"Out of th evastness of Cosmos the Psychic Antennae tune in on a Voice…."

AndWilliam Dudley Pelley gets the lastes dope heaven. All about President Franklin D. Roomevelt–" reliably reputed to be the descendent of certain Duth Jews"–who is a tool of the Jeews, you known He was elected by them, and he is running the country for them. True? Sure it’s true. The Psychic Antennae say so. And the Psychic Antennae never lie.

The Psychic Antennae have a lot up their collective sleeve. You’ll find the whole Silver Shirt Organization there, if you look hard enough. they are the people who want "to establish a true Christ Democracy– but mind you, strictly under the laws of the American Constitution."

The week, in th eCosmos’ weekly Voice, "Liberation", a few more choice exposes from on high are revealed. There’s "poor old George Arliss", for instance. He’s become a Jewish propagandist.

"The Jews needed propaganda if ever they were to dominate the nation in the age-old manner prescribed by the Talmud." And, strict believers in the Talmud as they all are–especially in these non-existent parts that the Silver Shirts love to study–the Jews took overthe movies. They also "took" Russia, just to roud out the whole thing. Naturally, Pelley and allthe vasiness of his Cosmos resented the vile Jews who were conquering the earth. Pelley also resented the actions of the President–how dare he thik of such a thing as the N.R.A.? He is a tool of the silly Jews. Pelley known. The Voice told him.

So the poor Jews got scared of Pelley. And what did they do?They "coneived the idea that it was time to abandon all produce a photoplay that should teach the morons what excellent people the Jews are on principle." They decided to produce a picture called "The House of Rothschild." Dastardly Jews!


And "poor old George Arless" was the one chosen to play in this horrible production. Poor, poor George Arliss! He’s going to play in another movie!

The Voice has much more to tell you. There’s the story of the Rothschilds. They rose to power. And they were Jews. Those two sins the Silver Shirts will never forgive. It is not nicluded in their program–"No More Hunger! Volume One–The Twenty-Two Articles of the Christ Democracy, by William Dudley Pelley." In collaboration with the Psychi Antennae, it is assumed.

And then, there’s the inside story of the bond retirements. Tricky business that. And the pure food and drug act. It means "that if you tell your friends that they should drink grape juice or eat a tomato, you will be guity of practicing medicine without a license and may be subject to fine." Interpretation of the law, from the vastness of the Cosmos direct to William Dudley Pelley, Boz 2630, Asheville, North Carolina, collect.
