And of course Mullins was apparently a good friend to Ezra Pound:

[from Wikipedia] In the late 1940s, when the poet Ezra Pound was incarcerated 
in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital on treason charges against the US, he corresponded 
with Mullins. In their correspondence, Mullins exclaimed "THE JEWS ARE 
BETRAYING US", in a letter written on Aryan League of America stationery. The 
two became friends and Mullins often visited the poet while he was 
detained.[16] In his "Foreword" to The Secrets of the Federal Reserve Mullins 
explains the circumstances by which he came to write his investigation into the 
origins of the Federal Reserve System: "In 1949, while I was visiting Ezra 
Pound ... [he] asked me if I had ever heard of the Federal Reserve System. I 
replied that I had not, as of the age of 25. He then showed me a ten dollar 
bill marked "Federal Reserve Note" and asked me if I would do some research at 
the Library of Congress on the Federal Reserve System which had issued this 

“Mullins told Pound that he had little interest in such a research project 
because he was working on a novel. "My initial research" wrote Mullins, 
"revealed evidence of an international banking group which had secretly planned 
the writing of the Federal Reserve Act and Congress’ enactment of the plan into 
law. These findings confirmed what Pound had long suspected. He said, "You must 
work on it as a detective story."[16]

“Mullins completed the manuscript during the course of 1950 when he began to 
seek a publisher. Eighteen publishers turned the book down without comment 
before the President of the Devin-Adair Publishing Company, Devin Garrett, told 
him, "I like your book but we can't print it...Neither can anybody else in New 
York. You may as well forget about getting the [...] book published."[16]

“Eventually the book was published by two other men who visited Pound during 
that period, John Kasper and David Horton, under the title Mullins on the 
Federal Reserve.

“In Mullins on the Federal Reserve (1952), (the updated edition published in 
1983 was called Secrets of the Federal Reserve) Mullins argued that there was a 
conspiracy among Paul Warburg, Edward Mandell House, Woodrow Wilson, J.P. 
Morgan, Benjamin Strong, Otto Kahn, the Rockefeller family, the Rothschild 
family, and other European and American bankers which resulted in the founding 
of the U.S. Federal Reserve System. He argued that the Federal Reserve Act of 
1913 defies Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 5 of the United States Constitution 
by creating a "central bank of issue" for the United States. Mullins went on to 
claim that World War I, the Agricultural Depression of 1920, the Great 
Depression of 1929 were brought about by international banking interests in 
order to profit from conflict and economic instability. Mullins also cited 
Thomas Jefferson's staunch opposition to the establishment of a central bank in 
the United States.”

Ezra Pound has been an ongoing puzzle to me.  He influenced a number of poets 
during his era, but he strikes me as the poetic equivalent of Heidegger.  His 
writing is so difficult and obfuscated that any critic who masters it is proud 
of his achievement and unwilling to denounce it as being of poor quality.  
Pound’s economic theories as discussed in the biographies I’ve read were 
considered a sign of his advancing madness.

As to the Jews, I was once in a [Christian] Bible Study attended by a Jew named 
Al who complained that with the ongoing belief in Jews capturing the wealth of 
the world and being secretly influential, why could he never cash in on that 
(apparently he would have if he could have)?  He didn’t have any relatives who 
were rich or powerful.  He himself worked in the produce department of a 
supermarket.  It was a great mystery to him.

If you want to read an intelligent anti-Semite try Eustace Mullins, the Secret 
History of the Jews.

Well, I am not sure why this is posted as something worthy of attention, but 
since it is...

1. The Jews in the early 20. century did not have a 'land', at least not in the 
sense of nation-state, but they had a tradition. That tradition makes claims 
about their history that are probably largely false - for example, extensive 
archaelogical excavations at Jerusalem have failed to turn up the supposed city 
of David and Solomon - but tradition they had. They also had several languages 
of their own.

2. Genetical studies of Ashkenazi Jews have shown a fair amount of genetic 
uniformity among them, probably not less than most modern nations have.

3. Until relatively recent times, the Jews were not particularly 
technologically advanced. The most technologically advanced civilization on the 
Earth until the 17th century (if not later) was China, which didn't have too 
many Jews.

4. The Jews in late medieval Europe onward were connected with banking, but 
this wasn't so much for reasons of culture or lack of it. The main reason is 
that they were barred from possessing land in most medieval European states 
(excepting Poland where they engaged in agricultural occupations) and often 
also from artisan occupations (by the guilds; in Ottoman empire, they worked as 
artisans).True, it helped that the Jewish religion did not prohibit usury while 
medieval Christianity attempted to prohibit it, although the Catholic Venice, 
Florence, and Genoa had bankers.

Thus, Heigger's premises are largely false, although even if they were true 
this would not in any way warrant the conclusion.

The link (above this line) was provided to me by colleagues. It gives the 
article, in the English version, detailing how the self styled philosopher of 
“being” and authetincity was starkly anti-Semitic. What is interesting about 
the issue is not that yet another Nazi semi criminal is exposed, after a 
century from the fact, nearly a century. What is interesting is that this 
“Heidegger” has an argument. It goes as follows: to be able to reach ‘being’ 
[don’t ask why anyone should reach a verb or be exposed to a verb etc.] one 
needs a specified grounding.

Step 1 the grounding is given by the Blut und Boden, the land, the tradition, 
even more weirdly by a “language” (he calls language something like his 
idiolect of Germanic descent, Greek is a language, nobody knows why but 
Mongolian does not qualify, nor it can be a vehicle of thought since thought is 
reserved for the master race)

Step 2: the jews have no such thing (well, at that time there was no Eretz 
Israel as nation-state in the tradition of political philosophy, there were 5 
jewish languages, the religious jews always claimed that they had a land, it 
was given to them by GD etc. cfr Abraham in the “bible” and so forth, but skip, 
the idea that there is a truth escapes the buffoon in lederhosen since “truth” 
is revealed in the wood, “aletheia” and all of that)

Step3 since the jews have no tradition in the relevant sense, they “do” 
techniques (of dentistry, banking, some even films and music, not to mention 
chemistry and physics)

Step 4 the duder “knows” in his perverted brain that “technique” is not a 
technique, it is a Gestell “ a systemic state of mind”

Step 5 MH concludes glibly that “Technkik” killed the jews (Zyklon, machine 
guns, showers that boil people to death, etc.)

Step 6 and, then it is clear that “jews self-annihilated

Honest colleagues that do not suffer the bizarre condition of “transfert” (term 
adopted by Miller, French psychoanalyst who describe the interest and 
fascination with MH as sexual in nature, in the form in which S. Freud 
predicted) are invited to look at vol 97 of the “works” by this Heidegger, 
available as of today.
