FDR was a Globalist through and through,and we as a nation have been paying with our sweat and blood since FDR set in motion the events of March 9th,1933. The conspiracy against Japan....
.... WHEN SECRETARY STIMSON boldly announced on January 7, 1932, his nonrecognition policy, he felt confident that he could rely upon a large section of the American press for support. The old tradition of isolation had been slowly and steadily undermined by ardent one-worlders who were desperately anxious for America to bear a larger share of the burdens that the World War had thrust upon the weakened back of Europe. The New York press had led the assaults of these journalistic saboteurs with the Times as the leader of the offensive. Stimson had carefully watched this conflict and had come to the conclusion that the old American order had collapsed. His nonrecognition note would serve as a stirring call to all internationalists to build a new political edifice whose ample dimensions would require enormous supplies of American materials and whose maintenance would impose a staggering load upon the American taxpayer.
The New York Times was quick to answer the summons of Mr. Stimson. It candidly admitted that in former years "frank communication by Mr. Stimson would have been regarded as indelicate and undiplomatic."1 In the new international era that had just been ushered in, the Stimson note was a cordial invitation for concerted action against the wickedness that had raised its ugly head in Manchuria. The Richmond Times-Dispatch gave expression to this sentiment and was certain that the doctrine of non-recognition would make Japan a "pariah nation."2 The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette echoed this viewpoint 3 with the Los Angeles Times humming the same blithe melody.4 The Indianapolis News stressed the "timeliness" of the Stimson note,5 while the Boston Daily Globe burst into ecstasy that Stimson had given voice to the sentiment that "every friend of peace throughout the world has been awaiting."6
The Cleveland Plain Dealer was outspoken in its praise of the policy expressed by Secretary Stimson,7 while the Chicago Daily News 8 and the Kansas City Star 9 added their voices to this chorus of approval. But the Chicago Tribune could not approve the manner in which the Secretary of State had moved in concert with the League of Nations, and it feared that we had given "Japan a grievance which could have been avoided."10 The Philadelphia Record and the Washington Post also recorded apprehensions concerning any intimate association with the League.11
In the South the Atlanta Constitution threw out a hint of warning. "The United States is treading on dangerous ground in becoming involved in the Manchurian situation to the extent of joining other nations in notes of warning to Japan which are tantamount to threats. It is none of our business until some of our rights have been infringed upon."12
The Hearst press was quick to point out the dangers of the knight errantry of Mr. Stimson: "The Asiatic treasure house need not agitate us or the State Department. Japan is only doing in Manchuria what the United States did when it took Texas away from Mexico."13 The New York Daily News was equally critical: "When Frank B. Kellogg was Secretary of State he used to be known as Meddlesome Mattie. In justice to Mr. Kellogg it must now be admitted that never in his palmiest days did he equal Secretary of State Henry L. Stimson as a giver of advice."14
Some periodicals representing the so-called "liberal elements" in the East were sharply critical of the Stimson note. The New Republic thought that the doctrine of non-recognition would be as "effective as saying to a man who has burned down his neighbor's house: 'I refuse to take cognizance of the conflagration and shall continue to send letters to the old address.' " The implication of war was clearly recognized. "If Mr. Hoover and Secretary Stimson persist in this course and Japan does not yield, we are likely to be faced with the bald choice of fighting or suffering a thumping diplomatic defeat."15
The Communist Party organ, the Daily Worker, was certain that the Stimson policy had the ultimate aim of crushing the communist movement in China.
