Who Was “Colonel” House?


This article may seem a bit esoteric to my readers. Who was Colonel Edward Mandell house, and why should present day Americans care?

I have read a bit about House in the books of Eustace Mullins, G. Edward Griffin, and John V. Denson –along with doing some online research. This little essay is sort of a brief intro into who he was, and why his wicked name should be remembered.

Edward Mandell House was born in Texas in 1858. His father was extremely wealthy. Edward’s father owned large amounts of land, in addition to being a banker. Edward attended Cornell University, something most Texas ranch boys never dreamed of. The rank of “Colonel” was honorary; he was never a soldier. Eventually Edward used his wealth to gain great influence –if not control- over the governorship of the state of Texas. Around 1902 he moved to New York City, and the story gets more significant…

House became active in national politics, and became a close advisor to Woodrow Wilson. After Wilson was elected president, House declined official political office, but had quarters in the White House so that he might advise Wilson from behind the scenes. Recall that this was the period in which America got the 16th and 17th Amendments, and the Federal Reserve.

The Texas boy House was familiar with Paul Warburg, Jacob Schiff, and Fabian Socialists. Not exactly a cowboy.

House was involved in behind the scenes negotiations with Great Britain concerning potential America entry into WWI, and likely had foreknowledge of the sinking of the Lusitania, as did a young F.D.R. and Winston Churchill. House was deeply involved in the negotiations of the Versailles Treaty at the close of WWI, and advocated for U.S. membership in the League of Nations.

House also (anonymously) wrote a novel titled Philip Dru, Administrator a book that presented a scenario where a man becomes the dictator of the former U.S.A. and institutes all manner of communist “reforms”. Some of these reforms documented by Eustace Mullins include: “the enactment of the graduated income tax, excess profits tax, unemployment insurance, social security, and a flexible currency system”. Basically, this is stuff straight out of the Communist Manifesto; of course, most of this stuff is currently supported by both the Democrat and Republican parties.

In the Biographies end section of my 1993 hardcover edition of Eustace Mullins The Secrets Of The Federal Reserve, Mullins describes House as: “Son of a Rothschild agent in Texas. Succeeded in electing five consecutive governors of Texas; became Woodrow Wilson’s advisor in 1912. Cooperated with Paul Warburg to get the Federal Reserve Act passed by Congress in 1913”. Furthermore, Mullins reports that Rabbi Stephen Wise referred to House as “the unofficial Secretary of State”. That was House in a nutshell.

House was friends with a British Secret Service officer by the name of Sir William Wiseman, who was head of the BSS in America. On page 142 of A Century of War, Denson quotes that House “habitually permitted Sir William Wiseman…to sit in his private office in New York and read the most secret documents of the American government”. Furthermore, in Griffin’s The Creature From Jekyll Island, Griffin reports that: “House advised Wiseman that President Wilson desired to have Trotsky released, Wiseman advised his government, and the British Admiralty issued orders on April 21st that Trotsky was to be sent on his way”. Thus, House played a key role in enabling Leon Trotsky (birth name Bronstein) to help launch the Bolshevik revolution in Russia.

House helped destroy this great country, being deeply involved in the creation of the Federal Reserve, enabling, Bolshevism, and getting the U.S. into WWI.

Author: Joe Putnam

I am a Christian (Sovereign Grace/ Reformed Baptist), American of European bloodline, admirer of America's Founding Fathers, author, White Nationalist, Kinist, advocate for the Amerikaner identity concept, and aspiring homesteader. I published my first book "A Bible Based View Of Liberty And Free Governments" in May 2013. It is no longer in print. My second book, Putnam Liberty Notes, was published in print form in March 2016, and is for sale on Amazon.com. In May 2016 I started my own blog here at WordPress to promote this book. In early August 2016 I published my third book, "As America Fades". As America Fades is basically a sequel to Putnam Liberty Notes and is a 28 essay, 96 page little book of commentary articles on America, liberty, current events, race, personal security, and the coming police state. On January 13, 2017 I published my fourth book, "Bloggings Of An Amerikaner". "BOAA" is the third volume in my little series, and places special emphasis on the Amerikaner identity concept. All three are only $5 each, and are available on both Amazon and directly through my printer on the CreateSpace website.

  1. Wilson called House his alter ego and advisor so their thoughts were aligned. This being true House was responsible for the Federal Reserve, 17th Amendment which stripped states of their represenation, the income tax, and of course WW1.
