    Morgan

    It was to be secretly financed and organized by leading officers of the Morgan and Du Pont empires. This included some of America's richest and most famous names of the time:

    Irenee DuPont - Right-wing chemical industrialist and founder of the American Liberty League, the organization assigned to execute the plot.

    Grayson Murphy - Director of Goodyear, Bethlehem Steel and a group of J. P. Morgan banks.

    William Doyle - Former state commander of the American Legion and a central plotter of the coup.

    John W. Davis - A senior attorney for the very rich and very powerful banker J. P. Morgan and the 1924 Democratic candidate for the presidency.

    Al Smith - Al Smith had been a good friend of Roosevelt's and his predecessor as governor of New York. But after his failed run for the presidency, for which he had twice been nominated by F.D.R. (in 1924 & 1928), he became a bitter enemy of F.D.R. , when he lost the nomination to him in 1932. Smith then became as far right as he had been far left, a codirector of the American Liberty League ( of the "filthy rich").

    John J. Raskob - A high-ranking Du Pont officer and a former chairman of the Democratic Party, prior to F.D.R. In later decades, Raskob would become a 'Knight of Malta,' a Roman Catholic Religious Order with a high percentage of CIA spies, including CIA Directors William Casey, William Colby and John McCone.

    See much more at "Knights of Malta,"

    Robert Clark - One of Wall Street's richest bankers and stockbrokers.

    Gerald MacGuire - Bond salesman for Clark, and a former commander of the Connecticut American Legion. MacGuire was the key recruiter to General Butler.

    most likely all of them, only now they have the white house, General Butler, tried to stop the fascists but....like Jefferson said,"Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains."
