FDR speech: I am certain that my fellow Americans expect that on my induction into the Presidency I will address them with a candor and a decision which the present situation of our Nation impels... I am prepared under my constitutional duty to recommend the measures that a stricken nation in the midst of a stricken world may require. These measures, or such other measures as the Congress may build out of its experience and wisdom, I shall seek, within my constitutional authority, to bring to speedy adoption.

But in the event that the Congress shall fail to take one of these two courses, and in the event that the national emergency is still critical, I shall not evade the clear course of duty that will then confront me. I shall ask the Congress for the one remaining instrument to meet the crisis broad Executive power to wage a war against the emergency, as great as the power that would be given to me if we were in fact invaded by a foreign foe...

This Nation asks for action, and action now... In this dedication of a Nation we humbly ask the blessing of God. May He protect each and every one of us. May He guide me in the days to come.

Roosevelt Or Ruin Says Father Coughlin In Plea For Loyalty (Nov33)

20:28:25 MCU Coughlin speaks to camera SOF: Ladies & Gentlemen, it is almost preposterous on my part to advocate your loyalty to...Roosevelt. The events of the past three weeks are eloquent in themselves. Our laborers are being restored...our factories are open; the prices of our commodities have been raised; why, may I ask, simply because the money changers are being driven from the temple, simply because the out-worn gold standard which held you and myself in bondage for generations has evaporated in the mists of the past.

20:29:16 The great advantages obtained thru the National Recovery Act are more or less insignificant compared to the greater advantages which the future holds for us once the fullfillment of Franklin Roosevelt s monetary policy will become history.

20:29:42 Ladies & Gentlemen, this is the day despite all opposition to the contrary that you remain steadfast behind the one man who can save this civilization of ours; it is either Roosevelt or ruin. I thank you.

Continues: right to work and his right to live. Today we stand committeed to the propositioin that freedom is no half-and half affair. If the average citizen is guaranteed equal opportunity in the polling place, he must have equal opportunity in the market place. (applause) These economic royalists complain that we seek to overthrow the institutions of America. What they really complain of is that we see to to take away their power. 20:07:36 MS continued. Our allegiance to American institutions requires the overthrow of this kind of power. (applause) In vain they seek to hide behind the Flag & the Constitution. But in their blindness they forget what the Flag & the Constitution stand for. Now, as always, for over a century and a half, the flag, the Constitution, stand against a dictatorship by mob rule & the over-privileged alike. And the flag & the Constituiion stand for Democracy & not tyranny, for freedm, not subjection. (applause). Coverage skips to:

20:09:05 LS The greatest guide of all is moral principle. We do not see faith, and hope, and charity as unattainable ideals. We use them as stout supports of a Nation fighting the fight for freedom in a modern civilization. Faith, faith in the soundness of democracy in the midst of dictatorship. Hope renewed because we know so well the progress we have made. And Charity, Charity in the true spirit of thatgrand old word. For charity literally translated from the original means love, the love that understands, that does not merely share the wealth of the giver, but in true sympathy helps men to help themselves.

They have therefore impatiently reverted to the old belief of the law of the sword; or to the fantastic conception that they, and they alone, are chosen to fulfill a mission and that all the others among the billion and a half of human beings in the world must and shall learn from and be subject to them.

22:55:47 I recognize, and you will recognize, that these worlds which I have chosen w/ deliberation will not prove popular in any nation that chooses to fit this shoe to its foot (applause).

22:56:09 ` As a consistent part of a clear policy the United States is following a two-fold neutrality towards any and all nations which engage in wars that are not of an immediate concern of the Americas. First, we decline to encourage the prosecution of war by permitting belligerents to obtain arms, ammunition, or implements of war from the United States. Second, we seek to discourage the use by belligerent nations of any and all American products calculated to facilitate the prosecution of a war in quantities over & above our normal export of them in time of peace.

[FDR s Message to Congress on Appropriations for National Defense - Part 1]

President Roosevelt s requests to Congress for defense funds.

These are ominous days... Motorised armies can sweep through enemy territories... We have seen the treacherous use of the "fifth column" by which persons supposed to be peaceful visitors were actually a part of an enemy unit of occupation... Our own vital interests are widespread. More than ever the protection of the whole American hemisphere against invasion or control or domination by non-American nations has the united support of the twenty-one American Republics, including the United States.... But the new element - air navigation - steps up the speed of possible attack to two hundred, to three hundred miles an hour... Surely, the developments of the past few weeks have made it clear to all of our citizens that the possibility of attack on vital American zones ought to make it essential that we have the physical, the ready ability to meet those attacks and to prevent them from reaching their objectives.... An effective defense by its very nature requires the equipment to attack the aggressor on his route before he can establish strong bases within the territory of American vital interests.

We can provide a transcript of the entire speech

[FDR s Message to Congress on Appropriations for National Defense - Part 2]

President Roosevelt s requests to Congress for defense funds.

Many of the planes of the belligerent powers are at this moment not of the latest models.... But one belligerent power (...) also appears to have a weekly production capacity at the moment that is far greater than that of all its opponents.... great additional production capacity is our principal air requisite... I ask the Congress not to take any action which would in any way hamper or delay the delivery of American-made planes to foreign nations which have ordered them... Our immediate problem is to superimpose on [our] production capacity a greatly increased additional production capacity... this nation should plan at this time a program that would provide us with 50,000 military and naval planes.

The ground forces of the Army require the immediate speeding up of last winter's program to procure more equipment of all kinds...

First, to procure the essential equipment of all kinds for a larger and thoroughly rounded-out Army;

Second, to replace or modernize all old Army and Navy equipment with the latest type of equipment;

Third, to increase production facilities for everything needed for the Army and Navy for national defense. For it is clear that we require the ability to turn out quickly infinitely greater supplies;

Fourth, to speed up to a twenty-four hour basis all existing Army and Navy contracts, and all new contracts to be awarded....

There are some who say that democracy cannot cope with the new techniques of Government developed in recent years by some countries... That I reject.... I know that to cope with present dangers we must be strong ... in our faith - strong in the faith in our way of living.... Our defenses must be invulnerable, our security absolute... Defense cannot be static. Defense must grow and change from day to day. Defense must be dynamic and flexible... For these reasons (...) I will not hesitate to call the Congress into special session if at any time the situation of the national defense requires it.

we stand ready not only to spend millions for defense but to give our service and even our lives for the maintenance of our American liberties.

[FDR Address to Pan-American Union - Part One]

Address before the Governing Board of the Pan American Union, White House, May 27, 1941

re why the Americas should fight the threat of German domination over the seas.

... what started as a European war has developed, as the Nazis always intended it should develop, into a world war for world domination... unless the advance of Hitlerism is forcibly checked now, the Western Hemisphere will be within range of the Nazi weapons of destruction... Every dollar of material we send helps to keep the dictators away from our own hemisphere. Every day that they are held off gives us time to build more guns and tanks and planes and ships... The supply of these tools will not fail-it will increase. .. Under those terms Germany would literally parcel out the world, hoisting the swastika itself over vast territories and populations, and setting up puppet governments of its own choosing, wholly subject to the will and the policy of a conqueror... They plan to treat the Latin American nations as they are now treating the Balkans... The American laborer would have to compete with slave labor in the rest of the world. Minimum wages, maximum hours? Nonsense!... We do not accept, and will not permit, this Nazi "shape of things to come." ... The war is approaching the brink of the Western Hemisphere itself. It is coming very close to home.... Control or occupation by Nazi forces of any of the islands of the Atlantic would jeopardize the immediate safety of portions of North and South America, and of the island possessions of the United States and of the ultimate safety of the continental United States itself... The Axis Powers can never achieve their objective of world domination unless they first obtain control of the seas (...) and to achieve it, they must capture Great Britain. .... But if the Axis Powers fail to gain control of the seas, they are certainly defeated... Both they and their people know this-and they are afraid... Yes; all freedom(...) All of American history (...) has been inevitably tied up with those words "freedom of the seas." ... We can answer this peril by two simultaneous measures: First, by speeding up and increasing our great shipbuilding program; and second, by helping to cut down the losses on the high seas. Attacks on shipping off the very shores of land which we are determined

to protect present an actual military danger to the Americas. And that danger has recently been heavily underlined by the presence in Western Hemisphere waters of Nazi battleships of great striking power.

We can provide a transcript of the entire speech

[FDR Address to Pan-American Union - Part Two]

First, we shall actively resist wherever necessary, and with all our resources, every attempt by Hitler to extend his Nazi domination to the Western Hemisphere, or to threaten it. We shall actively resist his every attempt to gain control of the seas.... vital I importance of keeping Hitlerism away from any point in the world which could be used (...) as a base of attack against the Americas.

Second(...) we shall give every possible assistance to Britain and to all who, (...) are resisting Hitlerism or its equivalent with force of arms... Your Government has the right to expect of all citizens that they take loyal part in the common work of our common defense (...) .

... All of us know that we have made very great social progress in recent years.... When the Nation is threatened from without, however, as it is today, the actual production and transportation of the machinery of defense must not be interrupted by disputes between capital and capital, labor and labor, or capital and labor.

... We will not accept a Hitler-dominated world... We will accept only a world consecrated to freedom of speech and expression-freedom of every person to worship God in his own way-freedom from want-and freedom from terror.

We reassert the ancient American doctrine of freedom of the seas.

We reassert the solidarity of the 21 American Republics and the Dominion of Canada in the preservation of the independence of the hemisphere.

We have pledged material support to the other democracies of the world- and we will fulfill that pledge.

We in the Americas will decide for ourselves whether, and when, and where, our American interests are attacked or our security threatened. We are placing our armed forces in strategic military position. We will not hesitate to use our armed forces to repel attack.

We reassert our abiding faith in the vitality of our constitutional Republic as a perpetual home of freedom, of tolerance, and of devotion

to the word of God... I have tonight issued a proclamation that an unlimited national emergency exists and requires the strengthening of our defense to the extreme limit of our national power and authority.

Pres. Roosevelt Reports On Crimea Meeting

07:41:05 Ext. of Capitol w/ crowds as motorcade arrives. Int. w/ arrivals for joint session. FDR seated at table, speaks (SOF): Its been a long journey; I hope you also will agree it hass been, so far, a fruitful one. Speaking in all frankness, the question of whether it is entirely fruitful or not, lies to a great extent in your hands. For unless you were here, you here in the halls of the American Congress, with the support of the American people, concur in the general conclusions reached at a place called Yalta, and give them your active support, the meeting will not have produced lasting results. There were two main purposes in this Crimea conference: the first was to bring the defeat of Germany w/ the greatest possible speed, & the smallest possible loss of Allied men. The second purpose was to continue to build the foundation for an international accord that will bring order & security after the chaos of the war; and would give some assurance of lasting peace among nations of the world.

07:42:45 The Conference in the Crimea was a turning point. I hope in our history, & therefore in the history of the world, it will soon be presented in the Senate & the American people a great decision which will determine the fate of the United States, & I think therefore the fate of the world, for generations to come. There can be no middle ground here. We shall have to take the responsibility for world collaboration; or we shall have to bear the responsibility for another world conflict. And I am confident that the Congress & the American people will accept the results of this conference as a beginning of a permanent structure of peace; upon which we can begin to build, under God, that better world in which our children & grandchildren - yours & mine - children & grandchildren of the whole world must live & can live. Standing applause.
