whenever and make as many short trips as possible, but plan for all to converge on Washington DC on Memorial Day 2012, and make it truly memorable.

This can be done in many ways. What needs to be understood is that the focus must be on 9/11 and its consequences, and not on the Palestinians, although reference can be made to their plight to demonstrate just what Israel does with and because of our support and protection. Presenters need to keep on message and not get distracted into peripheral issues. They need to make it clear that the official US government interpretation of 9/11 is a lie, and the wars it spawned are therefore also based on lies. And if that isn’t enough to get their attention, just remind everyone that anytime they try and fly, and get to walk through scanners with their shoes in their hand or go through full body scanners, and know that for the extent of governmental surveillance that we all labor under now, they have the architects of 9/11 to thank for their discomfort, loss or privacy and loss of freedom.

Show the film of WTC-7 going down, with signs in large print stating that no one supposedly in the planes could have wired the WTC towers for a controlled demolition, or even piloted the aircraft. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMdLVw3AsV4 Show the video with, among other things, both audio-visual evidence of secondary explosions at the base of the Twin Towers, and media reports thereof on 9/11 that disappeared within days from the public discussion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J4o3Tbf5kg Show slides or signs with information of the different vans, and the one with the Israelis laughing and celebrating as they filmed the burning buildings. Describe how all of the Israelis were later released at the instigation of Israeli and US officials, many with dual US-Israeli passports. And then, almost as an afterthought, show this slideshow or something like it, show pictures of Gaza under attack, especially the police cadets and the children. Show the pictures of Israeli girls inscribing shells and Jewish settlers mocking a single Palestinian woman. Show them. Words won’t be needed, but explain when questions are asked — and they will be asked.

This is the key to everything. Let the Americans in this picture, and the many like them, fully Your browser may not support display of this image. understand what Israel has done, the losses America has suffered as a consequence, and what we have done to others on Israel’s behalf. By this point, it should not be difficult to argue conclusively and persuasively that 9/11 was a tragedy in many ways, but the bottom line is that we have been killing the wrong people for doing it, taken 70,000 US casualties (killed & wounded) in the process, and destroyed countless lives in other countries as well. The Zionist Conspiracy that created this tragedy must go.

Where to Start the Program

The legitimacy and effectiveness of the veteran displayed in that earlier video confronting a Congressman bereft of staff, lobbyists and secretaries, combined with the importance of concentrating our efforts in smaller localities and in the home offices of politicians, should point us to the need to build our directed political activity on individual veterans and the local posts and communities of as many veterans’ organizations as possible. “Code Pink” activists, environmentalists, and perennial radical or so-called “activist” groups will fall flat here politically – and we want and need to win.

I’ve thought long and hard about how and where to start this process. It isn’t necessary to begin with a mass movement, although once this gets moving, I expect the numbers to grow in relatively short order. But it also would not be a good idea to simply reside blind faith in individuals picking up this particular torch and carrying it hither and yon, from post to post, local paper to state legislator, and so forth.

And then it occurred to me that there is an organization in place that is not so large that it would be unmanageable, but with enough members to get things started in a number of areas simultaneously, and which has the motivation and sense of commitment to do this properly, if they chose to do it (I have not asked yet….). That is the USS Liberty Veterans Association, comprised of survivors of the US Navy ship that Israel attacked in 1967 with a loss of over 200 sailors and Marines killed or wounded, and which was abandoned to its fate by the US Navy at the direct orders of then-Defense Secretary McNamara and President Johnson to shield Israel from retribution.

This is the outfit to get things moving at the beginning. No appeals to a Congress that won’t listen, no letters to a mainstream media that won’t care, no protests in the streets that are ignored by that media. But direct approaches to the veterans organizations (VFW, Navy League, etc.) to which they personally belong, letters to weekly newspapers in their home counties that collectively reach a large number of people, appeals to state legislators in their own districts, who are far more likely to be attentive than politicians for whom national monies and Washington are their power base. Some of the survivors also have radio programs, and these, too, can help spread the word and get this process moving.

And Once There is a New Consensus

Responding to those who have orchestrated 9/11 and all that ensued is going to be difficult. If I were a Palestinian or an Iranian, I would treat the Israelis and the neo-cons in the US as they have treated me. A neo-conservative writer named Jennifer Rubin, for instance, advocated in print the killing of Iranian civilian scientists – “Think of it as targeted sanctions,” she opined. Others – 9/11 aside – openly fabricated a basis for war in Iraq and are trying to foment a new war with Iran, knowing hundreds of thousands of people would be killed or have their lives shattered. And they did it without a qualm because it was, after all, for Israel, and besides, they were confident could get away with it. It would be interesting to see how these neo-cons liked being on the receiving end themselves of those “targeted sanctions” – recalling a remark a few years ago that the defining characteristics of the neo-cons were hypocrisy and cowardice, I doubt they’d like it much at all – even if they would deserve it.

But as an American, that course of action wouldn’t be needed. That is because in a sense, the neo-cons and their allies have done the rest of us a favor, because they have put in place the mechanisms we can use against them. With sufficient public outrage, especially among veterans, and the ensuing impact on at least the US House of Representatives (the US Senate will take a while longer), think how well what now exists could be applied to those who violate their oaths and spent American lives and resources in Israel’s interest – becoming little more than Israeli partisans or puppets, albeit nicely paid ones.

Arrests by Federal officers or the military, followed by transportation to Guantanamo Bay and subsequent interrogation would be just a start – so nice of Obama to have left that in business, after all. So many of these neo-cons and their affiliates were very sanguine about methods of interrogation such as waterboarding or the infamous Israeli technique known as “Palestinian Hanging” – it would be instructive to see if they remained so positive after a few weeks of having those methods applied to themselves.

And of course, as with those currently languishing in that exercise, the usual constitutional guarantees do not apply, and the military tribunals now in place could judge charges of high treason at least as easily, and probably more enthusiastically, than they have heard charges of terrorism and such to date. Nor would we need to look far for established mechanisms for the punishment of those found guilty: we have them in the Nuremberg Tribunals, and I would think that hanging or the firing squad would be more than appropriate for those who have betrayed their oaths of office, squandered American lives and treasure, and inflicted so much death, suffering and destruction on others – all in the name, spoken or not, of Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel, or “Greater Israel” as it exceeds current borders).

Doing More with Help from our Friends

It goes without saying, I hope, that nothing in the preceding proposal should be seen as proprietary or exclusive of any other individuals or groups, within the US or abroad. It is simply a way to begin the process in what seems to be to be a workable and manageable way, using a slideshow that summarizes the core elements of our case and some multimedia files that demonstrate unequivocally the bankruptcy of the official US Government case – and why it did, and continues to do, what it does.

Others within the US should feel entirely free to take, adapt, modify and/or replace any of this material to meet their own requirements. A partially or wholly different slideshow could be created – anyone wanting the slides I used as building-blocks or points of reference should email me directly, and I will send out what I have. The same for the multimedia files. There are many others out there on the internet, of course, and some of them may be more appropriate, depending on local circumstances – that should be an individual decision. Approaching state legislators and local chapters of any of these veterans’ organizations would be encouraged – even one more contact anywhere would help. This is one of those endeavors where individual initiative is at least as prized as directed group action.

No matter who or what picks up this ball and runs with it, there are certain things to keep firmly in mind. One is to hold to the core message, which is 9/11, although as I did, an introductory reference to the USS Liberty incident as an external validator is certainly appropriate. Supporting that message are details about the Zionist domination of the mainstream media and their leverage over the US government. References to Palestine, Israeli attacks on Gaza, and the character of Israeli society are fine, but not as the primary message: Americans need to know what has been done to them over the years, why, and at what cost – and especially why the US Government under any electable President will be no help at all to them.

Remember that after our first Declaration of Independence, it took seven years of fighting for that independence to become a reality. The smothering of American institutions by Zionists and (more recently) Christian Zionists has been evolving at least for decades, and it will take years to divest ourselves as a country and a society from the web of influence the Zionists have in place. How much time is open to question, but the meteoric rise of the so-called “Tea Party” movement is a very good indication of just how quickly an aroused American electorate can change things.

It is also very likely that an aroused body of American veterans, and perhaps more than a few active duty personnel as well, can change this situation as well – recall that the issue we are dealing with involves not only money, but also a great deal of blood and suffering, ours and our victims, and the safety of families, friends and country. None of this matters greatly to AIPAC and company, unless of course it involves Israel, but it will to those in America’s heartland, and if they become properly and accurately informed and enraged, then payback, as the saying goes, will be a bitch.

And the Wages of Betrayal Are….

I really believe in the US Marine Corps motto of Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful), and in Marine boot camp I was taught that meant fidelity to God, Country and Corps –the government was never mentioned then. Many in my generation felt the same way, and it goes without saying that few politicians anywhere, and virtually none in the Congress, have endeared themselves to uniformed Americans of any generation. Those in the government whose actions on behalf of Israel constitute treason ought to reflect on that fact, as should Israeli leaders – such as they are.

And I have a final message here for those sworn elected and appointed officials of the US Government who have betrayed their oaths in order to serve Israel, for those around the government who have facilitated this effort, and for Israel itself. You all have been discovered. Your treason, treachery and crimes are known. You may not believe it yet, but your political and strategic Judgment Day is finally appearing on the horizon, as surely as it came for Nineveh and Tyre in ancient times, for the infamous Third Reich in 1945, and for the Soviet Union two decades ago.

Beware. We are coming for you.

Transparent and Trustworthy Israel by Scott A. Hill — Antiwar.com

Do you honestly surmise that these “journalists” will be neutral, honest commentators with no affiliation to the interests of Israel ? Will they sympathize with the ongoing struggle of the Palestinian people

Transparent and Trustworthy Israel

Now that’s a laugh
by Scott A. Hill, July 01, 2011
Email This | Print This | Share This | Antiwar Forum

How good of Netanyahu to allow journalists to accompany Israeli forces when they intercept the international aid flotilla bound for Gaza in the next few days. This – apparently – is to ensure that “transparent and trustworthy coverage” is widely available to the viewing world. How absurd. Do you honestly surmise that these “journalists” will be neutral, honest commentators with no affiliation to the interests of Israel? Will they sympathize with the ongoing struggle of the Palestinian people? Of course not. They will merely provide a counter to the truth-telling anecdotes of the political activists attempting to provide aid to the suffering Gaza population.

Just days ago, Israeli authorities were threatening that any journalist accompanying the so-called “dangerous provocation” convoy would be banned from entering Israel for 10 years and denied the chance to use whatever footage they gain during the Gaza voyage. However, since these threats were made public, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has distanced himself from any such action stating that “there’s no way to stop the media in this day and age… it is better not to clash with them”. These latest events once again highlight the large propaganda machine at work in Israel.

Following Netanyahu’s comments regarding freedom of the press – or, at the very least, his skewed version of it – it was announced that Israeli media would join any intercepting fleet in order to enable neutral reporting. I guess – in his warped mind – the viewing public would value the opinions of brainwashed Israeli reporters over the tales of a multinational group of peaceful journalists. Then again, perhaps he has a point. After all, following last year’s flotilla raid, western media opted to exclusively show Israeli footage of the deadly attack on civilian activists by Israeli military forces. The event was reported uncritically by the BBC and other such news stations.

Moreover, US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton has claimed that this latest pro-Palestinian aid mission is “not necessary or useful” stating that Israelis have the “right to defend themselves”. Pardon me? Does she – for even a split second – perceive this aid mission as threatening? What possible harm could basic civilian goods and foodstuffs cause the people of Israel? Why is it that Mrs. Clinton – along with her feeble leader Mr. Obama – care so much about the “suffering” people of Libya yet continue to ignore the plight of the suffering masses in the Gaza Strip?

Western powers were quick to state that, with regards to their “intervention” in Libya, they were following strict UN procedures. How many times did we hear the words “UN” and “resolution” used as some kind of justification for their imperialistic rampage? Yet, when that very same organization describes events in Gaza as “illegal” and “unlawful”, they turn a blind eye. Interestingly, America’s government seems keen to point out laws when it suits it (i.e. Clinton’s “right to defend themselves” nonsense) yet ignore what many countries saw as a blatant “violation of international law” just over a year ago when nine peaceful activists were brutally murdered aboard the Mavi Marmara whilst attempting to distribute humanitarian aid.

The latest – frankly laughable – accusation being spread by senior Israeli officials is that there are “radical elements” within the peaceful flotilla wishing to “spill the blood of Israeli soldiers”. Proof? None whatsoever. On the contrary, the convoy describe themselves as “dedicated to peace” and merely wish to assist a tormented population. Only America is daft enough to believe such Zionist twaddle. In fact, only America will stand by Israel once they have successfully sabotaged this latest humanitarian mission.

The question is, why the contention? During World War II, British planes flew over Berlin – who were by no means considered an ally – and delivered aid parcels to help the suffering people of Germany. When aircraft aid was so widely accepted during warfare over 70 years ago why is flotilla aid condemned so much nowadays? Has humanity sunk to such low levels that we can no longer see beyond our own borders and help distressed populations elsewhere? Regrettably, these latest events have led me to believe that only a one-state solution is the realistic outcome of this incessant predicament.

With America’s failure to support the Palestinian cause and the West’s overall silence on the matter, when Palestine applies for statehood in September, it would not surprise me to find that many nations will bow to strong Israeli pressure and veto the proposal. History will once again prove that it is always the victim who must “compromise.” The famous expression “bullies never prosper” will once again be proven inaccurate and the Palestinian people shall remain oppressed. Silenced. Denied the right to freedom and peace.

When you view the latest flotilla assault on your television screens, please keep in mind the starving, beaten, tortured individuals of the Gaza Strip, for they will not be shown. Instead you will be treated to images of “clashes” and “comings together.” You will hear – before anyone else – the voice of an Israeli official claiming how they were “provoked” into “acting” – as opposed to attacking or murdering – and how Israel was at threat. You might be lucky enough to see some activists being escorted away in Israeli police vehicles. The cameras will be conveniently switched off before the interrogation begins. But silly me, how foolish. Israel is trustworthy. Transparency will of course be top of their agenda.

OBAMA ADMIN LISTS ISRAEL AS TERROR SPONSOR at DickMorris.com

OBAMA ADMIN LISTS ISRAEL AS TERROR SPONSOR. By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann.

By Dick Morris And Eileen McGann
06.30.2011

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) maintains a list of “specially designated countries” (SDCs) that “have shown a tendency to promote, produce or protect terrorist organizations or their members.” The folks from these nations get special scrutiny when they enter the U.S.

Here’s the list:

Afghanistan
West Bank
Algeria
Bahrain
Oman
Bangladesh
Pakistan
Philippines
Egypt
Qatar
Saudi Arabia
Indonesia
Somalia
Iran
Sudan
Iraq
Syria
Israel
And so forth.

Israel? Yes Israel is one of the thirty-six SDCs that “promote, produce, or protect” terrorists, according to the Obama Administration. With splendid equality, they manage to list the world’s biggest victim alongside the globe’s leading perpetrators of terrorism. Israelis coming into America get the same high level of scrutiny that Iranians do!

This information, which comes to us courtesy of the wonderful website www.ruthfullyyours.com, is as shocking as it is credible.

That Obama has tried to maintain that there is a moral equilibrium between Israel and the aggressive Arabs that surround it is well known. But to list Israel as a promoter, protector, or producer of terrorism is quite extraordinary.

Doubtless some politically correct soul at ICE or in the State Department felt that the U.S. needed to show impartiality in making up its list and include non-Muslim countries. What better rebuttal to those who would claim that the ICE is profiling Muslims than to say that Israel is also on the list?

But Israel’s inclusion on the list, to say nothing of the indignity inflicted on its citizens as they seek to enter the United States, is an insult and must be corrected at once!

International Jewish Terrorism: Gaza no end in sight to hardship and despair

Gaza: no end in sight to hardship and despair
20-05-2011 Interview
Mathilde De Riedmatten, deputy head of the ICRC’s sub-delegation in Gaza, talks about the situation in the coastal enclave and about how ordinary Gazans manage to carry on with their daily lives.
.How would you describe the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip today?
The ICRC is concerned about the fact that the 1.5 million people in the Strip are unable to live a normal and dignified life. Almost no one can leave the Gaza Strip, not even to go to the West Bank, where many Gazans have family or previously had work.

Health-care facilities are suffering from the restrictions imposed by Israel on the transfer of medical equipment, building materials and many basic items needed for maintenance. Water and sanitation facilities have been under strain for many decades. The fact that they remain even barely in working order is due to the efforts of certain humanitarian organizations. Buildings that have been in need of repair for several years and the many buildings that were destroyed during the Israeli military operation in Gaza in 2008-2009 cannot be repaired or rebuilt as long as basic building materials, such as concrete, are not allowed into the Gaza Strip in meaningful quantities.

Violence claims civilian lives in the Strip on a regular basis. In recent months, many people have been killed or injured in escalating violence and sometimes even in open hostilities. Security incidents in the area between Gaza and Israel frequently result in loss of life or in destruction of property or livelihoods. We deplore the civilian casualties and continue to remind all parties that civilians must be spared the effects of the hostilities. Every feasible precaution must be taken to avoid civilian casualties.

ICRC staff constantly monitor the situation of civilians, such as farmers and rubble collectors, who have no alternative but to live and work in areas close to Israel. The area along the fence extending 300 metres into Gaza has been declared a no-go zone by the Israel Defense Forces. A far bigger area, extending nearly one kilometre into the Gaza Strip, is considered dangerous because of the Israeli military’s incursions and use of live ammunition. Whenever civilians suffer direct harm in such incidents, we document the cases and raise our concerns bilaterally and confidentially with the parties concerned.

Can you tell us more about the economic situation?
Gaza is more dependent than ever on outside aid. For young people – fully 50 per cent of Gaza’s 1.5 million residents are under 18 years of age – there is a crushing lack of prospects, and it is a constant struggle for them to maintain hope in the future.

The strict limits on imports and the almost absolute ban on exports imposed by Israel make economic recovery impossible. The unemployment rate currently stands at nearly 40 per cent. It will remain ruinously high as long as the economy fails to recover. This difficult situation exacerbates the considerable hardship already caused by the collapse of previously prosperous branches of the economy.

Over the years, access to land suitable for agriculture has been eroded by restrictions imposed in the areas near Israel and the levelling of land and destruction of trees by the Israel Defense Forces. To make matters worse, the high price or even total lack of some farm inputs such as fertilizer, pesticides, etc., and the lack of export opportunities have weighed heavily on the primary sector. In addition, many fishermen have lost their livelihood as a result of Israel reducing the area at sea within which it allows fishing to three nautical miles from Gaza’s coastline.

Because Israel retains effective control over the Gaza Strip, in particular by maintaining authority over the movement of people and goods, it must fulfil its obligations under the law of occupation and allow the civilian population to lead as normal a life as possible.

Israel eased the closure in June 2010. Has that had a positive effect on the lives of ordinary people in Gaza?
The restriction on the movement of people out of Gaza remains unchanged. The current Israeli permit system, combined with rigorous controls, means that only people in need of medical attention who fulfil strict security criteria are allowed to leave either through the Rafah crossing into Egypt or through the Erez crossing into Israel. Very few other people are allowed out of Gaza.

The entry of goods into Gaza is also still highly restricted, not only in terms of quantity but also in terms of the particular items allowed. Long delays are frequent. Some goods that are allowed in are so expensive that their availability hardly matters to the vast majority of the population, who could never afford them. Although there has been media coverage of the export of certain cash crops such as carnations and strawberries, the actual level of exports from the Gaza Strip remains close to zero. Imports of construction supplies and raw materials are still mostly banned, even though they are vital to the territory’s infrastructure and economic recovery.

Unless there is political change that results in freedom of movement for Gazans, increased imports of a variety of goods and significant exports, there will be no improvement.

How can the ICRC help mitigate the effects of the closure?
To help families make ends meet, we have developed cash-for-work programmes and launched projects that provide farmers with tools and seedlings to improve crop yields.

We are also doing what we can to make sure that injured and sick people receive proper medical attention by providing support for the emergency services of the Ministry of Health and the Palestine Red Crescent Society. The Society provides pre-hospital emergency care and counselling services alongside the many other humanitarian tasks it performs within the Gaza Strip. The ICRC also provides support for the Artificial Limb and Polio Centre, the only facility of its kind in the Gaza Strip, which treated over a thousand patients in 2010.

Our water and sanitation engineers are focusing their efforts on the treatment of wastewater. At a plant that was recently completed in Rafah, some of the treated wastewater can safely seep into and replenish the aquifer, which remains the only source of clean water in the Gaza Strip. Thanks to the latest upgrades at the plant, treated wastewater could soon be used for agricultural purposes such as irrigating trees.

This day in Jewish History, June 21, 1915

John Marshall Slaton, or Jack Slaton, (December 25, 1866 – January 11, 1955) served two non-consecutive terms as the 60th Governor of Georgia.

June 21st 1915

One day before Leo M. Frank is to be hanged by his neck until dead by Sheriff Mangum, the outgoing Georgia Governor John M. Slaton, who also happened to be senior legal partner owner and member in the law firm representing Leo M. Frank, in a gross conflict of interest chose to commute his own clients death sentence to life in prison on June 21st 1915.

Download the 29 page commutation: Leo M. Frank Clemency Decision by John M. Slaton June 21st 1915 in Adobe PDF Format.

To put it into perspective.

Assuming you are a U.S. Citizen, a member of one of the 50 States, the first question to ask is what is your State? (say it out loud… I live in ______ State), The second question, who is your Governor (say it out loud, the Governor of _____ State is _______). Imagine if the Governor of the state you live in (Say his or her name out loud), commuted a convicted murderers death sentence to life in prison, but your Governor also happened to be part owner, as in senior law partner of the Law firm that represented the client who got convicted for strangling a 13 year old girl.

Your Governor is essentially commuting the sentence of one of his or her clients. Now imagine, that the convicted murderer, went through a Coroners Inquest Jury, a Grand Jury, followed by a Trial Jury, and Trial Judge, all giving a guilty decision in their own way, all attempts to have the verdict of the trial set aside, or get a new trial fail, and in total there are 2 years after the trial of judicial review by State, District and Federal Courts, all affirm the guilty decision.

Then the Governor comes along and commutes the sentence of his own client in a gross conflict of interest, does it kinda make sense that people would be outraged to a fevered pitch? or is it just bu$ine$$ and politic$ as usual?

What made it so hard to swallow for the public was that Leo Frank had made a virtual murder confession at his trial on August 18, 1913.

John Marshal Slaton was hanged in effigy as a result of his betrayal of his oath of office.

Slaton was buried in the Grant Mausoleum.

Mary Phagan Kean writes the definitive book on the Leo Frank Case

The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan Kean, Publisher: New Horizon Press; 1st edition (September 15, 1989).

 
<<===== You can DOWNLOAD the book, The Murder of Little Mary Phagan, from the upper middle left hand side of the page, by right mouse clicking the mouse pointer over the PDF and then selecting ‘save as’.
The book, ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ authored by Mary Phagan Kean (the great grand niece of Mary Phagan) is probably the most even-handed book written about the subject and its aftermath in the last 100 years.

 
The book ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ details the most infamously contentious early 20th century rape and strangulation cold case investigation that began at 3:30 AM on April 27, 1913 when the Night Watchman Newt Lee called the police and reported the murder. 56 hours later on April 28, 1913 at 11:30 AM, Leo Frank was arrested, it would be his last day of freedom.

 
Mary Phagan Kean offers a unique analysis of the 29 day capital murder trial which began on July 28 and led to the August 25, 1913 murder conviction of Leo Max Frank, followed by its affirmation by the presiding Judge Leonard S. Roan on August 26, 1913 and a death sentence prescribed by law.

 
The book also discusses Leo Frank’s subsequent post-conviction appeals from 1913 to 1915, and his death sentence commutation by the corrupt Governor John M. Slaton on June 21, 1915. Leo Frank would have his throat slashed on July 17, 1915 by a fellow inmate named Creen and on August 16, 1915, Leo Frank was abducted from prison in a military commando style raid by the elite of georgia and lynched at sunrise on August 17, 1913. Nearly 70 years after his lynching, pressure from the ADL of B’nai B’rith and other Jewish organizations resulted in a highly political posthumous pardon without exoneration for Leo Frank in 1986.

 
Brief Biography of Leo Frank

 
Leo Frank was born in Cuero (also known as Paris), Texas on April 17, 1884. His family moved 3 months later to Brooklyn, NY, where Frank was raised and educated at local public schools. After doing college prep work at the Pratt Institute, Leo Frank matriculated into the Ivy League Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Leo Frank began studying Mechanical Engineering during his first semester in fall of 1902 and completed his studies in 1906. After graduating in June, 1906, Leo Frank bounced around from job to job, until he visited Atlanta Georgia in 1907 and met wit his rich uncle Moses Frank to discuss a potentially lucrative business venture. After visiting Atlanta Leo Frank made a very serious life decision and decided he wanted to participate in his wealthy uncles venture and go on a sojourn to make it happen. Leo Frank traveled to the German Empire where he studied pencil manufacturing. After his 9 month apprenticeship in Europe, Leo Frank returned to NYC, briefly stopping at his home in Brooklyn to visit his family and then made a permanent move to Atlanta, Georgia, in August, 1908, starting a new life in the Heart of the South.

 
1910

 
In 1910, Leo Frank married into a wealthy and established German Jewish family (Selig-Cohen) and became involved with Jewish society and philanthropy, he was elected B’nai B’rith President in 1912. By 1913 Leo Frank had reached the pinnacle of his career at the National Pencil Company, as superintendent, accountant, manager and some would say part owner.

 
1913

 
The National Pencil Co. factory was located on 37 to 41 South Forsyth Street, it was there Thirteen year old Mary Phagan, an employee of Leo Frank had begun working in the early Spring of 1912, about a year before her murder. Mary Phagan worked just down the hall from Leo Frank on the 2nd floor where she participated in the final and finishing production stages of the pencil manufacturing process. Mary Phagan worked in the “metal room”, in a section called the tipping department, her job was inserting erasers into the empty brass metal bands that were attached to the end of the pencils.

 
The metal department, where Mary Phagan worked was adjacent to and contained within it the only bathroom on the floor and also the girls dressing room, the place near where the blood and hair of Mary Phagan would be found on Monday morning at 7AM on April 28, 1913, by early bird employees starting the work week.

 
Once the word got out about the discovery of real evidence, word traveled fast, employees of the whole factory who were already in emotional hysterics would flock to the metal room, gawking at these unusual blood stains on the floor and the tress of 6 to 8 hairs broken off and stuck on the handle of the lathe machine.

 
A white powder haskolene was found suspiciously smeared and rubbed into the fresh blood stains on the metal room floor in front of the dressing room, it appeared to be an attempt to cover up the evidence, but the blood bled through the powder turning the red blood stain variations of white, pink and dark blood red. The blood stain also had a star burst pattern that occurs when the back of someones bloody head is dropped on the floor.
The half-baked and half-assed “clean-up job” appeared to be a failed attempt to cover up the blood stains near where the murder victim it was later revealed was accidentally dropped as she was being moved from the scene of the crime down 2 floors to the spot adjacent to the basement furnace.

 
Little Mary Phagan’s Life:

 
The work Mary Phagan did at the pencil factory for about 7.5 cents an hour, it was her small way of helping support her five siblings, and widowed mother (who remarried a cotton mill worker named Mr. J. W. Coleman in 1912). Mary’s step father knew Mary quite well for 4 years and he identified the hair found on the lathe machine as belonging to Mary Phagan.

 
The week before Phagan’s murder, a shortage of brass supplies at the factory had led to a reduction in her work hours and she was temporarily laid off until the material and supplies could be replenished. Her wages for the shortened work week came to $1.20 or just 7.5 cents an hour for the hours she had worked the previous Friday, Saturday and Monday prior to her being murdered on Saturday, April 26, 1913.
On April 26, 1913, a State Holiday, celebrated locally as Confederate Memorial Day, Mary came to the factory to claim her pay before going to see the Confederate parade with some of her friends and neighbor / co-worker George W. Epps at 2pm.

 
Later in the evening George Epps ran over to Mary Phagan’s home, which was right around the corner, to find out why Mary Phagan never showed up at the designated time. Mary Phagan’s family was already in a state of distress and panic over her being missing, but they also thought she might have gone to stay with a relative. Mary Phagan’s father, Mr. Coleman, had looked for Mary at the Bijou theater, and discovered the Handsome Mr. Darley, Foreman, at the National Pencil Company with another guy, and each one them was with one of the girls from the pencil factory – Mr. Darley was married, but the young girl he was with was not his wife.

April 26, 1913, Noon

When Mary Phagan arrived at the factory at minutes after noon, Marys pay was allegedly issued to her by Leo Frank and according to the pre-trial investigation and later the testimony at the 1913 Trial, Leo Frank was the last person to admit seeing Mary Phagan alive in a virtually empty factory (there were 4 people in the factory at the time of Phagans arrival, when the normal number was more than 100+). It was the reason among others why Leo Frank became a suspect so early on when all things were considered.

George Epps provided troubling testimony to the police, stating that Mary had told him in confidence, that Leo Frank scared her and often made lascivious, inappropriate sexual innuendos and insinuations toward her, that Leo Frank was “after her” in local parlance. George Epps would after the Leo Frank murder trial get kidnapped by Frank cronies, be threatened with violence and forced to recant his testimony by signing a false affidavit under duress. George Epps later signed a true affidavit about the intimate details of his abduction to Alabama and the dishonest trickery that unraveled when he was kidnapped and put under duress to sign a pre-written affidavit.

April 27, 1913

In the early hours of Sunday, April 27, 1913, at around 3:30 AM in the morning, the Negro night watch (“night witch”) Newt Lee made a phone call to the police. Newt Lee found Mary Phagans mangled body on a dirt mound near a furnace in the rear of the basement, with part of her bloody underwear wrapped around her head. Police reported there was evidence she had been dragged from the elevator 140 feet face down, before being dumped next to the furnace, Phagan’s face was scratched up, punctured and covered with filth. The autopsy would reveal she had been hit on the face around the eye with a fist, there was also damage to the back of her head that was likely caused when it hit the handle of the lathe. The underwear of Mary Phagan was torn open, she had been raped, beaten badly and strangled with a 7 foot cord. One doctor testified under oath to several types of specific violence and vaginal damage that occurred, suggesting some kind of rape either penile or by fingers.

Leo Frank

The police after viewing the body of Mary Phagan made several failed attempts at reaching Leo Frank on the phone, after finally reaching him, they went directly to the home of Leo Frank at around 7am in the morning. The detectives arrived at his home, the door was answered by Mrs. Frank, the police asked to speak with Mr. Frank, they requested he accompany them to the factory. Like typical seasoned detectives, without telling Leo Frank what it was about, they observed him, suspicion fell on Leo Frank because he appeared to be extremely nervous, trembling, rubbing his hands, and pale. Police noticed Leo Frank appeared to be badly hung over, bumbling, jimjamming and agitated. Leo Frank also gave overly detailed and meticulous answers on very minor points, his voice was hoarse and he fumbled, butterfingered and struggled with minor tasks like fixing his collar and tie. Moreover, Leo kept saying he hadn’t had breakfast and kept asking for a cup of coffee trying to delay the the process in being taken to the Plant for an emergency. The police asked Leo Frank if he had known who Mary Phagan was and Leo Frank denied knowing a Mary Phagan saying he would need to check the accounting books he managed to be sure.

The Mary Phagan denial would become an important point at the trial, because Mary Phagan had worked for a year on the same floor as Leo Frank, her work station was only a few feet away next to the bathroom, where Leo Frank visited each day more than once. Other employees testified Frank knew Mary on a first name basis, others said the saw him behave in that gray area between politeness and sexual harassment. Mary Phagan had also collected more than 50 pay envelopes from Leo Frank during her 1 year of employment and logged more than an impressive 2,750 hours of work at the factory from Spring 1912 to Monday, April 21, 1913.
Leo Frank flat out got caught in a lie about whether or not he knew Mary Phagan, which damaged his credibility and left people wondering why he was trying to pretend not to know her.

On Sunday, April 27, 1913, Leo Frank said Newt Lee’s time card was punched correctly, but on Monday April 28, 1913, Leo Frank said Newt Lee did not punch his time card at 3 disparate intervals, creating 3 hours of unaccounted for time. Leo Frank told the police to check his body and house, the police found no Marks on his body, and his home and laundry showed no blood stains. When the police searched Newt Lee’s home without a warrant, at the bottom of a laundry barrel they found a bloody shirt. The shirt had blood stains high up on the armpits in the front and back in a way the police immediately thought it was a plant, plus, the shirt was minty clean and did not have the distinctive urine glazed doo-doo brown negro funk on it. It was these three variables the fresh shirt, with oddly placed blood smears and no negro nasty stank ass nigga ass funky smell.
It was as if Leo Frank was trying to implicate Newt Lee, the murder notes “night witch”.

Leo Frank’s last full day of freedom was Monday, April 28, 1913, because on Tuesday April 29, 1913, at 11:30PM Leo Frank was arrested.

After arresting and questioning the black janitor James Jim Conley, who was present at work on the infamous Confederate Saturday, the police eventually cracked James Jim Conley with the 3rd degree and after 3 half-truth affidavits, they finally got James “Jim” Conley to admit he was an accomplice after the fact to the strangulation murder.

James Conley admitted he was asked by Leo Frank to move the body of Mary Phagan to the basement and he ghost wrote four dictated “death notes” (only 2 were discovered) which were scattered next to the head of Mary Phagan once she was dumped in the basement.

The murder notes were a very contrived attempt to make it appear as if Mary Phagan had written the notes after she went to the bathroom and was sexually assaulted there. The notes where clear in their attempt to pin the crime and point guilt to the “long tall slim negro” night watchman Newt Lee (“night witch”). Leaving many people asking themselves whenever in history of the 13 Billion Year Old Cosmos has a black man committed a rape and murder and stuck around to write two (four) murder notes as if they came from the victim in the middle of the rape by night security and then addressing it to her mother describing what happened, “I write while he play”, as if she could write such a letter in the middle of being raped.

The Trial

There was some conflicting testimony about what Leo Frank said concerning a question Mary Phagan asked him at 12:03 PM, “Has the metal come in?”. A Pinkerton detective and defense witness hired by the National Pencil Company contradicted Leo Frank about the answer Mary had given to the question.

The trial would make history, because it would be the first time in the United States of America, where the testimony of two black man (Jim Conley & Newt Lee) would lead to the conviction and death sentence of a white man (Leo Frank) by an all White jury in the white racial consciousness and racially segregated South.

Star Witness Monteen Stover and the (2nd) Leo Frank Murder Confession

Though the Star witness was neither Newt Lee or Jim Conley, but a 14 year old White girl named Monteen Stover who cracked wide open Leo Frank’s alibi. Monteen Stover had come to the factory to collect her pay envelope minutes after Mary Phagan had arrived, but she did not bump into Mary Phagan walking down the stairs and Leo Frank was not in either his inner or outer office, nor was Leo Frank aware that Monteen Stover had arrived and waited for him for five minutes fully between 12:05 to 12:10 PM. Frank would counter the testimony of Monteen Stover stating, he might have “unconsciously” gone to the bathroom during this time. Frank had entrapped himself beyond escape, because the only bathroom on the second floor was located within the metal room, it was the metal room where the murder evidence was found and the prosecution had successfully built a 29 day case that Leo Frank had murdered Mary Phagan there in the metal room between 12:05 and 12:10.

Be sure to read the final closing statements of prosecution team leader Hugh Dorsey and Frank Hooper in American State Trials Volume X 1918 for their unique take on the Leo Frank murder confession. One should also read the really long winded closing arguments of Hugh Dorsey published separately outside of American State Trials Volume X 1918.

Tom Watson

Many would argue the post trial analysis of the Leo Frank murder confession is best articulated by the genius anti-semite Tom Watson in his five booklets on the Leo Frank trial in Watson’s Magazine, January, March, August, September and October of 1915.

Appeals 1913 to 1915

Numerous frivolous, ultra cheesy and half-baked appeal attempts were made by the Leo Frank Legal Defense Team to the Georgia Superior Court, Georgia Supreme Court, US Federal District Court and United States Supreme Court, they were all denied after careful review, with lengthy decisions written and rendered.

Commutation June 21, 1915

The departing Governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton (who also happened to be a senior legal partner in the same law firm which represented Leo Frank), decided to commute the death sentence of his client, Leo Frank, to life in prison on June 21, 1915, just days before the end of his last term as Governor.

1915

The seasoned criminal attorney Tom Watson through his popular Jeffersonian publishing company in 1914 and 1915, mocked Leo Frank calling him a Jewish sodomite and wrote five separate scathing reviews about the Leo Frank Case in January, March, August, September and October of 1915 issues of Watson’s Magazine (These 5 issues are available on Archive.org). They are deliciously sarcastic and filled with energy, seasoned wit and juicy venom.

Shanking July 17, 1915

One month after the commutation of Leo Frank, he had his neck slashed in prison by a fellow violent inmate named Creen, who used a 7 inch butcher knife on Leo’s tender throat. Leo Frank barely survived the attack, the wound was a bit slow to heal in the hot humid summer of 1915.

Almost 2 months later, after Leo Frank received crony clemency, a reduction of his death sentence to life in prison against the wishes of the Jury, a well organized group of about 25 to 35 men, many of which were from Georgia’s highest strata of politics, law and society, organized themselves into the ‘Knights of Mary Phagan’. This newly formed White Immune System Group of Georgia’s elite, sought to fulfill the conviction of the Jury and death sentence judgment preserved and prescribed by Leonard S. Roan. These elite men of the Knights of Mary Phagan wanted to deliver righteous retribution in the form of “Southern Style Vigilante Justice”.
After much careful planning, Leo Frank was kidnapped from the minimum security prison he was housed in the evening of August 16, 1915, driven all through the night and then lynched in the early hours of August 17, 1915, from an oak tree near the town where Mary Phagan had formerly lived.

Post Lynching

Franks dangling body became a public spectacle, photographs were taken and the pictures of Leo Franks lifeless suspended body, gently twirling in the breeze became popular post cards and memorabilia in the South, selling out almost instantly.

Mary Phagan Kean

The book ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ is written by the namesake of the murder victim, Mary Phagan’s great niece named Mary Phagan Kean. When Mary Phagan Kean was a teenager, she discovered her given name was no mere coincidence. When people heard Mary Phagan Kean’s name they started asking her questions about whether she was related to the famous Mary Phagan who had been murdered long ago by Leo Frank on Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913. Mary Phagan Kean would learn a startling secret when she asked her family if she was a blood relative connected to the Mary Phagan who was murdered. When her family revealed the truth about her blood relation, Mary Phagan Kean immediately became insatiably curious about the investigation, trial and aftermath. Instantly becoming a life long student of the case, Mary Phagan-Kean has devoted every free moment in her entire life pouring over and painstakingly long volumes of research and documents, reading every surviving document surrounding the torture, rape and strangulation of her great grand aunt, 13 year old Mary Phagan and the biography of Leo Max Frank.

B’nai B’rith

Leo Frank was the President of the 500 member Atlanta Chapter of B’nai B’rith. As a result of the conviction in this national scandal which became a sensational trial, would become the critical mass of “Anti-semitism” catalyzing the formation of two American groups: the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith in October, 1913, or ADL (www.adl.org) for short, and spark the revival of the defunct nativist and ethnic nationalist Ku Klux Klan (KKK) in 1915.

Jewish Scholars which overwhelmingly wrote the lion share of all the written books, articles, web sites, scripts and texts about the subject almost unanimously allege the investigation, trial, and conviction where part of a widespread Antisemitic conspiracy, a text book case of railroading and framing an innocent Jewish Man because of anti-Jewish racism and religious hatred. Frankite books often leave out most of the relevant facts, evidence and testimony in the Leo Frank case spinning the facts convenient to creating doubt about Leo Franks guilt.

1980’s

Pressure from the powerful and omnipotent Jewish community, Jewish groups and ADL (Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith) with an affidavit from a lonely and senile octogenarian, the former office boy of Leo Frank for 3 weeks in April 1913, a man named Alonzo Mann, resulted in the highly political 1986 Georgian pardon of Leo Frank (without exoneration). There was only one problem, Alonzo Mann was dead and no one could question him. The politically corrupt board forgave Leo Frank, but kept his guilt intact and thus did not disturb the verdict of the Jury.

On March 11, 1986, a pardon without exoneration was issued by the board:

Without attempting to address the question of guilt or innocence, and in recognition of the State’s failure to protect the person of Leo M. Frank and thereby preserve his opportunity for continued legal appeal of his conviction, and in recognition of the State’s failure to bring his killers to justice, and as an effort to heal old wounds, the State Board of Pardons and Paroles, in compliance with its Constitutional and statutory authority, hereby grants to Leo M. Frank a Pardon.

A number of fictionalized media dramatizations have been made about the trial in the form of plays, musicals, miniseries, docudramas, video blogs, songs, treatments and Broadway plays all created by Jews making a mockery of the life of Mary Phagan who is nothing more than a plot antagonist, idealizing and rehabilitating Leo Frank as an innocent Jewish victim of evil Antisemitism. The blood libel against the Leo Frank prosecution continues to this day by the Jewish community, though sometimes it is often couched. The Jewish community won’t dare ever mention the “unconscious” bathroom murder confession Leo Frank made on the witness stand when he was giving his statement at the trial on August 18, 1913, to counter Monteen Stover’s testimony. Leo Frank is the only person in US history to make a virtual murder confession at his own trial. Shocking, but true. See Hugh M. Dorsey, Frank Arthur Hooper and Tom Watson’s interpretation of the Leo Frank murder confession. Also see State’s Exhibit J.

Tom Watson Caused the Jew Leo Frank to be Lynched on August 17th

In this day of fading ideals and
disappearing land marks, little Mary Phagan’s
heroism is an heirloom, than which there is
nothing more precious among the old red hills
of Georgia.

Sleep, little girl, sleep in your humble
grave but if the angels are good to you in the
realms beyond the trouble sunset and the
clouded stars, they will let you know that
many an aching heart in Georgia beats for you,
and many a tear, from eyes unused to weep,
has paid you a tribute too sacred for words.

—Mary Phagan’s epitaph on her tombstone
(donated by Tom Watson, June 25, 1915)


The Tombstone of Mary Phagan

The firebrand populist politician and criminal attorney, Tom Watson, through his press organ, expounded opinions for the voiceless people of Georgia and silent multitudes of Southerners, concerning their outrage over the murder of Mary Phagan. Watson is often wrongly accused of being an anti-Black racist and anti-Semite, but in fact he actually championed civil rights for poor black laborers and defended Jews against the history of Catholic anti-Semitism. It wasn’t until Leo Frank appealed his case with the major financial backing and national media support of his co-religionists that Tom Watson went on the offensive against American Jewry, for their role, in what he perceived as their efforts to subvert justice.

Despite the press frenzy outside of Southern states, defending Leo Frank and rallying to his cause for vindication, there may have been many quiet Northerners, who agreed with the guilty verdict rendered against him. However overall, the Frank case can in a sense, be metaphorically described as a red state and blue state paradigm at play, because of how it opened old civil war wounds regarding outside influence — out of state influence — over an internal affair. Many Southerners were incensed because they felt the vast majority of people defending Leo Frank had never actually read the trial transcript re-published in Atlanta’s local newspapers or vetted the brief of evidence.

Tom Watson and the Lynching of Leo Frank

A vote of 13 to 0 infavor of Leo Frank’s death sentence was first recommended on August 25, 1913 by the jury, and affirmed by the presiding judge Leonard Roan the following day. In terms of the the Leo Frank drama which started with the violent beating, forceable rape and garroting of Mary Phagan on April 26, 1913 between 12:05 and 12:10, peaking with the conviction of Leo Frank at the conclusion of his trial and reaching its crescendo with his hanging on August 17, 1915, Watson is most often cited by the modern revisionists as the central villain in terms of inspiring and instigating the railroading of Frank during his trial, closing the case with an organized lynching to finalize the verdict rendered by the jury and judge.

Jewish Lies About Tom Watson

For more than one hundred years, Watson has been falsely accused of whipping up anti-Semitic sentiment against Leo Frank during the Mary Phagan murder trial, but Watson made no public comments about the case until March of 1914 – seven months after the trial ended. Moreover, Leo Frank’s defenders, then and now, have accused Tom Watson of instigating Leo Frank’s lynching in 1915, but furious sentiment against the convicted murderer of Mary Phagan was widespread amongst the leadership of Georgia’s government and leadership. Some of the most prominent men of Georgia risked their livelihood to ensure Leo Frank was hanged for his crimes, after what they saw as a miscarriage of Justice when Governor John Slaton, commuted the death sentence of his law client (the lawfirm Rosser, Brandon, Slaton and Phillips, represented Leo Frank during his trial and initial appeals).

The presiding trial judge, Leonard Roan, who had the power to downgrade Leo Frank’s punishment at sentencing or give him a new trial refused to do so. Moreover, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled the evidence presented at the Mary Phagan murder trial was sufficient to convict Leo Frank. The Supreme Court of the United States rejected all of Leo Frank’s appeals in their majority and unanimous decisions. Even the outgoing governor of Georgia at the time, John Slaton, in his commutation order that reduced Leo Frank’s death sentence to life in prison, stated that he was sustaining the jury, judge and appeals court, and that anti-Semitism was not a factor in the case against Leo Frank. Even the pardon rendered on March 11, 1986, did not address Leo Frank’s innocence or guilt, but based their highly political decision on a technicality.

What is indeed true and seldom spoken of, is that Tom Watson spoke for the millions of working class Southerners and many of the elites who agreed with Frank’s conviction for the sex murder of Mary Phagan and his subsequent hanging two years later in fulfillment of his punishment. Since 1913, the ADL and organized Jewish groups, continue to smear Southerners as bigoted anti-Semites regarding the Frank trial, despite the fact that the South has typically shown the greatest acceptance of Jews then and now, and stand behind Israel uncompromisingly today. Bible belt and Southern Christian Zionists make up the majority of Gentiles who financially and politically side with Israel against Northern liberals and progressives from coast to coast who often describe the Jewish nation as an Apartheid state.

Attempt if you can to look through the fire blazing eyes of all the people in the United States who were against what they saw as the rapist-pedophile-strangler, Leo Max Frank, being defended by primarily 3% of the total population, Jews who were willing to falsify the legal records of the trial to win support for their fellow co-religionist. Frank’s detractors were sympathetic for the murdered 13-year old Christian girl, who was tragically killed in the spring-bloom of her life and for the grieving family she left behind. Attempt to see their perspective as represented in the writings, published by Firebrand Tom E. Watson about Leo Frank, in five of his Watson’s Magazine issues: January, March, August, September and October, and several individual issues of Jeffersonian Newspapers 1914 – 1917. Quote:


When the highest court in the world
judicially affirms that the State which
‘tried and convicted Frank, accorded
him every right guaranteed to him
under the highest law’, ought not the
decision to be respected?


-Tom Watson

The above quote is from Watson’s Magazine (1915), Tom Watson is expressing the outrage of many Christians, against what they perceived as an ugly and treacherous countrywide (and international) letter writing campaign led by the perfidious Jewish tribe, igniting a racist cause celebre, which resulted in the Governors office being deluged with generic stock letters, requesting clemency and exoneration for Leo Frank.

Southerner rage, was compounded because of a widespread national media smear campaigns against the State of Georgia, by the “Jewsmedia” (though that exact term was not used at the time, it was implied), which might be one of the earliest recorded claims in America about Jewish control of the press. Claims that the Jews dominate and manipulate the International media to their advantage, have reached a fevered pitch in modern times, because of compelling evidence regarding mainstream media ownership and managagement, but those claims should decline as the Internet levels the playing field significantly after 2015. The ease with which anyone can start their own news site is now unprecedented because of social media. There will likely be a dramatic decline in viewership of mainstream media sources beginning around 2013 as more people look for alternative sources of news and entertainment that better reflect the concerns and curiosities of the masses of global citizenry.

Vector One: The Largest Petition and Letter Writing Campaign in U.S. History.

Inspired by Rabbi David Marx, led and funded by powerful and wealthy Jewish interests, including NY & Chicago media magnates, an aggressively well financed attempt was made to get Leo Frank vindicated by the emotional appeal of large numbers of people outside of the State of Georgia and primarily the northern States through the “Ziomedia”, though they didn’t use that exact term, it was exactly what they meant, the anti-semitic term used to describe the over representation of Jewish owners and management in national newspapers and media outlets. Many people then and now, felt after the Leo Frank affair that Jews were using their undue influence for self-serving racist causes.

Jewish Advertising mogul A. D. Lasker and Jewish media magnate Adolph S. Ochs, New York Times owner, took personal interest in the Leo Frank case; rallying together, these tycoons and other Jewish media bosses used their influence to ensure there was national press coverage via their Jewish power broker clique and both of these mogules put up gargantuan sums of money for the Leo Frank defense fund.

Meet Tom Watson

Thomas Edward Watson (September 5, 1856 – September 26, 1922), generally known as Tom Watson and hereafter, is one of the most fascinating and controversial men of late 19th and early 20th century Southern history. For one interesting perspective on Tom E. Watson, start by read his biography, called ‘Tom Watson: Agrarian Rebel’, by C. Vann Woodward. Available for full download in adobe PDF format: http://www.archive.org/details/AgrarianRebel1938BiographyOfTomWatson.

Tom Watson Articulated Leo Frank’s Incriminating Statements as a Kind of Inescapable Entrapment

It would be more than just the August 17, 1915 lynching of Leo Frank which would be linked with Tom Watson by the historical and modern supporter-defenders of Leo Frank, garnering their foaming at he mouth wrath. It would also be Tom Watson’s 1915 vitriolic expose’ of the official record contained within the Leo Frank trial brief of evidence that had been originally ratified by the defense, prosecution and trial judge.

Within the analysis of the Leo Frank trial testimony published in Watson’s Magazine issues (1915), would emerge the real unspoken truth of why Tom Watson is so deeply hated by Leo Frank supporters (what Tom Watson called: Frankites) over the decades and generations. Tom Watson’s zooming analysis of Leo Frank incriminating statements made at the trial on August 18th 1913, made it impossible to overlook or deny his being at the scene of the crime when the murder occurred, except by diehard Frankites who refuse to address this evidence. As it was, then and now, Leo Frank’s incriminating statements are almost certainly ignored with absolute perfection by the Jewish community and Leo Frank partisan Gentiles. Three criminal attorneys articulated the Leo Frank “murder confessions” the best, two of them were State’s Prosecution team members Hugh M. Dorsey and Frank Arthur Hooper, but some might argue Watson’s 1915 articulation was better than the two prosecution team members combined, because of how lucidly he presented the evidence.

Tom Watson had articulated the “murder confession” of Leo Frank, something Leo Frank defenders wished he had never done so forcefully, because the subject was totally avoided and censored in presentations to the public and the last time the subject was even broached, and was only briefly mentioned within the final closing arguments given by the prosecution team members at the end of the Leo Frank trial. Only the most learned Leo Frank scholars who study the Leo Frank trial brief of evidence, and closing arguments of State’s Prosecution attorneys Hugh M. Dorsey and Frank Arthur Hooper (American State Trials Volume x, 1918) know of the Leo Frank’s incriminating statements, these closing arguments where once very difficult to come by for obvious reasons, but they are available now and immortalized thanks to Leo Frank Research Library publishing them on www.Archive.org.

Leo Frank’s alibi reversal was never ever touched upon or mentioned in terms of its breaking analysis by the mainstream media of the nation, nor by the local Atlanta Media. The Constitution and Georgian, left out Leo Frank’s metalroom bathroom statements aswell, only the Atlanta Journal mentioned it in passing, and therefore Watson brought widespread irrevocable attention to the “woopsy daisy” made by Leo Frank, a “supposing” that might have otherwise remained hidden within the 318 pages of trial testimony. Today this incident is drowned out of Jewish and Gentile history, by Leo Frank supporters making a cacophony of persecution and victim claims. Tom Watson put the eternal spotlight on it and brought undue attention to something the Frankites quietly pretend never happened, but now that Watson’s Magazines are digitized and available to the world through the Internet Archive, people are no longer frightened by the Jewish canard: anti-Semite. New inquiry is likely to occur at the centennial of this sensational Southern trial of the century. Now that the word anti-Semite and anti-Semitism makes something a forbidden fruit, individuals are going to start reading Tom Watson’s Magazines January, March, August, September and October 1915 to get the juicy details of the August 18, 1913 Leo Frank trial statement. The best issues to read back to back are the August and September 1915 issues, combined they tend to show why the jury was convinced beyond a reasonable doubt, they also expose the Jewish community stating there was no real compelling testimony given at the trial and anti-Semitism was to blame for Leo Frank’s conviction, are embarrassing racist pathological lies.

Only one person in American History provides physically published analysis of the Leo Frank trial testimony supporting the prosecution side of the Leo Frank case in 1915

There was no published interpretation and analysis of the July 28 to August 26, 1913 trial at the time by what might be called the prosecution side of the Leo Frank case, except when Tom Watson began writing savvy articles in his weekly Jeffersonian newspaper during 1914. What made Watson dangerous, is he deflated any legitimate or illegitimate efforts to exonerate Leo Frank, frustrating a great number of Frankites, who even today shrilly bandy about the anti-Semitism canard. Watson is still a dangerous enemy of the Jewish community and Leo Frank partisans 100 years after the 1913 conviction and 1915 lynching, as writers continue to present the Frank case as a wailing wall of antisemitic persecution, the last thing in the world these Frankites would ever want anyone to do is read Tom Watson’s writings about the case. Watson’s magazine articles published in Jan, March, August, September and October of 1915 make it nearly impossible to believe that Frank was even remotely innocent – that is of course if you do not suffer from the neurosis of self-deception and Jewish egomania to believe Leo Frank was an infallible president of Atlanta B’nai B’rith.

Tom Watson Vs. Leo M. Frank (1914-1917) in the Jeffersonian Newspaper:

Populist Firebrand Tom Watson, a seasoned barrister from Georgia produced a newspaper called ‘The Jeffersonian’ and a monthly magazine called ‘Watson’s Magazine’, both were distributed through his ‘Jeffersonian Publishing Company’ and from a political and social standard, because Tom Watson was a prominent attorney and politician, being both a member of both U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate during his lifetime, it tended to add great strength and credibility to his writing and influence. One hundred years later, his writings on the Leo Frank case are still poignant and very enjoyable to read.

Watson: Heroic Voice of the People or Anti-Semitic Demagogue? Depends on who you ask.

Watson had a lasting influence on Southern history and is still talked about today with love, hate and reverence, depending on the individual or group asked. For the Jewish Community both contemporaneously speaking, Watson represents an anti-Semite antagonist and mob leader of “Southerner hate” vs. “Jewish victimization and persecution”. When August 2015 arrives, Watson’s Magazines which are mostly unknown and rarely ever read, will likely get renewed interest as the media goes into a rabid foaming at the mouth frenzy over the Frank lynching.

White Christian Southerners Vs. White Jews

For Southerners, Watson is remembered and cherished as a kind of Robin Hood hero and Defender of the poor laboring and agrarian castes, against wealthy despotic industrialists, which included the better organized and perfidiously tribal Jewish Community. For the Jewish community, Tom Watson takes on the imagery of a protagonist, an ominous diabolical figure, often labeled as any variation of hater and the man most cited as responsible for insuring the trial of Leo Frank descended into a free for all of circumstantial evidence. The modern Jewish community and Frank partisans, views Tom Watson as a kind of proto-Hitler in the making and the Leo Frank lynching a mini-Holocaust – every Jewish movie, book, article, and play, has, more or less, taken on this supposition.

Watson Magazine on the Leo Frank Case: Anti-Semitic Ad Hominem Attacks?

One thing for certain, Tom Watson’s writings on the Leo Frank case can be summarized as demystifying the longest murder trial in Southern history at the time. Though, it tends to depreciate Tom Watson’s brilliance at simplifying the Leo Frank case, when his writings descend into infantile, but hilariously descriptive ad hominem attacks against Leo Frank (as captured in Watson’s Magazine January, March, August, September and October of 1915). As an example of attacks on the physical appearance of Leo Frank, Watson describes the mandible Jaw of Leo Frank as simian and his goat-like “fearfully sensual” lips as that of a seductive aggressive sexual satyr.

Champion of the Working Class

Tom Watson is very much remembered as a controversial populist writer and politician, who championed poor farmers and the working class in general, including Negroes, but people like Tyrone Brooks of Georgia, never actually took the time to learn this and instead he claims Watson hate African-Americans. In Tom’s ‘Watson’s Magazine’, he often railed against the corruption of the international Catholic Church and even defended Jews, however during and after the tail end of the post Leo Frank trial battle in 1915, he went berserker condemning what he perceived as Jews defending Leo Frank solely for being Jewish, race being used for treacherous, defamatory and slanderous purposes against the State of Georgia and European-American Southerners. When you read Watson’s Magazine, you can feel the energy, fire, venom and rage in the intensity of his words.

Jewish Media Control Tom Watson Claimed

By drowning the nation in duplicitous Pro-Frank radio and news propaganda, to turn him into a persecuted victim-hero, using the loudest and most widespread media circulation, created the sense of national majority support of the people for the Leo Frank Defense side of the equation. In reality it turned the Leo Frank Case into the ultimate Jewish hate crime hoax, the bludgeon of Jewish victim-hood persecution vs. ignorant Southerner (Georgian) race hatred. Watson felt as if the entire state of Georgia had been traduced as a Republic of Savagery.

The Biggest Letter Writing Campaign in U.S. History led by the Jewish Community

Watson also raged against what he perceived as the well organized, big money, tribalist and corrupt Jewish community, one that knows no borders nationally or internationally, which successfully energized a widespread and successful letter writing campaign across the United States and even some international cities in Europe. The letter writing campaign was perceived as the height of Jewish insolence, mostly an in-state started, but big money out-of-state movement, directed at libeling the State of Georgia as an unjust backward, primitive and crass booger-eating hillbilly regime (see Watson’s Magazine, 1915).

The deluging of the Governors office with a tsunami of Pro-Frank support letters, largely in an attempt to create the false impression of an overwhelming democratic and numerical majority paper voting bloc, united to overturn the conviction, and 18 month appeals process, was perceived as an insulting outrage by Southerners and a grave dishonor to Mary Phagan. The nationwide movement for Leo Frank can accurately be described as a letter writing campaign appealing by emotion and passion for a wide range of positive outcomes or appeasements for Leo Frank, from executive clemency to outright exonerating Leo M. Frank from his murder conviction.

The letter writing campaign is a text book example of how to influence people and motivate them. Slice and dice just the right amount of biased information, add a monolithic martyr theme, and spin it with just the right subtlety, package it and deliver it to the general public with a media circus, and if done just right, it will inflame the fires of indignation amongst people of every walk of life. In many ways Leo Frank became like a Jesus Christ figure, because indeed, most people have some altruistic feelings against a perceived gross injustice, that is if you can conjure that perception of injustice in their minds, with a kind of mental religious-science angle, applied by pushing all the right buttons. And most people would fall for it and will respond to the injustice with indignation, especially when someone’s life is on the line. Most people will want to join the cause or help out in some way or another to overturn a perceived injustice, whether it’s donating money, spreading the word of the cause, signing a petition or writing a letter of support. Think of how successful Christianity is with it’s own Jewish Martyr.

The national Jewish letter writing campaign could arguably be considered the most successful paper flooding, pound for pound in U.S. history, showing the supremely unmatched organization skills of a highly motivated Jewish Community, one resulting in over 100,000 letters from across the United States and several European Countries, being sent to Governor John M. Slaton and physically submerging his office with an avalanche of letters the likes of volume never seen or heard of before or since. So many Santa Claus mail bags of letters where sent to the Governors office in Atlanta that John M. Slaton admitted to being unable to open the super vast majority of them. Indeed 99% of them ended up in the furnace unopened, heating his Governor’s mansion, but it was understood that most of the letters were fan mail for Frank and the message of the most successful letter writing campaign in US history was made loud and clear. It would tend to create great tensions in Jewish-Gentile relations in the South and possibly signify the end for the more racially conscious White Southerners that Jews were loyal White Southerners.

An Alleged Jewish Disinformation Campaign Against Non-Jews

Tom Watson’s rage stemmed from the fact that virtually none of the outside people writing support letters on behalf of Leo Frank, had actually ever read the official record of trial testimony or had an understanding of the facts and evidence in the Frank Case. To add more gasoline soaked coal to the bonfire of Jewish-Gentile tension, in a divided, mixed and controversial commutation order, Governor John M. Slaton (1915) tended to corroborate Watson’s position concerning the “outside” meddling, but Slaton was more direct, not mincing words in his commutation order about this vast attempt at emotional appeal by people who had no understanding of the Laws in the State of Georgia or had ever read the trial evidence in the Case.

The Leo Frank trial and appeals documents were difficult to obtain in the early 20th century and 99% of the people interested in the case never took the time to actually get copies of the legal appeals documents which numbered more than 3,000 pages from 1913 to 1915, though the brief of evidence, the core document was only 318 pages, it is not easy for the untrained legal mind to sift. However, thanks to the Internet, most of the surviving Leo Frank documents are slowly being made available to the public and as time goes on it is hoped that all surviving documents of the case will make their way online for the public before 2015.

Watson says, “The Whole State of Georgia Traduced”

At the time, the State of Georgia had the most favorable laws protecting murderers, Frank had to go through a Coroners Inquest Jury (7 men, a Coroner and 6 Jurymen who voted 7 to 0 against Frank), Grand Jury (21 Jurymen who voted 21 to 0 against Frank) and Trial Jury (13 men, 12 Jurymen and a Judge, who voted 13 to 0 against Frank), and once convicted, there were appeals within appeals upon appeals and wheeling and dealing, all the way up to the United States Supreme Court, more than once. The majority decisions were all against Leo Frank, and it was determined he had a fair trial.

Frank and his dream team of lawyers would have months to prepare each appeal in their 1.5 year struggle and more than a dozen judges in their calm polished oak committee rooms would meticulously study, discuss, argue and review the murder trial brief of evidence, pouring over every little minute detail, without the accusation of mob terror being even remotely possible and they determined Leo Frank had a fair trial. The appellate courts, including the Superior Court of Georgia, Supreme Court of Georgia, United States District Court and United States Supreme Court, also gave a unanimous decision Leo Frank had a fair trial and would not disturb the verdict of the Jury, making all the hysterical and emotional claims made by Leo Frank supporters about supposed mob terror and injustice fully null and void, but that didn’t stop them from using the case as a racist anti-Gentile culture war for more than 100 years.

John Marshall Slaton, or Jack Slaton, (December 25, 1866 – January 11, 1955)

Georgia Governor John M. Slaton (June 28, 1913 – June 26, 1915), became a part owner, and senior law partner in the firm chosen, funded and hired to be the Leo M. Frank legal defense team in early July, 1913, which disqualified Slaton from being impartial in his Leo Frank commutation order. In a gross conflict of interest and at the eleventh hour, or just one day before Leo Frank was to be executed, John M. Slaton commuted the sentence of his client Leo M. Frank, from death by hanging, to life in prison, having Frank shipped to a minimum security penitentiary in Milledgeville Georgia. Leo Frank escaped the hangman’s noose on June 21st 1915 by a matter of inches, but the battle to bring Leo Frank to his final justice or injustice (depending on who you ask) did not end there. With new intrigues forming, a plot was brewing and the final say in the matter was not over in the minds of the men who ran the Government of Georgia.

To put the 1915 chapters of the Leo M. Frank Case in perspective, read Slaton’s 29 page clemency order written on behalf of Leo M. Frank and compare it with these works which support the prosecution: (1) Tom E. Watson’s, August and September issues of Watson’s Magazine 1915; (2) Argument of Hugh M. Dorsey; (3) Trial Brief of Evidence (July Term 1913); and (4) Argument of Mr. Frank Arthur Hooper (American State Trials Volume X, 1918), to decide if it was a just and fair commutation provided by John M. Slaton or if it was a undeniable betrayal of the Constitution.

Review the defense position and prosecution positions carefully, be able to argue both sides superbly.

The Jewish Defense Position

From the Leo M. Frank defense and Jewish community perspective, the commutation primarily takes into consideration some inconsistencies in the the testimony of Jim Conley and disregards entirely the main star witness Monteen Stover’s testimony, who is minimized.

The major issue concerning Jim Conley’s testimony being, as Oney put it literally, is “the shit in the shaft”. Jim Conley had dumped a natural steaming pile of fresh faeces in the elevator shaft, before the elevator was used to remove the body of Mary Phagan to the rear of the basement. This would mean that at the bottom of the uneven elevator shaft floor tray, where there was trash strewn about, there would have been a fresh pile of human excrement left there by Jim Conley and when the police arrived Sunday morning and took the elevator down to the basement, that it mashed this pile of human feces, causing it to kinda unlock and immediately release it’s terrible smell (I know this sounds absurd and you’re rolling your eyes, but try to hear out this defense position). And that Leo Frank should be exonerated because the pile should have been mashed beforehand, releasing the smell already, if Conley and Frank took the body of Phagan down to basement by elevator, they would have mashed it already, before the police came, however, before Conley and the police could have anticipated the “shit in the shaft” exoneration defense, Conley mentioned that Frank had exhibited nervous and hasty behaviors using the elevator and stopping it too soon or prematurely, and at one point in the elevator, this hasty behavior caused Frank to fall into Conley embrace. Is it possible the elevator didn’t go all the way down in the basement?

Leo Frank was jerky, nervous and bugging out on the afternoon of the murder, it is possible that he might have pulled the chain too soon, a couple of inches above the pile of excrement which was resting at the bottom of an uneven elevator shaft floor, before the elevator touched the ground. It was also determined that the bottom of the elevator did not bottom out and was uneven, because it was a dirt floor and the bottom of elevator shafts always have a little extra room and often trash. Could the other trash have prevented the elevator from going all the way down? The police did poke about at the trash in the basement elevator tray.

In fact the entire basement floor was an uneven dirt floor, the elevator shaft was no different. Moreover, Reuben Rose Arnold, arguably the best lawyer on the Leo Frank defense team, suggested Conley dumped Mary Phagan down the elevator shaft from the 1st floor, 14feet up, is it possible she would have landed smack square on Jim Conleys faeces? or did she miss it, but if she missed it and was dragged or carried, wasn’t there a risk of bumping into that faeces, or scraping against it? It is after all very dark in that basement which had only one primitive gas jet, barely providing any light for the gloomy basement.

Final Analysis (no pun intended) of the Shit in the Shaft Exoneration Movement

It’s really hard not to poke fun, but all this speculation about the “shit in the shaft” is silly. In addition, what makes “the shit in the shaft” exoneration movement so funny, is that fresh human faeces does not withhold its smell until mashed and that the floor of elevator shafts. Conley describing Leo Frank making hasty stops with the elevator, could have meant in his rush, Frank may have stopped the elevator just moments before it touched the uneven, garbage strewn, floor tray of the basement. Regardless of all of this, whether it is right or wrong, the “shit in the shaft” is a shamelessly desperate and chintzy attempt to exonerate Leo Frank, because human feces smells the moment it is released. Human feces does not have a magical shell around it that bocks the smell until it is cracked open, so the “shit in the shaft” movement was another embarrassing attempt by Leo Frank supporters to get him exonerated.

Is it Possible to Convict Leo Frank without Conley?

From the Leo M. Frank prosecution side, Georgia community and Southern position, it was believed, as Watson articulated, that it will always be possible to fully convict Leo M. Frank without the testimony of Jim Conley and that John Slaton disregarded volumes of facts from the official record and evidence, especially the testimony of star witness Monteen Stover, a young White girl who said she looked for Leo Frank in his inner and outer office between 12:05 and 12:10 and that Frank’s office was empty. Monteen Stover’s statement was incriminating because Leo Frank said Mary Phagan was alone with him during this time (State’s Exhibit B).

The Neutral Dispassionate Researcher Position

From the position of a dispassionate researcher, whether the commutation of Leo M. Frank was right or wrong, it ignited an inferno of anger in the people of Georgia, Southerners in general and most probably Northerners who were Prosecution Partisans (Right Leaning Christians). Many felt it was a great betrayal and injustice that a well connected Jew could buy himself out of a death sentence for the Murder of a teenage Christian girl. In response to Slaton’s controversial clemency order, Tom Watson exploded to new heights of ferocity. Watson’s fire and brimstone is unrivaled in terms of his sarcastic wit.

Tom Watson Vindicates and Shields the Lynchers From Prosecution with the Inked Feathered Pen

Of all the writing on the Leo M. Frank Case by Watson, one stands out above the rest. Available for Download: 4. The Official Record in the Case of Leo Frank, Jew Pervert, September 1915 by Tom Watson, showing his true colors, Watson dubs Frank a “Jew pervert”.

One might argue that Watson’s September 1915 “Jew Pervert” publication was superior and more convincing in terms of making a powerful case to convict Leo M. Frank for murder, more so than ‘The Argument of Hugh M. Dorsey’. Watson seems to transcend the best elements of Mr. Frank Hooper and Mr. Hugh Dorsey’s closing remarks, which isn’t difficult to do given that people were discussing the case for countless months and years afterward analyzing it with metaphorical electron microscopes.


The Final Analysis of Watson from the Southerner Perspective

For the people of Georgia, Tom E. Watson is considered an immortal hero of the people, an invincible Promethean standing against a fang-mouthed ethnocentric troglodyte faced Jewish community that resembles an ugly monolithic Titan. The name Tom Watson, for Southerners is synonymous with the merger of Robinhood, a prodigious savant Detective, populist politician of the people, and seasoned Lawyer.

The Knights of Mary Phagan

This group of elite men who infamously forged themselves as The Knights of Mary Phagan in June 1915, planned one of the most audacious prison breaks in Southern and possibly U.S. history, executed with surgical precision, they overpowered the guards at the Milledgeville prison and abducted Leo M. Frank from his prison dorm bed, on August 16th 1915 at around 11 O’clock in the evening, five men dragged him out of bed, the party of 25 men vanished into the summer midnight towards Marietta in slow moving Model T fords, cruising at 18 miles an hour on pot hole pocked rolling dirt bumpy roads in the pitch blackness of night, for what would feel like hundreds of miles, “Are we there yet?”. They traveled 170 miles, and had to stop once half way to fix a flat.

During the military style operation of kidnapping Leo M. Frank, not a single gun shot was fired at any time during the raid. The Knights of Mary Phagan drove Frank toward Cobb County, Georgia, at Sheriff William J. Frey’s Cotton Gin estate and the lynching spot became known as Frey’s grove. The place was selected, because Phagan had lived near there formerly, and it was felt to be a significant and symbolic spot by the lynch party. Just after the sun rose on August 17th 1915 and the morning dew kissed the sky, they read Leo Frank the sentence of Judge Leonard S. Roan, kicked away the table he was perched upon and strangled Leo M. Frank from a mature oak tree shaped like a Y.

The KKK is reborn Thanksgiving 1915

Moreover, the rebirth of the formerly defunct KKK, the Leo Frank defense side of the equation says, was inspired by Tom Watson because he energized a hurricane of antisemitic hate and racism, bringing the public to a fevered pitch against the Jewish community. However, the KKK would say the rebirth of the Klan was inspired because of the Murder of little Mary Phagan was with absolute certainty committed by Leo M. Frank and the Jewish community waged a multi-state and international ethnoreligious tribal war against European-Americans over it, one that still rages today in the Jewsmedia. Moreover, the KKK would claim, the Jewish community unleashed a disgusting nationwide media hate campaign against the Glorious State of Georgia and even worse, that the Luther Z. Rosser Defense Team, Dr. Rabbi David Marx and Lucille Selig used every criminal means and tactic of genuine underworld subversion, gutter behavior, bribery, coercion and blackhanded enterprise in an attempt to free a loathsome pedophile-rapist-murderer.

Watson’s publications surge in readership.

Watson’s controversial September 1915 “Jew Pervert” publication reached the zenith of readership during his magazines reign, formerly a circulation of around 30,000, the zine had surged well beyond the printing presses capacity of 100,000 and could still not even meet the insatiable demand. The “Leo Frank” issues where read, re-read, shared and re-shared, until they were worn out into beaten up tattered rags. Very few of these issues have survived today, but they are available now in digital format on the Internet Archive www.Archive.org aside from the typos they are well written and an interesting read from a historical standpoint.

When Watson began writing articles about the Leo M. Frank Case in December 1914 and published booklets starting in January 1915 within his Watson’s Magazine, this surge in publication numbers and demand was due to the ravenous hunger and sensational fanfare for Watson’s refreshingly powerful and invigorating wit and sarcasm, especially in scoring Leo M. Frank and his Jewish allies who he claimed control the national media. For people who had blindly, indignantly and emotionally hated Leo M. Frank, Watson provided a delicious kind of articulation with lucid arguments and logical explanations, with detective-scientist analysis and clear reasoning to unequivocally affirm the judgment of guilty for L. M. Frank.

Protestants Vs. Judaism

Watson became a fire and brimstone hero against what was perceived as a perfidious big money manipulating Jewish ethnoreligious group that had no state or country borders, an unscrupulous tribe of Hebrews (as they were sometimes called back then) willing to spare no dollar or effort to liberate one of their own high profile child molesters, regardless of whether or not the evidence was strong or not on behalf of his guilt. It almost doesn’t even matter today that the evidence against Leo Frank is overwhelming, Jewish groups, high profile Jews of all walks of life, push the antisemitism, victim and persecution angle on the Leo Frank case, as if grandee Leo Frank has taken on the status of an infallible mythical holy religious martyr of Judaism. Leo Frank becomes a new chapter in the religious scriptures of Judaism with a mellow dramatic flare.

Tom Watson uses the official stenographed record of Leo M. Frank’s murder trial testimony to make the kind of argument you would have expected from Hugh M. Dorsey, logical and well thought out, analyzed with superb reasoning, using only the relevant parts of the testimony and evidence, to convince the Jury to convict. Though in many respects some of Watson’s arguments are more convincing than Dorsey’s, observers might argue, in terms of clear and logical formulation. Though some of the antisemitic language and characterizations used by Watson appealed to the basest of human emotions.

Tom Watson’s Coup De Grâce Reviewed

‘The Official Record in the Case of Leo Frank, Jew Pervert’, September 1915 by Tom Watson is arguably the best work Tom Watson had ever put together on the Leo M. Frank Case despite some overt Anti-Semitic language, it provides a superb and fresh analysis of the trial. Some of the language can at times detract from the content and substance of the arguments and reasoning.

Leo Frank’s Statement Revealed Something

Surprisingly, the Solicitor General, Hugh Manson Dorsey and Mr. Frank Arthur Hooper, weakly covers this one distinct area, but Hooper does slightly better, he brushes over it with vague, but visual wording. Dorsey had an opportunity and so did Hooper to spend more time interpreting or arguing a very damaging and interesting tidbit of information Leo M. Frank orally gave to the Jury – Watson makes sure to spend ample time on “it”. What is “it”? We will get to it.

Observers would reason that Dorsey had to walk a very cautious and fine line, as to not give too much credibility for Leo M. Frank’s total unsworn statement to the Jury, as the reason why the prosecution did not spend more time on specific areas of Leo Frank’s own damaging testimony. Dorsey and Hooper, made sure not to focus on any one piece of evidence and testimony, but to use all the best elements in synergy, so that no matter how much the defense tried to break apart an issue here or there, they would ultimately fail against the chain of circumstantial evidence that encompassed Leo Frank. When the wind blows through a weeping willow, you can see the weeping willow ebb and flow in the wind, you can not see the wind itself, but you know the wind is there because the tree showed the evidence. When Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan in the metal room between 12:05 and 12:10, there were no hidden cameras to capture the event, but all the evidence showed it occurred.

The Unconscious Climax

The climax of this infamous booklet by Watson (September 1915) points out that Leo M. Frank, made an “unconsciously” fatal and damaging statement during his testimony during his murder trial to the Judge and Jury on August 18, 1913. Watson would claim that a key segment of Leo Frank’s statement to the Jury amounted to an unconscious confession that he murdered Mary Phagan in the metal room.

Does Leo M. Frank incriminate himself?

Indeed, Frank says something to counter Monteen Stover’s testimony that even the Leo Frank defense team lawyers and contemporary Frankites would wish he had never said, it was something that would have sent chills up the spines of anyone who had watched the trial closely, listened carefully and knew the layout of the National Pencil Company 2nd Floor.

The Prosecution used 3D and 2D Models

All throughout the trial, a very detailed three dimensional model of the factory was used to assist the prosecution in developing their chain of events leading up to and after the murder. Moreover, newspapers also published very well designed two dimensional models. The brief of evidence in the Leo M. Frank murder trial, also includes aerial two dimensional models of the pencil factory levels, specifically the 2nd floor. The details and explanations are mostly clear in these diagrams which are available for your review.

No contemporary writers touch the “unconscious” bathroom visit

It is perplexing that no contemporary Leo Frank partisan writers, like Steve Oney or Leo Dinnerstein cover these ominous and specific words Leo Frank made during his statement to the Jury, testimony Frank gave in an attempt to account for the unaccounted time-hole in his alibi, especially due to the sworn evidence of Miss Monteen Stover, who came to the Factory for her pay envelope at about the same time as Mary Phagan. Monteen Stover arrived just minutes after Mary Phagan arrived at Leo Frank’s second floor office, but when Monteen Stover stepped into Leo Frank’s empty office, Leo Frank and Mary Phagan were already in the metal room.

Monteen Stover is the Star Witness

Watson would argue that because Frank never mentions Monteen Stover during his whereabouts on the afternoon on April 26th 1913 between 12:05 and 12:10, Monteen Stover becomes the main star witness in the trial, not Jim Conley. Monteen Stover made it possible to convict Leo M. Frank and the defense made no effort to impeach her testimony.

Watson Solves the Murder of Mary Phagan without Conley

In “Jew Pervert”, Watson believes he solved the Mary Phagan Murder, without using Jim Conley’s testimony – thus countering the Defense position that without Conley’s own words and murder trial testimony, Leo Frank would never have been convicted. Most of the arguments by Dorsey and Hooper at the end of the trial did not rely solely on Conley, but on other features of the evidence, including the Star Witness testimony of Monteen Stover. The laws of Georgia at the time stipulate that a person can not be convicted by an accomplice, so Conley’s testimony was given only minor mention in the closing arguments. Dorsey and Hooper had to secure a conviction by building a credible case beyond the testimony of Jim Conley.

The People of Georgia are Convinced with a Kind of Religious Fanaticism.

Watson with venomous rage reveals from the official record that Leo Frank and Monteen Stover by their own individual testimony together, solve the murder mystery cold case of little Mary Phagan, making any alternative impossible.

Watson’s Exultation

Watson says Leo M. Frank entrapped himself beyond escape on August 18th 1913

Leo M. Frank to fill in the glaring hole in his alibi created by Monteen Stover, he put’s himself “unconsciously” where the prosecution built it’s case on where the murder of Mary Phagan occurred, namely the 2nd floor metal room, where the bathroom is located. Why Leo Frank would say something like this is impossible to figure out.

Pre-Climax of the Trial, Before Jury is Charged to Decide the Case.

There is one point in the trial where it was as if the whole of the Universe became one single legal eye, looking under a magnifying glass, examining this case and it was on August 18th 1913 when Leo Frank mounted the stand and spoke directly to the Jury and for the first time told the panel of 13 men (Judge and Jury) and 250 spectators that he might have unconsciously gone to the bathroom in the metal room at the approximate time of the murder.

Note the importance of it being the first time Leo Frank mentions unconsciously leaving his office, as before August 18, 1913, Leo Frank claimed he never left his office from noon to 12:25 at the coroners inquest (see newspaper articles), and he also told police he was in his office every minute from noon to 12:35. These early statements were entered into evidence.

Dorsey’s Noose

All the individual pieces of evidence came together as single strands of entwining wire, wrapping and weaving into an unbreakable noose that Leo Frank put around his own neck, a paraphrase of the colorful narrative Solicitor General Hugh M. Dorsey described in his final Arguments at the trial. No single piece of individual evidence convicts Leo Frank, it is all the evidence taken together that hangs him, Dorsey muses. This made it really difficult for the defense who concentrated too much effort on failed attempts to break down Jim Conley on the stand.

Watson: A Secret Murder Confession.

Amongst the long winded diatribe given by Leo Frank at the trial, there are some very specific words in Leo M. Frank’s testimony on August 18, 1913, there is a passage that if one has been paying very close attention to the testimony, and has a very clear and deep understanding of the layout of the National Pencil Company factory diagrams, it leaves one in absolute utter shock, that a secret confession would almost be made at the Trial by Leo M. Frank. Even today it is shocking Leo Frank would incriminate himself. When in the history of the United States has someone made a virtual murder confession at their own trial?!

Leo Frank essentially confesses to the Murder by proxy and fiat.

On August 18th 1913, during his loquacious 4 hour testimony before the Jury, Leo M. Frank spent most of the time in boring and mind numbing details explaining how he does complicated pencil mathematical computations to the point of making everyone numb in the court room. In fact for nearly three or more hours out of a total 4 hour statement time to the Jury, Leo Frank in an attempt to show that he was too busy that day to commit the murder, went over boring financial sheets, order forms and tabulation charts with nauseating effect. To paraphrase Oney writes there was something unsettling and unconvincing about Leo Franks statements and in the People vs. Leo Frank Oney makes the suggestion that if Sigmund Freud were watching the trial testimony of Leo Frank he would have said he was hiding something. Indeed Frank was hiding something, but he stopped hiding it when he made his “unconscious” bathroom confession.

When Frank was not going over the minutiae of the work he did that day, he sprinkled about and spoke about his whereabouts here and there, he talked about the people he saw and the time of the day, all based on the large time clocks in his office. Frank in his statement to the Jury recollected some details with exquisite clarity and at other times seemed suspiciously vague, but one thing he said would shock the whole court and knock them out of their chairs!

Leo M. Frank Goes to the Bathroom “Unconsciously” in the Metal Room

When Frank told the jury he must have “unconsciously” left his 2nd floor office and went to the 2nd floor bathroom down the hall to use the toilet or urinate in the metal room, thus attempting to account for the glaring hole in Frank’s alibi created by Monteen Stover, he had incriminated himself beyond retreat.

I Repeat Unbelievable: A window or period of time was specifically created during the five minutes of Monteen Stover waiting from 12:05 to 12:10, it was time that Monteen testified to and was credible because she wanted her pay envelope, as she was looking for Leo M. Frank in his empty 2nd floor office she described the building as seeming deserted. This testimony tends to corroborate Leo M. Frank’s own trial testimony words as he puts himself in the 2nd floor metal room bathroom, the very place where the prosecution spent 29 days in total building a case that Frank murdered Mary Phagan.

Everything leads to the bathroom?

The damage of Frank’s testimony is this: To get to the bathroom on the 2nd floor one must physically walk through the metal room. When Frank uttered these words, all the people watching, who were paying attention, must have experienced a spine tingling moment, and the jury which was paying close attention, they too would have been in a silent shock, because all 250 people in the court room knew that Mary had not “unconsciously” gone to the toilet, at the same time Frank did! And they know she didn’t go downstairs, or she would have bumped into Monteen Stover.

The Death Notes Lead to the Bathroom

The Death Notes put Mary in the bathroom making water (using the toilet or urinating) before she was attacked, beaten, raped and killed. The 5 inch in diameter fresh blood stain with a sunburst pattern on the floor of the metal room in front of the dressing room, along with 6 or 8 strands of Mary Phagan’s hair found on the lathe handle that weren’t in the metal room on Friday, but were there on Monday morning, makes a credible case for the prosecution that she was killed in the metal room. All the testimony and evidence lead to the metal room. Frank said he went to the metal room, Conley said he found the body in the metal room after Frank told him to go there, the murder notes lead to the metal room bathroom, the blood on the floor was in the metal room, the hair on the lathe was in the metal room, Mary worked in the metal room, the kind of cord used to strangle Mary was found in the metal room, everything leads to the metal room.

How do you get to the bathroom?

One has to go through the metal room to get to the toilets, this is one of the most important facts demonstrated on the National Pencil Company factory diagrams. With the prosecution building its entire case around Frank murdering Mary in the Metal room, Frank with his own words puts himself unconsciously there where all the testimony and evidence said the murder occurred.

Excerpt from Watson’s Jeffersonian newspaper March 25th 1915 Issue:

The Leo Frank Case Still Raging in Northern Papers

A letter to the editor….

Dear Sir:

Leo Frank’s effort to account for his absence from his office from 12 noon until 12:20 p.m., the very time that little Mary Phagan was being outraged and murdered, by stating that he might have unconsciously gone to the toilet, is absurd to the extreme.

No man ever went into a toilet without a shock caused by the great difference in the air as between the toilet and the hallway, and I venture the assertion that even though one were walking in his sleep, the shock to his sense of smell would arouse him immediately to consciousness.

At the hotel dinner table recently several drummers and a country newspaper editor all expressed their belief in Frank’s innocence, because the paid hirelings of big magazines and prostituted newspapers as well have acquitted him. One of the drummers said that out of 549 letters to the Post-Dispatch of St. Louis—Mr. Palitser’s western edition of the egotistical New York World—534 of the writers believed Frank’s innocence.

My reply was that probably 532 of the 549 letters were from Israelites and that none of them had read the evidence as shown by the record. I also handed the editor my Watson’s for March, and dared him to read it.

If the big Jew editors, bankers and others don’t look out, they will fan into flame the smoldering embers of that old-ground-in-the-bone prejudice form which even the double eagle may be unable to save them.

–BOB MUNROE, Arkansas, published: March 25th 1915

Watson responds..

Outsiders cannot, or will not, weigh the undisputed which prove Frank’s terrible crime. Excuse me for again saying that these convincing facts are—

(1) That Frank’s own friends and employees—Schiff, Barrett, etc.—prove that the physical indications of the crime were on Frank’s office floor within a few steps of his office;

(2) That Frank’s own confession placed the murdered girl in his office, and in his company, a few minutes before she disappeared;

(3) That Monteen Stover would have met Mary Phagan going out, if Mary had gone out—for Frank’s own stenographer and Frank’s own statement fixed the time by the clock, when Mary disappeared, and when Monteen went to Frank’s office;

(4) That Mary must necessarily have been in the metal room, where the blood was found, at the time Monteen was in Frank’s office, and waiting around for him;

(5) That Frank was not in his office at that

(The rest of this newspaper article continues on page six, we do not provide it here)

The chain of events according to Tom E. Watson’s five collective booklets on Leo Frank (Watson’s Magazine, Jan., March, August, Sept. and Oct. 1915

Watson continues along the lines that Leo M. Frank, and his bewildered lawyers failed to see or pretended not to see was this:

Defense witness Detective Harry Scott

Ironically, it was powerful evidence the defense witness, Pinkerton Detective Superintendent Harry Scott (who was hired by National Pencil Company) told the Jury, that Leo Frank answered “I Don’t Know”, when Mary Phagan asked Leo M. Frank in his second floor office, “Has the metal come in yet?”. This testimony creates three dimensional motion and motive to go to the metal room with, “Let’s Go SEE?!” thus putting Frank and Mary walking down the hall to the 2nd floor metal room to find out. Jim Conley also said he heard Leo Frank walking with Mary to the metal room.

Watson continues…

It was just as necessary for Frank to explain WHERE MARY PHAGAN WAS, while Monteen Stover waited in Leo M. Frank’s empty office (Frank said Mary left his office), as to explain Leo M. Frank’s OWN DISAPPEARANCE, at that fatal time between 12:05 and 12:10, maybe 12:07 (Frank said he unconsciously went to the bathroom in the metal room).

Watson says: Frank’s repeated statements entrapped himself beyond escape!

Watson continues: Frank said, again and again, that Mary came next after Hattie Hall (Hattie Hall left the factory at noon), and Frank did not mention Monteen Stover, an unimpeachable witness, who claimed she was in Leo Frank’s empty inner and outer office from 12:05 to 12:10.

This proved to the jury that Frank did not know of Monteen Stover’s coming. Leo Frank never mentions the prosecutions star witness Monteen Stover, in his testimony. Which means Frank was indeed not in his office 12:05 to 12:10, despite the fact Frank told detectives he was in his office every minute from noon to 12:35. Thus Leo Frank was caught in a lie about his whereabouts.

And Frank would have known about Ms. Monteen Stover, had he been in his 2nd floor office, when he said he was there “every minute from noon to 12:30”. Now, as he had (in ignorance of Monteen’s visit) placed both Mary and himself in his office — while Monteen waited in his empty office — he had deliberately and repeatedly lied as to Mary’s whereabouts, as well as his own. Frank’s Alibi does not stand up by his own words and the testimony of Monteen Stover.

Frank might have “unconsciously” gone to the toilet as he said in his unsavory testimony at his murder trial. Very well; but where did Mary Phagan go people are asking? According to Frank she left the office, but where did she go? Downstairs to bump into Monteen Stover? or to the toilet in the second floor metal room to make water as the contrived death notes point? Or did she go to see if her work had come in the metal department in response to Frank’s “I don’t know if the metal has arrived yet”. It’s her livelihood, of course, she wants to go see if she is going to have a Job on Monday morning or if she is still laid off. She had been working 55 hours a week at the factory, loyally for a year, and it was of the utmost importance to determine whether or not she would have a job or not, and certainly the factory was not about to go out of business. So when was the metal supposed to arrive? Wouldn’t Leo Frank the superintendent and account who is responsible for knowing these things know when?

Frank said he went to the bathroom which is located in the Metal Room to use the toilet or to urinate (to the Jury). If Phagan went to see if her work had arrived she also went to the second floor metal room and if she had gone to make water (urinate), she would have also gone to the metal room. If she did not check on her work or go to the bathroom, she went down stairs to leave the building and would have bumped into Monteen Stover between 12:05 and 12:10 on April 26th 1913. If Mary Phagan had gone down stairs and Conley attacked her in broad day light, Monteen Stover would have walked in on them and Jim Conley would not be stupid enough to attack Phagan in the most high traffic area of the building. Monteen Stover did not see Mary Phagan and therefore the only possible explanation is that Mary Phagan and Leo Frank were in the metal room.

To paraphrase Watson: because Phagan’s hair, and her blood, and the only possible explanation of the wounds— the swollen eye in front, and the scalp cut on the back of the head, ranging from down upward — were all back there at the metal (room) department, where the toilet was.

The fact you have to walk through the metal room / department to get to the bathroom puts Frank in a blind alley – NO ESCAPE. The murder window of time had been narrowed down to Leo M. Frank’s original statement to Chief Landford on April 28th 1913 (States Exhibit B) that Mary arrived between 12:05 to 12:10, maybe 12:07. And regardless of whether Phagan came before or after Monteen Stover they would have bumped into each other, but they did not.

Watson calls Frank an infatuated young degenerate! To escape Monteen’s evidence, and to explain his absence from his office from 12:05 to 12:10, he supposed himself to have gone, “unconsciously,” to the only place in his factory where there were damning and damaging evidences of the crime. Frank puts himself in the 2nd floor metal room bathroom during the time period of 12:05 to 12:10 on April 26th 1913.

Watson’s Final Conclusion: The metal room is the very place where Leo M. Frank murdered Mary Phagan and the prosecution spent 29 days from July 28th 1913 to August 25th 1913 successfully convincing the Jury that Leo Frank had murdered Mary Phagan between 12:05 and 12:15.

Bottomline: Monteen Stover is the Star Witness, not Jim Conley. Watson uses Leo Frank’s own testimony to convict Frank without the use of Jim Conley’s testimony to solve the murder of Mary Phagan.

Prelude to Watson’s Magazine January 1915

In the Jeffersonian Newspaper December 17th 1914, Watson gives a teaser and successfully promotes his Watson’s Magazine January 1915 issue.

Jeffersonian Newspaper December 17th 1914 Watson writes:

In the January 1915 issue of Watson’s Magazine, which will be out in a few days, there is a careful review of the State’s case against Leo Frank. It is too long for our weekly paper, but not too long for the honor of Georgia, the integrity of her courts, and the majesty of her laws.

So persistent have been the falsehoods that have gone abroad, and so unscrupulous the methods adopted to save Frank from the just consequences of his premeditated and awful crime against poor Mary Phagan, that I considered the time well spent that was required to write out a fair argument on the material facts.

I have not used the negro’s evidence at all!

The evidence of Jim Conley is not necessary for the conviction of Frank. This statement will create surprise, no doubt, but why?

Because Frank, and Burns, and the lawyers, and the newspapers, and C.P. Connolly have so often alleged that he was convicted on the testimony of Jim Conley, “a drunken brute of a negro.”

That allegation is impudently false, just as was Frank’s written and published statement, that the Supreme Court of Georgia had never reviewed the evidence in the case.

If you will simply read the record that went up, on the motion for a new trial, and will read Hugh Dorsey’s speech, you will see at once how outrageously Frank has misrepresented the relation of Conley’s testimony to his conviction.

Dorsey did not rely on the negro’s evidence; he scarcely touched upon it in the argument: he placed the case almost entirely upon those PROVED CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH ARE INCONSISTENT WITH FRANK’S INNOCENCE.

Don’t take my word for this: Dorsey’s speech (Argument of Hugh M. Dorsey) was reported by a stenographer, and has been published in booklet form. Read the speech!

As already stated, it is impossible for me, in this paper, to go over all the proved circumstances, which appear in the record; I do that in the magazine. But, I will call your attention to one vital, fatal point against Frank.

You will remember that the undisputed evidence placed both Frank and the negro in the factory building, at the time of the crime. Frank’s present story puts both him and the negro there. Mrs. Arthur White’s testimony also puts both Frank and Conley there.

Indisputably, the girl was there, for her blood marks were on the floor, and her body, with her under-garments dyed in her virginal blood, was there.

(CONTINUED ON PAGE EIGHT of Jeffersonian Newspaper December 17th 1914, Which has been left out here, but will be added in the future) For now, start with January 1915 issue of Watson Magazine.

From THE THOMAS E. WATSON PAPERS Site.

“As one who is quite familiar with the Thomas E. Watson Papers, let me urge every research library with an interest in American history to acquire this immensely valuable collection in microfilm form.”

C. Vann Woodward, Sterling Professor of History Emeritus, Yale University and author of Tom Watson, Agrarian Rebel

The life and career of Tom Watson (1856–1922) embodied the major themes of southern politics for two generations. Studying Watson’s public life offers valuable insights on Populist and Democratic Party politics, race relations, rural poverty, antimilitarism, isolationism, and many other topics central to understanding the region and the times.

Watson represented the growing mass of poor farmers in the South and Midwest at a time when their economic and political status was rapidly slipping in the wake of urbanization and industrialization. He lashed out at the growing influence of cities and corporations in America, harkening back to a Jeffersonian ideal of a republic of independent yeomen.

When as an incumbent Georgia congressman he bolted from the Democrats for the new People’s (or Populist) Party in 1892, Watson began his rise to national attention. His talents as an impassioned orator and popular magazine editor catapulted him to the leadership of the southern Populists, whom he represented in the 1896 presidential campaign as William Jennings Bryan’s running mate. Twice in later years he would be the Populist presidential candidate. Although he was an ardent supporter of the free coinage of silver, he fought within the party to broaden its focus from simple monetary reform to other causes such as antitrust and railroad regulation.

Watson’s early populism was an appeal to the oppressed of both races against the common foe of corporate domination. That appeal came to grief in the rising tide of racism at the end of the century, and by 1906 Watson was in the forefront of those sponsoring state legislation to ensure white supremacy. The documents that trace and help explain that transition will be for many researchers the most intriguing in the collection. Watson’s dominance in Georgia politics during much of the new century’s first two decades gives his personal odyssey a special significance.

This narrowing of his sympathies was not confined to jim crowism but expressed a nativism that attacked all carriers and representatives of foreign entanglements—Jews, Catholics, recent immigrants, and various stripes of internationalism. He encouraged the revived Ku Klux Klan, and his editorials in the Leo Frank case contributed to that Atlanta Jewish plant manager’s lynching in 1915.

True to his Jeffersonian and isolationist ideals, Watson strenuously opposed American entry into World War I and restrictions on civil liberties during it—views that led to a Post Office ban on mailing his magazine, Watson’s Jeffersonian. After the war he opposed U.S. entry into the League of Nations. He died in 1922, a first-term Democratic U.S. senator from Georgia.

In more than 30,000 pages, Watson’s papers amply reflect the breadth of his impact. There is his nationwide correspondence with fellow Populists and others, including many of the impoverished white farmers who made up his core constituency. His productions as a writer of fiction and history are here, including drafts of his autobiographical novel, Bethany, a Story of the Old South, his biographies of Napoleon and Andrew Jackson, and his popular history of France. Press coverage of his career is preserved in voluminous scrapbooks. The collection also preserves many of the ephemera of the Populist movement.

Accompanying the collection is a printed guide that allows researchers easy access to individual files. It includes an index to major subjects and names as well as a reel guide.
