In it Hull admittedly acknowledged that this was only to be a token investigation because he was “under heavy pressure”.

Schacht’s Trip To America 1933-05-04 1933-05-13

Schacht then President of Reichsbank had come to America to talk to President Roosevelt and the Secretary of State Hull about the current Germany situation. Roosevelt voiced concerns about the Jewish persecution going on in Germany, but was eager to mend economic ties. Also at the meeting Schacht dropped the bomb - Germany was running out of finances and would soon be defaulting on all external loans. Roosevelt’s response was “Serves the Wall Street bankers right!”. Hull was more concerned with this news and the affects that it would have on the depression ravaged American economy.

Schacht also met with President of RCA David Sarnoff and other prominent Jewish group heads including Stephen Wise. Schacht repeated the Nazi rhetoric that what was happening inside of Germany was not the concern of foreigners. The talks broke down and went nowhere - especially seeing that the Jews knew that the boycott was crippling Germany’s economy.

When Schacht was leaving he was contacted by James McDonald on behalf of the Foreign Policy Association. McDonald stated that France was talking about invading Germany and dividing up the country if the Jewish persecution continued. The information was relayed to Hitler after Schacht was back on the boat to Germany.

Frankly, I think of Birth Control as an item, an important item, but just an item in the eugenic program I think it is supremely important as an item in the eugenic program, and the eugenic program is not Messianic. It again is an item, a very important item in a still larger program, and that larger program for me means this The translation of the ideals of human justice and human decency and human brotherliness in the life of the world That is all But without a eugenic program we shall not have the beginning, let alone the end of the realization of the social programs of which we are dreaming, and Birth Control, I repeat is the fundamental, primary element or item in the eugenic program.

Jesus said, "The poor ye have with you always" Well, there are two things to be said about that, either that Jesus was vastly and tragically mistaken, or that Jesus was stating a lamentable fact, rather than indulging in a glorious prophecy Jesus was to great and perfect a humanitarian to assent to the notion that poverty was inextinguishable, that it was indestructible. He looked around him and he saw that poverty was -- that poverty is -- "The poor ye have with you always" Had Jesus been asked, "Must this always be so? Will the poor always be suffered to perish from the earth?" if I understand the nund of Jesus, he would have said, he must have said, something such as this "No the day will come when in obedience to the will of God, you will find a way of ending the sin of poverty in the world"
