A lot of fascinating research examines how socialism has been influenced by America and Americans. Many authors continue to worry about the potential for a future filled with persecution and global socialism. Those worries have relevance to the enormous size and scope of government in the USA and its growing police state.

National socialism was specifically promoted in the USA in 1888 by Edward Bellamy, author of the book "Looking Backward from 2000 to 1887."  The book was an international bestseller and was tranlsated into every major language including German, Russian and Chinese. It appears by title in many of the major Marxist writings of the day. Clubs sprang up in the USA and worldwide for touting the book's ideas. The Bellamy dogma influenced socialists worldwide, including the countries of the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 65 million dead under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 49 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSGWP). 

The early Pledge of Allegiance to the U.S. flag (1892 to 1945) was the origin of the straight-arm salute used later by the NSGWP as discovered by the historian Dr. Rex Curry, author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets." Shocking photos are on the web.

The pledge was written by Francis Bellamy, cousin and cohort to Edward. The pledge was created to promote their national socialism in the most socialistic institution: government schools (socialized schools). They wanted government to take over all schools and create the "industrial army" from children to spread "military socialism."

In time the straight-arm salute was used for various purposes in the United States, including the National Anthem (the Star Spangled Banner), for school flags, and even as a general greeting or cheer during sports events (including college football games).

The National Socialist German Workers' Party acquired the straight-arm salute from America (American films) and from German-Americans (such as Ernst Hanfstaengl).

In 1936, Berlin hosted the Olympic Games, where American athletes continued to demonstrate the straight-arm salute to the US flag during the National Anthem in awards ceremonies.

Stanley McClatchie was at the Olympics in Germany and he saw American athletes perform America's straight-arm salute while there. McClatchie then wrote "Look to Germany" and it was published (1937) in Germany by Heinrich Hoffman, the photographer for the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. McClatchie was an American and he knew that Americans used the striaght-arm salute to the U.S. flag. In the book, McClatchie wrote "The German flag? What does it look like? The majority of foreigners know that it contains a swastika and believe that this signifies only - “National...ism.” The flag bearers? Who are they? The world regards their disciplined ranks, the brown uniforms and reflects - “National...ism.”  It is time, however, to wake up! SOCIALISM is the principle word in the title of the Movement. The basic colour in its banner is RED and those who wear the brown uniforms are COMRADES!"  McClatchie's book glorifies German National Socialism and approvingly quotes another American who was at the German Olympic Games, "And as for this man, [the NSGWP leader]...Well, I believe we should all like to take him back to America with us and have him organize things there just as he has done in Germany."

Hitler’s second book is a frightening review of the dogma that motivated the leader of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, and how he was influenced by American National Socialists.

In Mein Kampf, Hitler hardly mentioned the United States. By contrast, in Zweites Buch, Hitler portrayed the U.S. as a “racially successful” society that practices segregation and eugenics.  It is what Hitler considered to be a wise policy of excluding “racially degenerate” immigration from eastern and southern Europe. The cause of Hitler's views from 1924 and 1928 is clear. Hitler might have known about U.S. Immigration Control Act of 1924, and become more aware of segregation, and of the fact that American socialists had supported several American states in creating eugenics boards to sterilize what were considered to be the mentally defective and was favorably impressed. Hitler proclaimed his admiration for these sort of policies and expresses the wish that Germany would do similar things, though on a much greater scale.

The U.S. still follows the same anti libertarian policies that influence German socialists.  Those immigration laws still exist in the U.S.  The government still owns and operates schools. And the U.S. practice of imposing segregation by law in government schools and teaching racism as official policy even outlasted the German socialists by over 15 years. After segregation in government's schools ended, the Bellamy legacy caused more police-state racism of forced busing that destroyed communities and neighborhoods and deepened hostilities. Those schools still exist.  Infants are given social security numbers and those schools demand the numbers to enroll. The Pledge still exists along with laws mandating that teachers lead the robotic  pledge chanting every day for twelve years of each child’s life.  

American national socialists had been very influential upon the socialist path of government in the United States, and it had ominous parallels with German national socialism.   Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and Edward Bellamy (author of the novel "Looking Backward") and Charles Bellamy (author of "A Moment of Madness") and Frederick Bellamy (who introduced Edward to socialistic "Fourierism") were socialists.  Edward, Charles and Frederick were brothers, and Francis was their cousin. Francis and Edward were both self-proclaimed National Socialists and they supported the "Nationalism" movement in the USA, the "Nationalist" magazine, and the "Nationalist Educational Association." They wanted all of society to ape the military and they touted "military socialism" and the "industrial army."  Edward inspired the "Nationalist Party" (in the USA) and their dogma influenced socialists worldwide (including Germany) via “Nationalist Clubs.”

In the USA, the Bellamy dogma supported a government takeover of education.  When the government granted the Bellamy wish, the government's schools imposed segregation by law and taught racism as official policy.  The USA's behavior was an example for three decades before the Nazis. As under Nazism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, and blacks and the Jewish and others in the USA attended government schools that dictated segregation, taught racism, and persecuted children who refused to perform the straight-arm salute and robotically chant the Pledge. Some kids were expelled from government schools and had to use the many better alternatives.  There were acts of violence. When Jesse Owens competed in the 1936 Olympics in Germany, his neighbors attended segregated government schools where they saluted the flag with the Nazi salute.

Dr. Rex Curry showed that the USA's early Pledge of Allegiance (to the flag) used a straight-arm salute and it was the origin of the salute of the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis). Dr. Curry helped to establish that it was not an ancient Roman salute, and that the "ancient Roman salute" is a myth.  The myth is still repeated in modern efforts to cover-up Dr. Curry's discoveries about the Pledge's poisonous pedigree.

The original Pledge began with a military salute that then stretched out toward the flag. Historic photographs are at and at   In actual use, the second part of the gesture was performed with a straight arm and palm down by children extending the military salute while perfunctorily performing the forced ritual chanting.  Professor Curry showed that, due to the way that both gestures were used sequentially in the pledge, the military salute led to the Nazi salute. The Nazi salute is an extended military salute via the pledge.

 The Pledge was the origin of the Nazi salute. "Nazi" means "National Socialist German Workers' Party." A mnemonic device is the swastika. Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, Professor Curry discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism."  Curry changed the way that people view the symbol of the horrid National Socialist German Workers' Party. Hitler altered his own signature to use the same stylized "S" letter for "socialist" and similar alphabetic symbolism still shows on Volkswagens.

Only two copies of the 200 page manuscript were originally made, and only one of these has ever been made public. Zweites Buch was not published in 1928 because Mein Kampf was not selling well. The authenticity of the book has been verified by Josef Berg, a former employee of the Nazi publishing house Eher Verlag and Telford Taylor the former Brigadier General U.S.A.R., and Chief Counsel at the Nuremburg war-crimes trials. The book remains known as "Zweites Buch" translated as "Second Book." The Zweites Buch was first discovered in the Nazi archives being held in the United States by the German-born American historian Gerhard Weinberg in 1958. Unable to find an American publisher, Weinberg turned to his mentor Hans Rothfels and his associate Martin Broszat at the Institute of Contemporary History in Munich, who published Zweites Buch in 1961 in German. A pirated edition was translated into English and published in New York in 1962. The first authoritative English edition was not published until 2003. Hitler's Second Book: The Unpublished Sequel to Mein Kampf, ISBN 1929631162.

It is no surprise that the stiff-arm salute used in Germany was borrowed from the United States. Adolf Hitler paid much attention to activity in the United States. His book Mein Kampf makes repeated references to the American situation.

When the first English-language edition of Mein Kampf was later published in the United States, the editors inserted a footnote after the book's brief reference to Henry Ford: "These reflections are copied, for the most part, from the Dearborn Independent, Mr. Henry Ford's newspaper." The footnote went on to explain that the propaganda once disseminated by Ford's journal "is still current in Germany."

The only American named in Mein Kampf is Henry Ford. Part of that mention states: "one great man, Ford, to their exasperation, still holds out independently there even now."

According to the book "The American Axis: Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, and the Rise of the Third Reich" (by Max Wallace - 2004) Ford's ideas imbue the entire book, Mein Kampf. Entire passages and numerous ideas are actually lifted verbatim from the pages of Ford's most notorious book.

In comparison, the stiff-arm salute had been compelled during the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag" in government schools in the United States from 1892, three decades before the creation of the National Socialist German Workers Party.

When the government took over schools, it imposed segregation by law, and taught racism as official policy. In segregated classrooms, children were forced to perform the stiff-arm salute and robotic chanting to the flag en masse.

German socialist dogma is the same dogma that was touted in the late 19th century by National Socialists in the USA. Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance") and his cousin and cohort Edward Bellamy (author of the pathetic book "Looking Backward") wanted the government to take over all schools, food, clothing, shelter, goods and services and create an "industrial army" to impose their "military socialism." See the video documentary at

Edward Bellamy's book was an international bestseller translated into every major language, including German. Edward Bellamy had many German connections.

Edward's career was in writing, he wrote for newspapers, and he published the "New Nation" magazine and the "Nationalist" magazine to promote national socialism.

Francis Bellamy's flag pledge ritual (and its early odd salute) was first published in the Youth's Companion magazine where Francis was a writer. The magazine was one of the most popular magazines of that time.

The Bellamy dogma was the motiviation behind Francis Bellamy's "Pledge of Allegiance" to the flag, the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party (see the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry, author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").

It led to the use of the swastika as S-letters for "socialism" on the flag under German National Socialism.

It is the same dogma that led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~60 million killed under the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; ~20 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

The Pledge of Allegiance has long been exalted as one of the greatest American icons of the twentieth century. Now the noted journalist Dr. Rex Curry uncovers groundbreaking and astonishing revelations about the poisonous effect that so-called heroic ritual had on Western government and how the pledge -an act adopted by the National Socialist German Workers Party - almost brought freedom in Europe to the verge of extinction.

Today, the flag symbolizes authoritarianism in the USA. The historical facts above explain the enormous size and scope of government today, and the USA's police state, and why it is growing so rapidly.  They are reasons for massive reductions in government, taxation, spending and socialism.

With unprecedented access to suppressed photographs and files, Curry reveals how the ideological bond between the Bellamys, the Pledge-supporters and Germans culminated in an abuse of power that helped strengthen the National Socialist German Workers Party.

Devastating, thoroughly researched, and engagingly written, "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets" is not only a mesmerizing, cautionary tale, but a compelling historical exposé.

Help fight the enormous socialism that continues to grow in today's government.

Hitler wanted to dump the name "National Socialist German Workers Party" and use the simpler "Social Revolutionary Party" but by the time he had the power to make the change, it seemed too late.

American reporters broadcasting from Germany before the war were ordered to drop the n-word contraction and always employ "National Socialist" instead. The National Socialists had come to the conclusion that the contraction had a bad sound in America and that getting rid of it would improve their image.


Before WWI, one of America's leading propagandists for government was Edward Bernays. Bernays openly sought to use social psychology, political persuasion and advertising to construct “necessary illusions” which were fed to the masses as “reality.” Bernays described it as “engineering of consent.” The objective for Bernays was to show government, government schools and government-regulated media outlets how to gain control.

Edward Bernays' impact was similar to (and built upon) that of America's most notorious and lasting propagandists for "Military Socialism" and "National Socialism": Edward Bellamy and Francis Bellamy (author of the "Pledge of Allegiance" in 1892). The "Pledge of Allegiance" produced America's stiff-arm salute and robotic chanting to flags in government's schools, where segregation was imposed by law, and racism was taught as official policy. See the video at

In the United States and elsewhere, America's stiff-arm salute began to spread outside of the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag. The gesture was directed toward government officials who were often on stage with the flag at mass meetings where the Pledge was led.

Bellamy's pledge was the origin of the stiff-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers Party, as shown in the work of the symbologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").

By 1915, National Socialism in the USA had inspired propagandistic presentations of the American flag posed favorably with a swastika and the phrase "May our glorious flag and this lucky star guide you and keep you wherever you are."

Another piece of propaganda from the USA bears a swastika and the wording: "Lucky Star - May this emblem protect you well from every bullet, every shell."

In 1917, Edward Bernays and Walter Lippman helped Woodrow Wilson break his campaign promises and con Americans into WWI. To that end they used the Committee on Public Information (CPI ) also known as the Creel Committee. They helped Wilson foment anti-German hate during WWI. Of course, WWI led to WWII and so forth, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

Bernays also created the war slogan “Make the World Safe for Democracy” -a patriotic mantra that many stupid Americans embraced just as they had earlier embraced Bellamy's "Pledge of Allegiance," America's straight-arm gesture, and mechanical chanting to flags in mass and on cue.

Bernays and Bellamy used the technique of manufacturing ever-present dangers and then maintaining a constant state of fear by generating false government pronouncements that endlessly re-stated and exagerated the threat. The modus operandi for Bernays and Bellamy was to give those in power greater control over what Bernay's called "the mass mind."

Bernays’ books "Crystallizing Public Opinion" (1923) and "Propaganda" (1928) impressed Joseph Goebbels, the propaganda minister for the National Socialist German Workers Party. Germany mimicked American behavior because Goebbels learned from the behavior of Bernays, President Wilson, and the U.S. government during World War I.

In 1933, Bernays met Karl von Weigand (a German journalist) who informed Bernays that Goebbels was using Bernays' work for Goebbels' propaganda campaigns fomenting hate, robotic chanting, straight-arm salutes, the use of government schools, children, and more.

Socialists in other countries wanted to know how to brainwash a nation. It was the same brainwashing dogma behind the Wholecaust  (of which the Holocaust was a part): ~20 million dead under the National Socialist German Workers' Party; ~60 million dead under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; ~50 million dead under the Peoples' Republic of China.

"If I approach the masses with reasoned arguments, they will not understand me," Hitler noted in Mein Kampf, "In the mass meeting, their reasoning power is paralysed. What I say is like an order given under hypnosis."

To this day, laws continue to order children to hypnotically chant in the Pledge of Allegiance ritual each morning in many schools in the USA. Only the gesture has changed.

Here is a video example from the World War II era.

Bernays' work continued as one of the engineers of the Cold War.

Early flag ettiquette for men in uniform was to perform the straight-arm salute - not the military salute - when the flag was passing or when the Pledge of Allegiance was being robotically chanted.  That practice lasted as long as 1942 for civilians.

The Sunday Times-Signal in Zanesville, Ohio of August 9, 1942 states, "When the flag is passing in parade or in review, all persons present should face the flag, stand at attention and salute. Those present in uniform should render the right-hand salute." The same article distinguishes the behavior for the actual Pledge of Allegiance by stating that during the pledge, "Persons in uniform shall render the military salute."  A photograph is provided of the right-hand salute showing a stiff arm salute with the palm up. The arm and the palm are so stiff and straight that, at a greater distance, the viewer would have difficulty discerning the direction of the palm.

Several newspapers carried an article similar to the one in the Bismarck Tribune on May 28, 1926.  It states that during the pledge of allegiance "persons in uniform render the right-hand salute."

The Daily Northwestern Newspaper (Thursday Evening) March 8, 1917, explains that the military salute has an outward extension. "Standing- at attention, raise the right hand to the forehead Over the right eye, palm downward, fingers extended and close together, arm at an angle of forty-five degrees. Move hand outward about a foot, with a quick motion,
then drop to the side."

The original Pledge of Allegiance began with military salute that then the arm was extended out toward the flag.  That is how the classic stylized straight-arm salute originated in the USA's pledge.

As consequence, the USA set a bad example for a long time, as the world observed the U.S. military delivering the straight-arm salute to the flag before WWI, during WWI, after WWI, and for up to three decades before the existence of the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

People were persecuted for refusing to pledge or to perform the straight-arm salute to the national flag.  That was to the flag of the USA (the stars and stripes) and of Germany (the swastika flag) as it happened at the same time.  Some religious people considered it sacrilegious. There were good reasons to view the pledge/salute as the worship of government. Most people do not know that a cross was worshiped as the notorious symbol of German National Socialism. The NSGWP called their symbol the Hakenkreuz, not the swastika. Hakenkreuz means "hooked cross." Although the swastika was an ancient symbol, Professor Rex Curry (author of "Swastika Secrets") discovered that it was also used sometimes by German National Socialists to represent "S" letters for their "socialism."  With a 45 degree turn of his Hakenkreuz, the leader of the NSGWP combined the cross with collectivism, merged church and state, meshed religion and socialism, and mandated the worship of government.

The Bellamy desire for government schools (and their use for socialist militarism) was a monstrous example to the world for decades and still is.

Many socialists who adopted the straight-arm salute (e.g. the National Socialist German Workers' Party) later, knew that the salute was being used in government schools in the U.S. to promote the military-socialism complex.

Jewish children were forced to perform the socialist straight-arm salute in government schools in the U.S. long before the National Socialist German Workers' Party existed, and for years thereafter while the horrid party tried to impose socialism everywhere.

Government schools (socialist schools) expelled children who did not perform the original salute and pledge to the U.S. flag.

Bellamy belonged to a group known for "Nationalism," whose members wanted the federal government to nationalize most of the domestic economy. He saw government schools as a means to that end.   It was a view later shared in the military-socialist complex of the socialist trio of atrocities.

In his Pledge of Allegiance, Francis Bellamy is expressing the ideas of his first cousin, Edward Bellamy, author of the American socialist utopian novels, Looking Backward (1888) and Equality (1897).

Bellamy’s “Looking Backward” is about a man who sleeps from 1887 until the year 2000.  The United States has become one giant socialist monopoly (excuse the redundancy). The book openly portrays men treated as military draftees, from the age of twenty-one until the age of forty-five, in the U.S.’s industrial army.  Before the age of twenty-one, men attend one enormous school system of government schools that are an integral part of creating the industrial army in the socialist system. Bellamy’s glorification of the military includes government assignment of all jobs.  Everyone is issued ration cards which are used to draw goods from government storehouses. Everyone is forced to have only the same amount in value annually.

Of course, all of the preceding is portrayed as a dandy utopia just as it was in the military socialist complex of the socialist trio of atrocities and elsewhere. 

The book was translated into 20 foreign languages.  It was popular among the elite in pre-revolutionary Russia, and was even read by Lenin's wife. John Dewey and the historian Charles Beard intended to praise the book by stating that it was matched in influence only by Das Kapital.

Citigroup & Bank of America Nationalized
January 23, 2009 -

The U.S. government's decision to pledge billions of additional dollars with strings attached to Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp. may be nationalization by another name, according to former bankers and regulators.

Faced with pressure from lawmakers, banks have shaken up management, eliminated executive bonuses and staff and canceled conventions. They’ll be forced to do monthly reports on how they’ve boosted lending while slashing quarterly dividends to one cent a share for three years.

“When the Treasury tells a bank to pay a penny a share vs. its old dividend, you know who’s calling the shots,” said Jon Bruss, a 40-year industry veteran and founder of Hartland, Wisconsin-based Fortress Partners Capital Management Ltd., which invests in banks. “It may not be de jure nationalization but I think it’s de facto nationalization.”
