American Empire and Japanese Internment

A few weeks ago, I was discussing this topic via email with a libertarian oriented friend of mine. He lives on the West Coast, and he and his wife had recently taken a mini-vacation in California and visited several interesting places, including Death Valley and one of the WWII era Japanese civilian internment camps.

This got me to thinking about the chain of events that led to the Federal government rounding up and soft-core imprisoning American citizens of Japanese ethnicity in this camp in California.

I suppose that first I should note that many of these Japanese were legally U.S. citizens, not Meztizos for Mexico or Central America who snuck across the border illegally. These Japanese would not have been allowed to become American citizens by the Founding Fathers, as openly proclaimed in their Naturalization Acts of 1790 and 1795. Whether they should have been here, much less citizens, is debatable. But they were here, and legally.

How did we get to the point that the state preemptively rounds up individuals who had not shown signs of either espionage or violence? It all started around 1865…

Abraham Lincoln started a war to regain the sovereign states of the C.S.A., to subdue them and forcefully reunite them to the U.S.A. –primarily for financial reasons. He used the anti-slavery theme to try to justify his military aggression. Further, he spurned the Constitution in States that were still in the Union –at times shutting down newspapers, trying civilians in military tribunals, printing valueless paper money (aka greenbacks), and utilizing martial law.

The results of Lincoln’s actions were the normalization in the minds of many of unconstitutional actions and total political equality of the races. The more leftist among us champion that freed blacks became citizens, while the more rightish love to follow Lincoln in violating the Constitution during war or for “national security”.

After the WBTS, America’s first unnecessary war, America slid toward empire mode. We acquired Hawaii, over a thousand miles from our Pacific coast. Then in 1898 we invaded Cuba during the Spanish America War, and seized the Spanish ruled Phillipine Islands for ourselves. This placed more non-whites in U.S. territory, creating cultural and linguistic problems.

But why was this empire ever built? Money. Powerful interests lusted for American control of greater areas of land, even when our people had not yet fully settled what we already had. New land brought more natural resources, more labor, and more potential markets. It all started and ended with mammon. U.S. soldiers died attempting to subdue Moro savages in 1914 while Wall Street got new banana fields. It really is that simple and that venal.

Enter WWII. In WWI, F.D.R. and Churchill were in high levels in the Navy bureaucracy of their respective countries. By 1939, they were the President and Prime Minister. Why set up another Lusitania incident when Pearl Harbor dangled within reach of the Japanese? Churchill and Roosevelt were both connected to powerful Jews, and International Jewry hated Hitler –the only man in the world who was reasserting ethno-nationalism for his people. By getting Japan to attack Pearl Harbor, it was a way to take our pro-British “lend lease” program to the next level –that of full out war with Britain against NS Germany.

Thus F.D.R. diplomatically maneuvered Japan into making the first act of aggression, which it is now known he had advance notice of. F.D.R. let the boys at Pearl die so that he could advance the interests of England – and thus the House of Rothschild.

Caught in the middle of all this were Japanese civilians who had immigrated to U.S. territory, with many of them having legally became U.S. citizens and productive members of the community. They were then summarily and unconstitutionally ripped from their homes and put in camps in California. Almost no one cared about the Constitution after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, much like almost no one cared after 9/11 when we got the Patriot Act and the DHS.

America loved wealth, built an empire, broke the Three Principles and embraced Neo-Babelism by letting in the Japanese. Hawaii should have never been a U.S. possession, let alone a state. America should not have intervened in WWII. The Japanese should have never been on U.S. soil. Peaceful American citizens should have never been rounded up and incarcerated without cause. What a moral and legal mess!

I am a Christian (Reformed/Sovereign Grace Baptist type), white American of Western European bloodline, advocate of an agrarian social order, Kinist, White Nationalist, admirer of America’s Founding Fathers and the Boys in Gray, homesteader, indie published author, and amateur historian. I have indie published several books, all of which are available from Amazon. I am a life long resident of rural Orange County, IN –in the part of the Upper South that many would term Greater Appalachia or the Dixie Frontier. In addition to my own blog "Putnam Liberty Notes", from May through July of 2017 I dual published many of my posts at the popular multi-author Alt-South blog Identity Dixie. In addition to my blog writings, I am currently gearing up for (at least) two more book projects –one theological and one historical. The theological one will cover the three interpretational views of Daniel’s 70th Week. I hope to have this book in print in late summer 2017. (Hint: I am, not a Dispensational Futurist). The historical book will be a biography of George Rogers Clark (1752-1818). Clark was a noted Virginia militia officer who’s campaigns, including his successful siege of Vincennes, basically took the Old Northwest from Britain during the American Revolution. Clark spent the rest of his life around the river that separates Clarksville, IN from Louisville, Kentucky. I hope to have my Clark bio in print in early 2018.

  1. This has been a standard M.O. with the United States for a number of years. Take an engineered and coerced crises and convince Americans that a group must surrender their rights for the safety of us all. Most don’t realize when one group can be unconstitutionally detained and arrested the same can happen to the rest of us. Great post Joe.


    1. Hello Watchman,
      Glad you enjoyed the post. You are correct that rights often vanish a piece at a time, often just against a particular segment of the population -i.e. infringements on the 2nd Amendment affect gun owners, but also open up the Bill of Rights for other infringements.
