The Wisdom of Henry Ford
American Dissident Voices
25th September, 1993

An outstanding figure in the story of modern America, andcentral to the struggle of American patriots to take our country back, was thegreat industrialist and humanitarian Henry Ford, Sr.

Ford was born in 1863, a farm boy from rural Michigan wholoved to do mechanical work with his hands and experiment with new concepts inhis shop. He was a deeply moral man, to whom honesty, work, and sobriety weresacred concepts.. And he was a gentle man, in the true sense of the word, who,in the words of writer Albert Lee, 'shared a love of all living thingswith naturalist John Burroughs and who shared campfires with his friend ThomasEdison. Ford was known to 'nail up a door for a whole season rather thandisturb a robin's nest,' and he 'postponed [a] hay harvest because ground birdswere brooding in the field.' He was a man of peace, saying ... that he wouldgive his entire fortune if he could shorten [World War I] by a singleday.'

Marxists hate Henry Ford. But most of the workers in hisfactories loved and revered him. In fact, it would not be an exaggeration tosay that when Henry Ford began his seven-year long, 5 million dollar'lesson to the American people' in 1920, he was probably thebest-loved living American.

He did not invent the automobile, but he was one of itspioneers. His inborn genius for innovation and efficiency enabled him toproduce the first car for the common man, the Model T. Before Ford, cars weremostly playthings of the wealthy. The Model T began its production run in 1908and was not replaced until 1927. As Ford increased the efficiency of hisplants, instead of pocketing the profits, he constantly lowered the price,which ultimately fell from $590 to $260. And he astounded the world in 1914when he ordered the minimum wage paid to even the lowliest Ford employee to beraised to $5 per day, at a time when the average wage to the skilled workers ofhis competitors was far less than half that amount. He began one of the firstprofit-sharing plans, distributing $12 million to his employees in the firstyear alone. He caused jaws to drop again when, believing that useful knowledgeshould be used for the benefit of the people, he gave up millions by making allFord patents free to everyone. He led a successful one-man crusade against the'Selden patent,' benefiting his competitors as much as he.

Much is known about Henry Ford. A recent series of FordMotor Company TV advertisements even features his face and quotes some of hisstatements as 'words to live by.' So why am I speaking of him on thisprogram which is usually devoted to the hidden aspects of politics and history?Because what is not so well known today is that Henry Ford devoted years of hislife and a substantial part of his fortune to awakening the American people tothe enemies of our nation. You see, the movement to free America fromInternationalist domination did not begin with the Chuck Harders and TomValentines or other Johnny-come-latelys. It certainly didn't begin with me,either, though I think it is becoming clearer with every passing day thatAmerican Dissident Voices alone dares to tell our listeners the whole truthabout our nation's plight.

In 1916 Ford led an ill-fated mission to stop the slaughterof World War I. He assembled a disparate coalition of clergymen, writers,politicians, pacifists, and businessmen, chartered the Norwegian ocean linerOscar II and sailed for Europe in hopes of inspiring the neutral powers tomediate a peace treaty. His coalition squabbled among themselves, and theforces for war proved too strong. Ford returned to America a somewhatdiscouraged but wiser man. He never lost his distaste for foreign wars,however, and spoke out against them and the hidden forces that foment them inno uncertain terms.

Mme. Rosika Schwimmer, one of the leaders of the Peace Shipproject, was a Jewish diplomat and pacifist who, according to Ford, had moreintelligence than all of the others aboard the ship put together. She tells thestory of her first meeting with Ford, where he said, 'I know who startedthis war - the German-Jewish bankers.' As he slapped some papers hidden inpocket of his coat, he said, 'I have the evidence here - facts! I can'tgive them out yet because I haven't got them all. I'll have them soon!'
In an interview with a New York Times reporter onChristmas, 1921, Ford gave some further insight into his education in the waysof the world while he was on the Peace Ship. 'It was the Jews themselveswho convinced me of the direct relationship between the international Jew andwar. In fact, they went out of their way to convince me. On the peace ship weretwo very prominent Jews. We had not been at sea 200 miles before they begantelling me of the power of the Jewish race, of how they controlled the worldthrough their control of gold, and that the Jew and no one but the Jew couldend the war. I was reluctant to believe it but they went into detail toconvince me of the means by which the Jews controlled the war, how they had themoney, how they had cornered all the basic materials needed to fight the warand all that, and they talked so long and so well that they convinced me. Theysaid, and they believed, that the Jews started the war, that they wouldcontinue it as long as they wished, and that until the Jew stopped the war itcould not be stopped. I was so disgusted I would have liked to turn the shipback.'

A Book for All Americans

Ford had becomeconvinced that there was an organized, dangerous, largely secret, andincredibly powerful menace to America, almost completely Jewish at its highestlevels, and he was determined to do something about it. He earnestly believedthat if this menace was exposed to the light of day, that responsible and moralJews would cast out this cancerous group from their midst. He was honestlysurprised by the abuse he received from most of his Jewish friends and businessassociates after his educational work had begun, and we may be amazed by thefact that a few remained cordial. Henry Ford believed that if the kept presswould not tell the truth on what he termed the Jewish Question, they it was hisduty to his God and his country to do it himself.

He purchased whatwas at the time a small weekly newspaper in his home town in Michigan, TheDearborn Independent, and turned into his national voice, with nationwidedistribution. His espousal of traditional values combined with a practicalpopulism struck a chord with many Americans, for soon the sleepy weekly hadturned into an influential giant, with a circulation at one point of nearlyhalf a million. Ford lost money on the paper, selling it for five cents per copyor one dollar a year. When Jewish censorship kept it off the newsstands in somecities, he made it available through the local Ford agencies.. He neithersolicited nor accepted advertising - he would not have the paper subject toJewish or any outside influence. The masthead meant what it said - Independent.

He gathered aroundhim some of the most talented writers and researchers in the business,virtually cleaning out the editorial staff of the largest newspaper in thestate, the Detroit News. He hired the best private investigators. He employedthe services of patriotic Congressmen and diplomats. He dispatched his agentsto foreign countries to dig up the facts.

1920 marked thebeginning of the publication, in serial form, of Henry Ford's research series inthe Dearborn Independent. Each week, the paper carried a major story exposingan aspect of Jewish power and influence. One of the men Ford had hired awayfrom the Detroit News, who would eventually become the head of the Independent,was the brilliant editor and columnist William J. Cameron. Cameron at firstprotested bitterly at the subject matter of the articles on the Jewish Questionand almost bolted with a few other staffers who didn't want to touch this'forbidden' subject, but as the evidence began piling up, he becameconvinced that Ford was right. He was the author of most of the Independent'sarticles in this series, and stayed with Ford for the next 20 years. Thesearticles would eventually be collected in book form under the title The InternationalJew. The articles were a sensation and the book became a nationwide success, infact one of the greatest best-sellers of all time.

While Ford'seducational series on Jewish power was running, the Independent had acirculation of between a quarter million and a half million copies per week.When the articles were reprinted in book form, eventually to fill four volumes,it was not unusual for each press run, of which there were many for eachvolume, to total over 200,000 copies. It is estimated that more than 10 millioncopies of the book were sold in the United States alone. The International Jewwas translated into sixteen languages, including Arabic, and was distributed bythe millions in Europe, South America, and the Middle East. Each of the 4 volumeswas a full-sized book of about 250 pages, and was sold for a mere 25 cents.Ford lost nearly five million dollars on this venture, and that doesn't countthe losses to his business due to several Jewish boycotts and lawsuits.

To evaluate thetenor of Ford's lessons to the American people, let us look at a few passagesfrom his preface to the first volume:

'Why discussthe Jewish Question? Because it is here, and because its emergence intoAmerican thought should contribute to its solution, and not to a continuance ofthose bad conditions which surround the Question in other countries.

'The JewishQuestion has existed in the United States for a long time. Jews themselves haveknown this, even if Gentiles have not. There have been periods in our owncountry when it has broken forth with a sullen sort of strength  which presaged darker things to come. Manysigns portend that it is approaching an acute stage.

'Not onlydoes the Jewish Question touch those matters that are of common knowledge, suchas financial and commercial control, usurpation of political power, monopoly ofnecessities, and autocratic direction of the very news that the American peopleread; but it reaches into cultural regions and so touches the very heart ofAmerican life.

' It isinterwoven with much of the menace of organised and calculated disorder whichtroubles the nations today. It is not of recent growth, but its roots go deep.”The motive of this work is simply a desire to make facts known to the people.Other motives have, of course, been ascribed to it. But the motive of prejudiceor any form of antagonism is hardly strong enough to support such aninvestigation as this. Moreover, had an unworthy motive existed, some sign ofit would inevitably appear in the work. We confidently call the reader to witness that the tone of thesearticles is all that it should be.. The International Jew and his satellites, asthe conscious enemies of all that Anglo-Saxons mean by civilization, are notspared, nor is that unthinking mass which defends anything that a Jew does,simply because it has been taught to believe that what Jewish leaders do isJewish. Neither do these articles proceed upon a false emotion of brotherhoodand apology, as if this stream of doubtful tendency in the world were only accidentallyJewish. We give the facts as we find them; that of itself is sufficientprotection against prejudice or passion.'

A few of thearticles' titles should give you an idea of the information in the book:

Jewish History inthe United States - Does a Definite Jewish Program Exist? - The Historic Basisof Jewish Imperialism - Does Jewish Power Control the World Press? - TheAll-Jewish Mark on 'Red Russia' - Jewish Testimony in Favor ofBolshevism - How Jews in the US Conceal Their Strength - Jewish Control of theAmerican Theater - Jewish Supremacy in the Motion Picture World - 'JewishRights' Clash With American Rights - Jewish Degradation of AmericanBaseball - Jewish Jazz Becomes Our National Music - Jewish Hot-Beds ofBolshevism in the US - Dr. Levy, a Jew, Admits His People's Error - TheGigantic Jewish Liquor Trust and Its Career - The Jews' Complaint Against'Americanism' - The Gentle Art of Changing Jewish Names -- and dozensof others, a total of eighty articles in all.

Neither TheInternational Jew nor Henry Ford were perfect. Ford and Cameron reflected theprejudices of their times when they took irrelevant stabs at Darwin andNietzsche. They were sometimes too eager to accept quotes and documents fromdubious sources, when much stronger documentation on the same points wasalready available. And when tremendous financial pressure was brought to bear,and when a mysterious automobile accident sent Ford to the hospital, nearlymissing killing him, he did cave in to the pressure and direct one of hissubordinates to sign the phony apology written for the purpose by prominentJewish attorney Louis Marshall. His post-apology actions indicate that Ford hadnot altered his opinions. Despite its few flaws, though, the book is amagnificent piece of work, a priceless distillation of many thousands ofman-hours of expensive research and compilation, a magnifying glass applied tothe hidden sources of immorality, vice, degeneracy, and subversion.

The InternationalJew was available in libraries and bookstores across America. As I've alreadypointed out, it was one of the biggest best sellers of all time. Henry Fordfelt that his book was so important that at one point a copy was presented toall purchasers of new Ford automobiles. Yet today this book is almostimpossible to find. You will not be able to buy it in your local bookstore, norcheck it out at your local library. If it were not for a few courageousAmericans keeping it in print and available to you, you would not be able tofind it at all.

The truth is thathere in so-called 'democratic, pluralist' America this book has beennakedly suppressed. Is it because this book is a hate-filled anti-Jewishpolemic? No, not at all. The book's tone is not at all anti-Jewish, and againand again it appeals to the reason and moral sense of its Jewish readers to puta stop to the abuses of their leaders. It is scrupulously fair, even-handed,and factual. It is because of its extensive documentation and the unassailablefacts which it presents that it has been suppressed. For The International Jewis a threat - it's a threat to those men of money and power who would put asack over our heads and force us unknowingly and unwillingly into the 'NewWorld Order' they have been preparing for us for decades. This book is a threatto those who would take away our weapons of self-defense, and who would takeaway our freedom and our children's future.
