How Justice Brandais got his job
PRESIDENT WILSON BLACKMAILED
Shortly after President Wilson's first inauguration, he
received a visitor in the White House by the name of Mr. Samuel Untermeyer.
Mr. Untermeyer was a prominent New York city attorney who contributed
generously to the National Democratic committee that installed
President Wilson in the White House in Washington in the 1912
Mr. Untermeyer was a very welcome guest and President Wilson was very glad to welcome him to the White House. They had met before during the campaign.
Mr. Untermeyer surprised President Wilson that he had been
retained to bring a breach of promise action against President
Mr. Untermeyer informed President Wilson that his client
was willing to accept $40,000 in lieu of commencing the breach of
Mr. Untermeyer's client was the former wife of a Professor at Princeton University at the same time President Wilson was a professor at Princeton University.
Mr. Untermeyer produced a packet of letters from his pocket, written by President Wilson to his colleague's wife when they were neighbors at Princeton University. These letters established the illicit relationship which had existed between President Wilson and the wife of his colleague neighbor. He had written many endearing letters to her, many of which she never destroyed. President Wilson acknowledged his authorship of the letters after examining a few of them.
President Wilson left Princeton University to become the
Governor of New Jersey.
In 1912 he was elected to his first term
as president of the United States.
In the interim, President Wilson's former sweetheart had divorced her husband and married again. Her second husband was resident in Washington with a grown son who was in the employ of one of the leading banks in Washington.
Mr. Untermeyer explained to President Wilson that his
former sweetheart was very fond of her husband's son. He
explained that this son was in financial trouble and suddenly needed
$40,000, as he told the story, to liquidate a pressing liability to the
bank for which he worked. The details are not relevant here except that
the son needed the $40,000 badly and quickly.
President Wilson's former
sweetheart thought that Wilson was the logical prospect for that
$40,000 to help her husband's son.
President Wilson quickly set Mr. Untermeyer's mind at rest
by informing him that he did not have $40,000 available for any
Mr. Untermeyer suggested that President Wilson should
think the matter over and said he would return in a few days to discuss
the matter further.
Mr. Untermeyer used the next few days in Washington looking into the credibility of the son's story about his pressing need for $40,000 to liquidate a pressing liability. He learned that the son's story was not misrepresented in any way to his mother by her son.
Mr. Untermeyer returned to President Wilson a few days
later as they had agreed. President Wilson did not hesitate to
inform Mr. Untermeyer that he did not have the $40,000 to pay his
blackmailer. President Wilson appeared irritated.
Mr. Untermeyer considered the matter a few moments and then volunteered a solution to President Wilson for his problem.
Mr. Untermeyer volunteered to give President Wilson's former sweetheart the $40,000 out of his own pocket on one condition: that Wilson promise Untermeyer to appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme court a nominee to be recommended to Wilson by Untermeyer.
Without further talk, President Wilson accepted Mr.
Untermeyer's generous offer and Mr. Untermeyer promptly paid the
$40,000 in currency to president Wilson's former sweetheart.
contemplated breach of promise suit was never heard of after
Mr. Untermeyer retained in his possession permanently the packet of letters to insure against any similar attempt at some future time. [or could it be the letters were held by Untermeyer to further blackmail him should Wilson 'step out of line'? jp]
President Wilson was most grateful to Mr. Untermeyer
for everything he was doing to solve his problem.
was a man of great wealth. The law firm in New York of which he
was the leading partner, Messrs. Guggenheim, Untermeyer and Marshall,
is still today one of the nation's most prominent and most prosperous
Mr. Untermeyer organized the Bethlehem Steel Company for his friend, Mr. Charles M. Schwab, who resigned from the United States Steel Company to form his company in competition with it.
JUSTICE BRANDEIS -- THE PAY OFF
As anyone might reasonably suspect, Mr. Untermeyer must
have had something in mind when he agreed to pay President Wilson's
former sweetheart $40,000 out of his own pocket.
He paid the money out of his own pocket in the hope that it might bring to pass a dream close to his heart -- a Talmudist ("Jew") on the United States Supreme Court on which none had ever served.
The day soon arrived when President Willson was presented
with the necessity of appointing a new member of the United States
Mr. Untermeyer recommended Louis Dembitz Brandeis
for the vacancy, who was immediately appointed by Wilson.
President Wilson and Justice Brandeis became unusually intimate
Justice Brandeis knew the circumstances of his appointment to the Supreme Court by President Wilson.
In 1914 Justice Brandeis was the most prominent and most politically influential of all Zionists in the United States. As a justice of the United States Supreme Court, Brandeis was in a better position than ever before to be of service to Talmudists ("Jews") both at home and abroad. The first opportunity to perform a great service for his Zionist followers soon became available to Brandeis.
Justice Brandeis volunteered his opinion to president Wilson that the sinking of the S.S. Sussex by a German submarine in the English Channel with the loss of lives of United States citizens justified the declaration of war against Germany by the United States. Relying to a great extent upon the legal opinion of Justice Brandeis, President Wilson addressed both houses of Congress on April 2, 1917. He appealed to Congress to declare war against Germany and they did on April 7, 1917.
After the October 1916 agreement was concluded between the
British War Cabinet and the World Zionist Organization, the Talmudists
throughout the world were hopeful that an international incident would
soon occur to justify a declaration of war against Germany by the
The declaration of war against Germany by the United
States guaranteed the Talmudists throughout the world that Palestine
was to be turned over to them upon the defeat of Germany.
defeat of Germany was certain if the United States could be railroaded
into the war in Europe as Great Britain's ally. [end excerpt]
Who was this Samuel Untermeyer?
From Encyclopedia Americana 1954:
He took his
degree at Columbia University, New York to which city the family moved
soon after the Civil War and he was admitted to the bar in 1879.
He rose rapidly in his profession; became famous as a corporation
attorney and was noted for his connection with celebrated cases.
He was at times special adviser to the government in the interpretation and enforcement of the income tax law and was active in securing the enforcement of anti-trust legislation. He was a leader of the Jewish people and an advocate of government ownership.
Encyclopedia Britannica, 1964:
He was counsel in many
celebrated cases, covering almost every phase of corporation, civil,
criminal and international law.
Untermeyer urged [federal legislative] measures like the compulsory regulation of stock exchanges; reform of the criminal laws and regulation of trusts and combinations. He took part in preparing the Federal Reserve Bank Law, the Creighton Bill, Federal Trade Commission Bill and other legislation curbing trusts.
He was a delegate to the Democratic Conventions and a
strong supporter of President Woodrow Wilson, who appointed him to
serve on the commission which sat at Buenos Aires in 1916 to frame uniform laws (links outside this site; opens in a new browser window) for the Pan American countries.
Untermeyer acted for Governor Alfred E. Smith in a water-power controversy over the Niagara-St. Lawrence River, Adirondack Forest Reserve and other hydro-electric power rights, resulting in the defeat of the grants of the water power rights of the state to private interests.
