FDR Cancer Cover-Up

Email Print

This Slate.com article purports to uncover a shocking sixty-five year old medical cover-up by FDR’s primary physician, Dr. Howard G. Bruenn, concerning cancerous melanoma as the principal cause of death of the president.  Actually as with many such items “discovered” by the historically clueless mainstream media, this is very old news.  In 1948, the celebrated Doctor Emanuel M. Josephson wrote The Strange Death of Franklin D. Roosevelt:  A History of the Roosevelt-Delano Dynasty — America’s Royal Family, where he outlined such a scenario (with a surprising twist).  Josephson was a great independent researcher and anti-establishment muckraker.  He was a particular favorite of Murray Rothbard for his utilization of an early primitive version of power elite analysis (e. g., see “Only One Heartbeat Away” in the September 1974 edition of The Libertarian Forum).  Josephson was a sworn enemy of the Morgans, the Rockefellers, FDR and the New Deal, the Communists, the Nazis, the Socialists, the Fascists, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Fed. He traced the origins of what Rothbard later dubbed “the welfare-warfare state” to Bismarck.  FDR was gravely ill the last two years of his life.  His duplicity regarding his medical condition was engineered for his 1944 run for the office he had held since 1933.  We now know that if Roosevelt had died in 1943 or 1944 (which was not out of the range of probability) his controversial vice president Henry Wallace had already prepared a tentative cabinet, choosing for secretary of state Lawrence Duggin, and Harry Dexter White (co-architect with John Maynard Keynes of the Bretton Woods monetary regime) for treasury secretary.  Both Duggin and White were later revealed as Soviet espionage agents, two of the hundreds unearthed working for Stalin during the New Deal/WWII years.
