THE PARIS HOUSE.
James Rothschild was not commissioned to start a Branch of the Rothschild house at once; he was sent secretly from Frankfort to Paris to collect coin to aid the Duke of Wellington in his expected advance from Spain through southern France (B, Vol. X., p. 494), a proceeding which of course was an example of the utmost duplicity and treachery to the nation which he afterwards came to control.
He received bullion sent from England by his brother Nathan, importing it at Dunkirk, passing it through to Paris and exchanging it there for paper of Paris Banks which was then sent on to Wellington in Spain to cash with Spanish and other banks as requisite. James also smuggled French bullion to Holland, whence it was shipped to Wellington’s headquarters.
The reader will be surprised, perhaps, that such work was possible under the eyes and nose of Napoleon. Actually, Napoleon’s Marshal Davoust, Military Governor of Hamburg, acting on the advice of his police, warned him against the activities of the Rothschild family, whilst the Paris Prefect of Police advised the arrest of James Rothschild himself. (A, Vol. I., p. 137-9). The Police Commissioner at Mainz reported also the intimate relations of Amschel Rothschild with Dalberg, Napoleon’s representative at Frankfort, already described (see p. 10).
How was it then that James Rothschild was not arrested and executed as a spy by Napoleon?
It is all very simple and Rothschildian. The fact is that the French Finance Minister, Count von Mollien, found that James Rothschild’s advice and early reports of events, to say nothing of the frequency with which von Mollien found it convenient to get Rothschild to execute commissions for him, made James’s arrest inadvisable! (A, Vol. I., p. 139). In other words, James was “following in father’s footsteps” by sweetening the officials of Napoleon; he could defy arrest.
At last, in 1817, the Paris Rothschild offices were opened.
In 1822, James was made Austrian Consul-General in Paris. This of course was done through the influence of his brother Solomon over Metternich in Vienna (see Chapter IV.) He became an Austrian Baron together with his brothers. James flourished under the Bourbon rule, assisting the French kingdom with loans and financial advice.
But he kept open a line of retreat. When the dynastic Bourbons were expelled by the Revolution of 1830, Rothschild was only a temporary loser, because he had long ago wormed himself by monetary assistance into the favour of Louis Philippe, Duke of Orleans, who then came to the throne.
By 1832, therefore, James had weathered the crisis, and was again in full favour of a French King. Louis Philippe made James his adviser, although Thiers, his Minister, did not like it; but Thiers himself owed money to Rothschild so his opposition was feeble!
When Thiers wished to help Mehmet Ali in Egypt, and Rothschild advised the opposite course, it was Thiers who had to resign! This was in 1840, and very recently Moses Montefiore had been to visit Mehmet Ali and the Sultan of Turkey with huge bribes which effected the release (without re-trial) of a number of Jews condemned for a frightful ritual murder of a French priest at Damascus, and obtained favours for Jews under Turkish rule.
James Rothschild was now the great power in Paris. Metternich wrote in 1845 (A, Vol. II., p. 245) “By reason of natural (sic!) causes which I cannot regard as good or as moral, the House of Rothschild is a much more important influence in French affairs than the Foreign Office of any country, except perhaps England. The great motive force is their money. People who hope for philanthropy, and who have to suppress all criticism under the weight of gold, need a great deal of it. The fact of corruption ~ that practical element, in the fullest sense of the word ~ in the modern representative system, is recognized quite openly.”
The German Minister in Paris, Von Arnim, whom Disraeli stated to be a Jew (Coningsby, Book IV., Chapter XV.), suggested that few Governments were in a position to say that they did not bear the golden chains of the House of Rothschild (A, Vol. II., p. 246, quoting from Gesichte Frankreichs, Hillebrand II., 646). Think, reader, what that meant.
It is part of the Jewish scheme to control all political movements, if they can, not excluding Fascism.In 1935, Col. de la Rocque started a “patriotic” movement in France called the Croix de Feu and it had endless funds which secured it a large following; its first charitable function was held in the grounds of a Rothschild mansion! Jews were taken in as members of this precious organization, and it published its policy in a book The Fiery Cross in which it poured odium and ridicule upon the German Nazis and described Bolshevism without any mention that both its origin and establishment are Jewish. This “Fascist” movement had a Jew Carvalho as Secretary and a Jew Wormser as Financial Adviser.
Fascists should be careful to make sure that their leaders are clear of all Jewish and Masonic influence.
Never mind what they say.Find out what they are.
Alphonse Rothschild died in 1905, and his son, Edouard, took over the Paris business house.
The real Government of France is not a democracy; “R.F.” does not really mean Republique Francaise, but Rothschild Freres.
It is of great interest to note that on 5th Oct., 1935, when Italy was attacking Abyssinia, both the Daily Telegraph and the Financial Times reported that a loan, one-third from the Rothschilds, of eight million pounds had been granted to the Credit Italiano Bank; this was denied two weeks later! But on 21st Oct., the Internationale Presse Agentur stated that the French House of Rothschild had given Italy a credit of 750 million francs.
No wonder Britain could not get France to apply “sanctions” against Italy under the Covenant of the League of Nations! Baron Franchetti, the chief “Italian” expert on Abyssinia, who was killed in an aeroplane accident on his way there, was the grandson of Wilhelm Rothschild!
It is also worthy of report that Baron Maurice Rothschild was at Geneva during the League of Nations sanctions conference, and the Daily Express, 14th October, published a photograph of him chatting with the President of the Committee after the final meeting of the conference.
Henri Rothschild, a grandson of the Nathaniel who was the son of Nathan, lives in Paris and is a playwright, his pen-name being Andre Pascal.
