Boston Tea Party Was a Plot by Jewish Merchants to Foment War for Profit (FTN Podcast, Audio + Transcript)


This post first appeared on Truth to Power


In addition to their 'Week in Review' coverage of political news, the FTN team does an amazing job with their so-called 'Deep Dives', in-depth investigations on varied subjects, from historical revisionism to how are dirt poor Latinos getting the money for the expensive journey to the US (you guessed it, 'money-lenders', charging 50% per year.) - and many, many more. It is a hugely valuable archive, available to subscribers.

FTN recently made this episode available to the general public, (it was behind their pay-wall). You can fine the whole thing on their YouTube Channel or at the website.

This episode is one of their most earth-shattering, and sure to be a big draw for anyone interested in US history. Highly recommended. Truth to Power will be bringing you excerpts from this important episode over the coming days.

From the FTN Website:

Jazz, James, and Borzoi dive deep into the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s most astro-turfed founding fathers. Little is known about Hamilton’s early life, which is odd considering his prominent role as a framer of the U.S. Constitution, first Secretary of the Treasury, creator of the nation’s first national bank, the architect of the inherently corrupt system of debt-financed capitalism we are saddled with today, chief author of The Federalist Papers, master of media manipulation, election meddler, and almost but never actually President of the United States.

Rest assured, we thoroughly smash that early life in order to fully understand the identity of the man himself; who he is, where he comes from, what shaped his worldview, and ultimately, in turn, how he shaped the world itself.

Only once one fully understands Hamilton from those perspectives, do the trajectory and context of subsequent historical events, from war to immigration, finance to foreign policy, and from consumerism to vulture capitalism, become crystal clear.

It turns out The Boston Tea Party, one of the most celebrated acts of resistance in the American revolutionary saga, was most probably a plot by Jewish merchants to selfishly foment another war they could profit from (and certainly never fight in).

Typically portrayed as a bold act of rebellion against tyranny by our scrappy colonial ancestors, a more sober look at events seems to paint the Boston Tea Party as a ploy by merchants and smugglers to protect their business interests, while manipulating the good American patriotism of the colonial commoner to do it.

We’ve included a clip where they go over the controversial lesser known details of the event, but we highly recommend you check out the full epdisode. The full episode is now on FTN's YouTube channel, embedded below, and on the FTN website.

Transcript follows below.

About the FTN and TRS podcasts:

FTN and the other podcasts on the TRS podcast platform have become required listening for anyone serious about understanding American politics. In a highly professional and competent manner, they analyze topics, including Jewish influence, that others won't.

The FTN podcast in particular is hard news focused, delivering fresh dissident angles on current events that ruthlessly challenge the mainstream narrative.

Some of their episodes are free to the public, while others are behind a $10 monthly paywall, probably the best value in American journalism today because you get access to several excellent shows for that price. We highly recommend Eric Striker's, (editor of the excellent National Justice website), and Mike Enoch's 'Strike and Mike' (1X per week) which are also more hard news focused. The Daily Shoah with Mike Enoch, Jesse Dunstan, and Alex McNabb, (3X per week), which is a less formal, Joe Rogan style radio talk show, is also excellent.

One of the driving reasons for the Boston Tea Party, which when you ask the average person what was the Boston Tea Party all about, they're going to probably say taxes or something like that. Most people, most Americans don't really understand what the Boston Tea Party was all about. They just have this the popular image on their heads. Oh, the British are exercising these oppressive taxes on us and they're not giving us representation. So we stuck a middle finger to them and threw all the tea in the harbor. That's not really what happened there.

The reason why the Boston Tea Party happened, there's a number of reasons, but a big reason was it threatened to collapse the Dutch smugglers from whom a lot of the colonists did trade and got their tea from, because basically the British East India Company was trying to control that trade of the colonies.

And they were basically kind of creating their own form, their system where they base would have to trade with and buy tea from the bottom The British East India Company and most or not, plenty of colonists preferred to get their tea from Dutch smugglers and because a lot of them were tied in with the trade. If the Dutch smugglers collapsed, their finances would collapse as well. And Hamilton's first political piece was according to his roommate, it was a defense of the Boston Tea Party as necessary.

Now, this is contested as there's no record of it. So there's just references to it, mostly from his roommate. But Hamilton's early injection into the revolution indicate a man willing to play all the angles as the reluctant revolutionary as he also used is positions. He also used his position to soothe the fears of merchants about the destruction of property.

Because when you have this kind of basic understanding of Hamilton, you it seems very counterintuitive that why would he support the Boston Tea Party like he's against all this rabble rousing. He tends to favor power. He tends to have these reactionary tendencies. Why would his first political piece be about supporting the Boston Tea Party?

But then when you realize, like, he's deeply connected with the Dutch and deeply connected other groups of peoples, well, but deeply connected with the Dutch. And he's already learning like you have to be. You know, you have to be able to play all the different angles to get what you want. And this is a theme is going to come time and time again, constantly. When you look at what he was doing during the Revolutionary War, before he could finally actually get power and be able to enact what he wanted to do.

Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, the Boston Tea Party, when you're telling me this, like all the pieces fell into place for me and I was just like. Of course, we were told to believe that the Boston Tea Party was done for your freedoms and your liberty. And the American colonists just weren't going to take it anymore. And, you know, this kind of stuff. And then when you understand that it was to benefit Dutch smugglers and that Alexander Hamilton is out there defending it. And then I'm going to skip ahead to this, because it fits in here and it doesn't really fit in later.

I started, you know, looking at Jewish influence in America. Early American history. And there is this speech that was given by President Calvin Coolidge like 150 years later on in 1925 when they were laying the cornerstone of a Jewish community center. President Coolidge recalling the services of the Jews, the United States in war and peace, from the revolution to the present and the influence of their scriptures in the law, culture and morality of the country since early colonial days declared that Lecce, the Hebraic mortar, cemented the foundations of American democracy.

The reason why I bring this up, the reason why this clicked into place in the vein of the Boston Tea Party. This is the quote from the speech from Coolidge in 1925 where he's thanking these Jews that they're thanking these people for their role in the revolution. And this is when it fell all into place.

"You will recognize them when I read the names of some among the merchants who unhesitatingly signed the non importation resolution of 1765 talking about the tea. Isaac, Moses, Benjamin Leavey, Samsón Leavey, David Franks, going to hear that name again. Joseph Jacobs. Heiman, Leavey, Mathias Bush. Michael GRATs. Benjamin Bernard GRATs, Isaac frex, Moses Mordecai, Benjamin Jacobs, Samuel Lyon and Manual Mordecai Noah."

These these were the people who were signing the Non-importation Agreement. So what does that make the Boston Tea Party? I don't want to like. I have to put a very fine point on this. What does that make the Boston Tea Party? It's one of America's first gay ops. Absolutely what it is.

It's like, let's start a war and kick off a revolution by throwing, all this tea into the harbor. And a lot of the people that dressed up as the Indians and went and threw the tea in the harbor were merchants. What do you think those people were? You think those were the rustic yeomen out in the countryside that came in and these American colonists to start off, you know, get their liberty back from the king? No. Who do you think it was that started all this and who is in the press defending it? Alexander Hamilton. It's crazy.

Yeah. It has to be understood because we as Americans, we are like and I under I understand this impulse. Because I imagine going to a lot of pushback on a lot of this stuff. You have to understand as Americans like, they want us to feel an affinity for these for these events and for these images, because, you know, patriotism is a powerful and beautiful thing. But they can be abused and it can like be lied about. And that's what these people like to do.

It's been good to understand that when you say America first, you're not saying Americans first. That's that's the thing you need to understand. That's the hard I think to me that that's the hardest red pill you have to swallow. America first does not mean Americans first. And that has been the case from the very origins of this country.

Yeah. And all of this stuff has to be re-examined. It all has to be looked at again with a different view and we have a different view. I think this is probably some of the first the first time that this has ever been looked at.
