This installment reveals how Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt acted like a king and dictator who managed to be wrong on virtually every decision he was required to make.
Emperor and Dictator
From his first days as Chief Executive, Franklin Roosevelt pushed aside the Constitution in order to act as an emperor and dictator rather than an elected President. Upon taking office, Dictator Roosevelt made private ownership of gold illegal and sent government agents to invade private homes and businesses searching for gold to confiscate with fervor the Spanish Conquistadors would be proud of.
Before Roosevelt’s illegal Gestapo raids our money was backed by gold. Roosevelt devalued the price of gold to a fixed $35.00 per ounce. 
It is important to note that in spite of all of Roosevelt’s spending – whether legal or illegal – from 1933 to 1941 the unemployment rate did not fall below 14.3%. In fact unemployment sky rocketed 4.7% from 1937 to 1938 and hit 19% when the federal inflated money stream (read STIMULUS MONEY) ran dry. Dictator Roosevelt tried the same wild and senseless “stimulus” spending Barack Obama has tried and had as little success. 
Besides prolonging the Great Depression, which greatly benefited him and the Democrats, Roosevelt wasted no time violating the 1932 Democrat platform he was elected on which called for reducing government spending by 25%, a balanced budget, currency backed by gold and the discontinuation of ‘extravagant’ Republican farm programs. The platform said, “We believe that a party platform is a covenant with the people to be faithfully kept by the party entrusted with power.”
Roosevelt’s Double Deal
While Franklin Roosevelt called his approach to governing his “New Deal”, “Double Deal” was more like it.
Roosevelt was sworn in on March 6, 1933. Two days before his ascension to the throne he imagined himself to be taking over; he rejected a suggestion by his predecessor Republican Herbert Hoover, the man he defeated. Hoover had called for a “bank holiday” which would suspend all banking activity in the nation. Nevertheless, on March 7, 1933 Roosevelt declared a bank holiday based on the dubious claim that he had the power to do so based on the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917. Dictator Roosevelt decreed that banks could only reopen when and if he said they could. 
To fully appreciate the dire situation Roosevelt put America in immediately upon his taking office, it must be understood that the Democrats Roosevelt selected to “pull us out of the Depression” had a 180 degree wrong approach to solving our problems. They thought that falling prices caused the Depression when in reality it was the Depression that caused prices to fall!
This stunningly wrong notion caused the Democrats to raise consumer prices by creating artificial shortages. They thought cutting production would get us back on track. To make his theory fit, Democrats gave Emperor Roosevelt the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933 which restricted production per acre and other provisions that hamstrung the farming industry. It taxed food processing and paid farmers to cut back their production thereby introducing the cancer of the “something for nothing” mentality into the American mindset. 
Millions of rank and file Democrats who had gleefully voted for him and would genuflect at the name of Franklin Roosevelt suffered real hunger for no reason except to prove his unworkable economic theories. It has been estimated that perhaps 50% of children in America went without adequate food during the Roosevelt Administration. 
The central aim of the Roosevelt “recovery” plan was to regulate and control every business because America “needed” the highest prices possible produced by the least work possible at the highest labor costs possible. In Emperor Roosevelt’s mind this passed for sound economic recovery theory.
The National Recovery Administration
Socialist Democrat Roosevelt’s National Recovery Administration (NRA) was the forerunner of Socialist Democrat Barack Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The Obama circular emblem used by the now all but gone ARRA was purposefully suggestive of the shield style emblem used by Roosevelt’s NRA. Democrats never change their socialist goals, just the pictures they have to use to explain them to their supporters.  
Both were passed with an artificially generated atmosphere of fear. Both were extravagant wastes of money. Neither fulfilled its promise of ending high unemployment, and both unnecessarily added to the national debt.
The dangerous socialist policies of the NRA were managed by retired Army General Hugh Samuel Johnson.
In1933 Roosevelt appointed Johnson to run the NRA although there was nothing in his background that would indicate he knew anything about managing such a massive undertaking. Having no credentials for a position has always been a hallmark of elected or appointed Democrats.
Once appointed the heavy drinking Johnson turned out to be an admirer of Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini’s “corporativism” and he worked to bring Fascism to America.
Johnson handed out copies of a book outlining the benefits of fascism and personally alarmed Labor Secretary Frances Perkins when he approached her with a copy.
Johnson’s contribution to American freedoms was that his bungling destruction killed the NRA. His bleary eyed administration of the NRA was so poor and his policies so filled with contradictions that he actually put it out of business in two years. He was fired by Roosevelt in 1934 and fortunately the NRA was shut down the next year. 
The Second term of the Roosevelt reign
As Democrats before and since, Roosevelt saw the Constitution as an obstacle to his reign. Because Democrats controlled the entire federal government, Roosevelt had only the Supreme Court and its “pesky” concerns with “Constitutionality” to contend with.
Of course he had no respect for America’s institutions so just weeks after he was inaugurated for the second time in January 1937 Roosevelt launched his attacks against the Court. On February 5, two days after hosting the Justices of the Supreme Court at a White House dinner, Roosevelt announced a plan to change the Court. He had an opening to fill but could not find a reliable stooge to appoint so he felt he had to take things into his own hands. He proposed that he be allowed to add an additional member for each sitting member who was over seventy.
“Coincidentally” the Court’s most conservative members were over seventy at the time. The plan would add an additional six members to the Court and their presence would ensure Roosevelt’s socialist schemes would be judged Constitutional.
Even his most ardent supporters were shocked by the naked power grab. As Barack Obama has done since his election victory, Roosevelt greatly over estimated his mandate despite having won a 523 to 8 Electoral College victory.
For the first time Americans were outraged at what he was doing. Roosevelt had torn the cover off the real Democrat Party’s soul and it was frightening to those both in and out of politics. His Democrat Party was seen for the crude power hungry mob it was and still is. The plan was defeated by Congressional Democrats, not because they had suddenly developed a love for America’s cherished institutions, but because they knew it was a bad political move – politics and what is best for their Party are always at the bottom of what Democrats do.

The Schechter Brothers
One of the great stories of the fight against Roosevelt’s plans to make America a socialist country involves the Schechter Brothers, four kosher poultry merchants from Brooklyn. The NRA had decided kosher laws were illegal and demanded the Schechters scale down their cleanliness standards to conform to federal secular ones. The brothers said “No” and fought all the way to the Supreme Court where they appeared in the black clothes and beards of the Orthodox Jews they were. On May 27, 1935 the Schechters won one of the first and most important legal battles against Roosevelt’s evil plans. 
From 1933 to 1937, supported by a river of federal spending, the economy improved. Nevertheless, with Roosevelt safely re-elected he had to admit there was no more money left. When the federal spending was shut down, the nation went into a serious recession. Even the Democrats in Congress were afraid to follow Roosevelt so sharply to the left and most of his new spending bills were killed in the Congress.
The 1938 off-year elections saw a Republican resurgence that did not give them control, but did slow Roosevelt’s “Moscow Express.” …..
