103 Years After Leo Frank’s Execution
THIS WEEK MARKS the 103rd anniversary of the death of Leo Frank, who was lynched on August 17, 1915 by some of the leading citizens of Atlanta, outraged at a corrupt governor’s commutation of his death sentence. The Leo Frank case marked a major turning point in White/Jewish relations in the United States and — especially considering how weak is the Jewish position that asserts that Frank was an innocent victim of “anti-Semitism” — is very much worthy of our attention.
Philip St. Raymond of The American Mercury wrote recently of a new audio book that is being issued in installments at that venerable publication, which contains many new revelations about the case, based on the amazingly good research of the Jew-critical Black separatist group the Nation of Islam Historical Research Group. An extract of his latest report follows.
* * *
THE CRIMINAL ACTS of the Leo Frank forces as they attempted to get a new trial for their client — or invalidate the results of the original trial — are so numerous, so outrageous, so obvious, and so egregious that — once you hear about them in this new audio book — you will be outraged at how academia and the media have kept these facts from you. Did you know an attempt was made to pay an inmate to poison one of the state’s main witnesses, James Conley? In fact, it’s fair to say that chicanery on this scale comes very close to proving that Frank was guilty — and that his legal/propaganda/dirty tricks team knew he was guilty; for these are not the acts of innocent men with clear consciences.
The Burns Detective Agency was hired by the Leo Frank legal team to “find new evidence” and invalidate witnesses’ testimony after Frank was convicted. The agency’s and Frank’s other allies’ scandalous behavior — planting fake evidence; bribing perjurers; paying witnesses to leave town; and even attempting to murder a prosecution witness! — was a significant factor in convincing Georgians that Frank was indeed guilty.
In this, the thirteenth audio segment of this ground-breaking work originally published by the Nation of Islam, part of their series called The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, we also learn of the judicial condemnation of Frank’s team — another thing that today’s media accounts and academic studies of the Frank case leave out.
This, the best investigative effort made on the Leo Frank case in the last 100 years, will take you on a trip into the past — to the greatest American murder mystery of all time; a mystery that will reveal to you the hidden forces that shape our world even today.

Kevin Alfred Strom said of the case and this ground-breaking book:
* * *
A Jew, Leo Frank was [in 1913] the president of the Atlanta branch of the B’nai B’rith, and was also superintendent and part-owner of the National Pencil Company, the sweatshop where little Mary [Phagan] was killed. We’ve discussed this important case before on this program, and some new facts have come to light that deserve public exposure.
The Leo Frank case is important for two reasons: First, because it’s a case — perhaps the first in recent years — in which people on our side, racially conscious Whites with an awareness of the Jewish Question, have been able to make significant headway against the Jewish propaganda juggernaut. Searches on the topic of Frank and his victim Mary Phagan regularly turn up significant numbers of first-page links to truth-telling sites that document the case objectively and present the overwhelming evidence of Frank’s guilt, along with exposés of how Jewish individuals and organizations, and those employed by Jews, have engaged in criminal obstruction of justice and blatant, easily exposed, lying for propaganda purposes. They may have the TV specials, the docudramas, and the newspaper headlines — but we have the facts; we have the in-depth research libraries like http://leofrank.info with reams upon reams of solid documentation which shows the Jews to be what they are.
In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if our success on the subject of Leo Frank was one reason the Jews at Google have now decided to rig their algorithms to demote “anti-Semitic” search results to hundredth-page oblivion. Just like I once said about Leo Frank’s planting of fake evidence to falsely implicate two Black men in the murder he himself committed: This is not the act of an innocent man. Rigging the algorithms so that exposés of the Jews and their agenda are largely hidden from view is not the act of an innocent group. It is also not the act of a group whose strength is increasing — it’s the act of a criminal gang that greatly fears the exposure of its crimes to the light of day. It’s an act that proves we’re winning.
Second, the Leo Frank case is important because it sheds light on the psychology and the weaknesses of those who are brazenly attempting the genocide of our race.
I was surprised to discover new evidence of this — evidence ignored by mainstream publishers for a century — in a book put out by the Jew-critical Black organization, the Nation of Islam Research Group. It’s The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, volume 3: The Leo Frank Case; the Lynching of a Guilty Man and it is well worth reading. It does emphasize what the authors see as the anti-Black bias of the Frank defense team and Southern society in general, but it is competently written and well-researched and does not at all resemble the childish “We Wuz Kangs” literature one expects from Afrocentric groups.
When Leo Frank was convicted of strangling Mary Phagan to death after she refused his sexual advances, a huge nationwide newspaper and magazine campaign was launched by the Jews in an attempt to convince the public that Frank was innocent and deserved a new trial. Even though the South was not “anti-Semitic” — philo-Semitic is more like it, just as today — and even though Leo Frank himself stated that “anti-Semitism” was not the reason he was prosecuted, the alleged Jew-hatred of Southerners became the centerpiece of the propaganda campaign. Jewish writers falsely claimed that anti-Semitic mobs shouted “hang the Jew” and “crack the Jew’s neck” and the like right outside the open courtroom windows, and that the judge and jury were threatened with hanging themselves if they failed to convict Frank. These fake news articles have been quoted and re-quoted and recycled for a hundred years now, and are still all over the controlled media, the latest example being a really ludicrous fake news piece in Salon magazine unironically titled “What the Leo Frank case tells us about the dangers of fake news.”
The head of this propaganda campaign was a Jewish advertising and public relations executive named Albert Lasker. He handled the money-men — Jews like Wall Street financier Jacob Schiff and Julius Rosenwald of Sears — and directed the efforts of innumerable writers, editors, and publishers from those working for small local weeklies to giant metropolitan dailies like Adolph Ochs’ New York Times. Lasker was the head of Lord & Thomas, the largest advertising agency in the world.
Over the next several years, Lasker would run the largest and most sophisticated Jewish disinformation campaign ever seen in America, transforming Leo Frank in the gullible public’s mind from a perverted sex killer of a 13-year-old girl to a noble, innocent martyr and the victim of unreasoning and pervasive Southern hatred of Jews.
That Lasker was a Jewish supremacist is clear. He said
The Jews are a superior people. I have a hard time hiding that; I believe we should be patient with non-Jews…. I deeply believe that no Christian civilization can last that removed from it the Jews. That it is the Jew that brings them the pollen.
Lasker’s campaign was wildly successful in changing the minds of Americans — at least Americans who were far from Atlanta and who had not read the day-to-day reporting on the investigation and trial and so were quite ignorant of the facts of the case. Lasker “sold” the American people on the idea of Southern “anti-Semitism” and the “persecution” of “innocent” Frank — just as he sold millions of Americans on the virtues of smoking Lucky Strike cigarettes.
Later in life, though, Lasker regretted making “Southern anti-Semitism” the focus of his propaganda efforts, since Georgians resented the lie greatly and that may have contributed to a new resentment and distrust of Jews — and to Frank’s lynching itself. He said:
[We] indicted the whole people of Georgia; well, then, as was natural, in any group, you solidify…. We put the whole state of Georgia on trial and we did what is so often done, in the cure that we gave for the disease, we increased the disease.
…I made a great mistake. Georgia, which had kept it quiet, resented the pressure from outsiders…. Yes. I want to make up to Georgia for what I did to them then, because there is where our greatest mistake was when we took and flashed this all over the country.
[What I should have said to the newspapermen was: We] don’t want you to print a word; we want you to tell this to people who have economic connections in Georgia, and we want them to talk to the economic leaders of the South. We want them to go down to Washington and talk to them quietly as if nothing was going on…. If we had done that I think we would have saved the boy’s life, but when we put this tremendous pressure on all of them, the state was indicted and there came a unanimous opinion in Georgia that he was guilty; so I handled it badly…. We didn’t understand the psychology…. The boy was commuted and lynched. I got him lynched instead of hung, that is all that happened.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that such second thoughts indicate that Lasker had a guilty conscience about deceiving the people — on the contrary, his regrets are simply based on his failure to save Frank, the B’nai B’rith president and therefore a representative of Jews generally. Lasker’s lack of conscience and cold, cynical value system is demonstrated in one of his first acts on behalf of Frank’s Jewish supporters: he traveled, along with influential Hearst chain newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane, on a strategy-planning mission to Atlanta to meet the Frank defense team, the prosecution team, and Frank himself. He thought little of Frank and even suspected him of sex perversion based on his appearance and manner — but nevertheless carried through the utterly cynical campaign to make him a martyr. Lasker stated:
[N]either Brisbane nor I liked Frank. From our interviews, we found him a supercilious egotist who was enjoying this notoriety. We took a great prejudice against him and we could see… how it would add to the psychology of those against him who didn’t have an open mind.
Both he and I took a tremendous prejudice against the prisoner [Frank]. Like so many, all this publicity had gone to his head — he became a megalomaniac… So we disliked our principle very much, but we determined in our minds that he was innocent and that this was a big frame-up….
Later, Lasker and Brisbane met with detective William J. Burns and Atlanta Georgian editor Keats Speed and together interviewed Frank. Lasker privately stated of this meeting:
It was very hard for us to be fair to him, he [Frank] impressed us as a sexual pervert.
Keats Speed described Lasker’s reaction after the interview with Frank:
And when we got out and started down the courthouse steps — Lasker hated him — he said [of Frank], “Well, I hope he gets out… and when he gets out I hope he slips on a banana peel and breaks his neck.”
The quotes from Lasker can be found in private letters, interviews, and in his biography, The Man Who Sold America.
So there you have it. The Jewish boss of the campaign to exonerate Frank in the public’s mind was disgusted by Frank, thought him a sexual pervert (and likely a murderer), but nevertheless, in loyalty to his tribe, “determined in his mind that he was innocent” and cynically pushed the image of Frank as a martyr to evil White bigotry, “bigotry” which Lasker well knew never existed. Can you bring to mind any person of your acquaintance who more thoroughly embodies living a lie?
One of the largest and most influential Jewish groups in America, the Anti-Defamation League, or “ADL,” began its first operations as a part of the campaign to exonerate Frank. The Jews of the ADL have been living a lie, too, since they are one of the most prominent portrayers of Frank as an innocent martyr and of the White people of Georgia as vicious, unreasoning haters — yet an investigative report on the Frank case which was commissioned by the ADL itself in 1953, and never made public, indicates clearly that Frank was a liar.
The report, titled “Anti-Semitism and the Leo M. Frank Case,” was prepared by DeWitt H. Roberts and can be found in the American Jewish Archives in Cinncinnati, Ohio, under item number SC-3576.
Roberts said of Frank’s own testimony that it was “marked by factual error” and that it — not “anti-Semitism” — “completed the case against him” in the minds of the jury:
His four-hour appearance on the witness stand was disingenuous in the extreme…. It’s doubtful he persuaded anyone… that he was guiltless. Indeed, the more probable reactions were suspicion and disbelief.
Roberts reported to the ADL that — except for the family and friends of Frank — even the Jews of Atlanta largely believed Frank to be guilty before and during his trial, changing their position only after Lasker’s massive propaganda campaign had begun:
Apparently, except for close personal associates, his family and in-laws, Herbert Haas, some members of the Journal staff… and Rabbi Marx, no one believed Frank innocent until after his conviction.
I dedicate this piece to the memory of Mary Phagan, who was lured to her death in the bowels of Leo Frank’s sweatshop 104 years ago this week. May her spirit live among us today and every day for the rest of our lives, inspiring us to expose the people of the lie who knowingly and with malice aforethought venerate her murderer and viciously defame the White people of Georgia, and whose inhuman and quintessentially evil goal is the genocide of our race.

Mr. Strom also has brought out, in detail, the acts of the corrupt governor who so outraged Atlanta’s leading citizens that they sought to carry out the execution themselves (some would call their acts extra-judicial, but they believed it was Governor Slaton who committed extra-judicial acts):
* * *
THIS WEEK is the anniversary of the carrying out of the sentence of death by hanging imposed by the courts on the Jewish sex killer Leo Max Frank by a group of prominent Georgia men who were outraged by the commutation of his sentence by a corrupt governor, and last month was the 100th anniversary of that commutation. That Governor’s name, which will live forever as an example of subservience to Jewish power and Jewish propaganda, was John Marshall Slaton (pictured above).
Here’s what happened:
In 1913, the Atlanta president of the Jewish B’nai B’rith, sweatshop operator Leo M. Frank, was convicted of strangling to death a 13-year-old White girl in his employ — Mary Phagan — after sexually assaulting her while they were alone on the second floor of the National Pencil Company, of which Frank was the superintendent and part-owner. Jewish hyper-ethnocentrism, networking, and financial and press power came into play almost immediately after Frank’s arrest and indictment.
The case became a national cause celebre for the Jews, with headlines in major newspapers from San Francisco to New York City trumpeting Frank’s “innocence” and the barbarity of the White Southerners who dared to convict him. Fat-headed Whites who believed the fictional newspaper stories of the “persecuted” member of “God’s Chosen” were recruited to help in the crusade, and the equivalent of many millions of dollars was raised in his defense.
With this Jewish money, Frank hired the finest and most expensive team of lawyers ever seen in the state of Georgia, yet he was still held by the Coroner’s Jury — still charged by the Grand Jury — and still convicted at trial. He hired another expensive legal team — and then another, even including the leading Jewish lawyers in the USA — and appealed his conviction to the Georgia Court of Appeals and then to the Supreme Court of the United States. In every case, his conviction was upheld.
With this Jewish money, other things were procured as well: Someone planted a bloody shirt at the home of the factory’s Black night watchman, Newt Lee, at a time when both Lee and Frank were suspects in the killing. Someone paid a long list of witnesses to leave town or change their stories in ways that favored Frank. Someone paid an unscrupulous attorney named Felder to fraudulently present himself as working for the Phagan family and attempt to illegally obtain evidence and documents in the possession of the police. Someone paid a Pinkerton detective named W.D. McWorth — and the Pinkertons were openly in the pay of Frank and the other Jewish owners of the pencil factory — to “discover” a bloody club and what was said to be part of Mary Phagan’s pay envelope near the ground floor elevator where the factory’s Black sweeper, Jim Conley, was keeping watch for Leo Frank that day — but the fake was discovered and McWorth dismissed. Someone paid the Pinkertons’ great rivals — the infamous Burns detective agency — to take over when the Pinkertons refused to “cooperate” as the Jews had hoped, and in particular refused to withhold evidence from the police until Leo Frank’s attorneys had had a look at it.
And, in 1915, when all the appeals had failed and the integrity of the jury’s verdict that Leo Frank was guilty and that Leo Frank should hang had been upheld by every jury, every judge, and every court with jurisdiction over the case, there was only one place left for the Jews to try: the outgoing Governor of Georgia, John Slaton. In addition to their glittering wealth and generous largesse, the pro-Frank forces had another ace up their sleeve with John M. Slaton: He was a leading partner in the partly-Jewish law firm that defended Frank and had been so for many months. Even though he could not practice law while governor during his term of two years, for some reason or other the law firm that was defending Frank — and which doubtless was receiving a huge portion of the money raised in Frank’s defense and would receive even more as “bonuses” for each desired outcome attained — sought out Governor Slaton as a partner.
With Leo Frank’s execution date imminent and all appeals exhausted, and with Governor Slaton leaving office in just days to be replaced by a man without such connections, the time was now or never. One would think that an ethical governor would have nothing to do with, and would not even consider, interfering in the case of a man who was a client of his own law firm, especially when the issue could be handled by the incoming governor, who had no conflict of interest, and who would be in office in less than a week. You would think that a rational governor would know that his political career — and Slaton very much wanted to be become United States Senator from Georgia — would be over for life if he committed such an ethical lapse. It would take some kind of overwhelming consideration for a man in Slaton’s position to interfere in the Frank case. But interfere he did.
On June 21, giving a patently specious string of reasons, he commuted the death sentence of Leo Frank to life in prison. He said his conscience impelled him and that he could not live with himself if there was even the possibility that he would have the blood of an innocent man on his hands. That, if true — though it hardly sounds like the reasoning process of the same man who blithely ignored the commutation requests of several non-Jews while in office — would truly constitute an overwhelming consideration. But you will forgive me when I tell you that the evidence suggests an overwhelming “consideration” of a quite different kind.
Attorney Luther Z. Rosser, lead counsel for Leo Frank, who had argued his case before the jury, paid a very interesting visit to the home of his law partner Governor Slaton just before the commutation decision was made. For reasons which might not seem too obscure, he arrived late at night. For the same reasons, he approached the mansion by a back street, parked several blocks away, and entered the grounds on foot via a dark alley. He did not leave until well after midnight.
I quote from Watson’s The Celebrated Case of Leo Frank:
What Rosser said to Slaton in this clandestine meeting, will never be known; but it was noticed that next day the lamentations of the Jews were replaced by sly grins, and offers to bet ten to one that Slaton would commute!
Read the following, not as evidence of Frank’s guilt, or as proof of Slaton’s hypocrisy and perfidy, but as a side-light on events in Atlanta:
Atlanta, June 22.
Mr. Tom Watson:
What I tell you I know to be true as God is light, and it is this: The Jews all gathered at the home of the Seligs, on Washington Street, where Frank’s wife and father-in-law live, and from 8 till 12 o’clock, they had a regular old-time Belshazzar feast. They drank wine, high balls, whiskey and beer, and smoked and sang, and had music; and there were not less than a hundred and twenty automobiles full of Jews that came there from the time I say to the late hour.
Now, they all knew Slaton had commuted Frank, and were celebrating it.
And I know a policeman who was on the streets yesterday, to make out like controlling the mob, and he told me he passed the jail every night at 12 o’clock for a year, and going on duty, and never saw a light in the office of the Sheriff till Saturday night, and he was surprised to see the Sheriff sitting there like he was waiting for somebody, and suddenly a Jew came running up and tapped on the window, and the Sheriff raised the window and the Jew whispered to him, and the Sheriff smiled, and then the Jew ran off and the Sheriff closed the window. Now, that showed conspiracy, and that Slaton was working with the Jews all the time.
In other words, the Jews knew — some on Friday, and some on Saturday — that Slaton had commuted the sentence.
John Slaton did not announce his commutation order until Sunday.
After you hear my words and read the sources I have provided on the Frank case, I invite you to watch the NBC television program about John M. Slaton, from their 1964 series Profiles in Courage. I’ll embed the video from that program so you can watch it right here on nationalvanguard.org:
After watching that production, do you recognize John Slaton? — do you recognize the Leo Frank sex killing case? — do you recognize the people of Georgia? No. You cannot. The program — like almost all Establishment works on the Leo Frank case — is a vicious, poisonous cocktail of lies designed to obscure the truth, exonerate and even ennoble a murderer, make the odious and the sleazy into “heroes,” and demonize the real heroes — real heroes like Tom Watson.
Thomas E. Watson’s contemporary series of exposés on the corruption and mendacity of the Leo Frank machine is one of the classics of American muckraking. Watson was an intelligent, cultured, and literate man, author of highly-regarded biographies of Jackson and Jefferson and a history of France. In the NBC episode, he is played by a sweaty, greasy-looking Hollywood “heavy” Michael Constantine, who, as Watson, openly admits his corruption and talks in “cracker” dialect, wearing a heavily rumpled suit without a tie, putting his feet up on Slaton’s desk, and wiping his dripping nose on his sleeve. We get it, Mr. Director, we get it. No such meeting between Watson and Slaton ever took place.
The program is anything but subtle. In the opening scene, another sweaty White man, with a crazed look on his face and a very bad set of teeth, stands on the courthouse roof and screams for the head of Leo Frank to a torch-lit crowd of Whites while the Frank verdict is about to be read. No such rally ever took place — it is an invention of the filmmakers.
Inside the courthouse, Judge Roan, the presiding judge in the case, mutters to an associate that “Frank’s innocence has been proven to a mathematical certainty” — something that he never said.
The noble Slaton is played by Jewish actor Walter Matthau, and Slaton is portrayed as a deeply moral man of principle throughout. The screen Watson admits to the screen Slaton that Watson’s newspaper, the Jeffersonian, is “written for the great unwashed,” and that “you bathe too much.”
Almost unbelievably, the program asserts that the Black night watchman and early suspect, Newt Lee, was in the pencil factory building when the murder was committed — and that the factory sweeper Jim Conley, another Black man falsely accused by the pro-Frank forces, confessed to the murder to his own attorney. Needless to say, none of this ever happened.
Jewish screenwriter Don Mankiewicz was the author of this bundle of lies. It was made by Saudek Associates, and aired on Robert Sarnoff’s Jewish-owned NBC. The executive in charge of production was the Jew Bernie Weinraub.
The producers of this program were so sloppy — and so contemptuous of their viewers, who they evidently think will believe even the crudest and most obvious lies — that they even get Leo Max Frank’s name wrong, calling him “Leo A. Frank.”
Thus is history rewritten by liars. Thus is the public fooled into hating those who try to save them, and worshipping those, like John M. Slaton, who have sold them out.
It is satisfying to reflect upon the fact that John M. Slaton, quite contrary to the liars at NBC, was so reviled for his act of evil that he had to flee the state. He did not return to stay for nearly a decade. Tom Watson was elected to the Senate seat that Slaton had coveted, and it was only recently that the Jews were able to force the great writer and statesman’s statue to be removed from the state capitol.
We have now passed the centenary of that moment in US and Georgia history when the leading citizens of that state re-took control of the legal and judicial process and carried out the sentence of the court — the sentence of the judge — and the sentence of the people — on Jewish sex killer Leo Max Frank.
