BFP Nightly Quote

"The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen....At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties." -- John F. Hylan, New York City Mayor, 1922

  1. Your quotation by the Mayor of NYC from 1922 is excellent!

    It’s so sad that no present-day politician would even think of saying anything remotely close.

    Keep up your good work.
