……”Governor John Slaton and the Leo Frank Case”
American Dissident Voices broadcast of July 25, 2015
by Kevin Alfred Strom
2015 IS THE YEAR of Jewish failure to contain and control the Leo Frank narrative, a narrative they very much want to control in this, the 100th year after Frank’s death. For in the case of Leo Frank we find century-old confirmation of a pattern — a pattern of Jewish sexual license, Jewish racial solidarity even in the case of a Jewish murderer, Jewish corruption of American law and government via money and via media control, and unrelenting use of that media control to distort our history and pervert the truth.
Next month is the 100th 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 célèbre 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.
Mary Phagan, 13
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, who 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.
I’ll speak again about the Leo Frank case in three weeks, on 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.

…..Carolyn Yeager on Jew efforts to get the sadistic sex killer off
For 100 years, ADL has worked to reverse justice in the murder of little Mary Phagan
Abraham Foxman (left) was paid handsomely by the ADL to protect and defend Jew criminals and perverts like Leo Frank (right).
by Carolyn Yeager
On July 20, 2015, Abe Foxman ended his “50 years of service” to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), twenty-eight of them spent as National Director. The League itself was founded in October 1913 (an exact day is not given) as a direct reaction to the guilty verdict delivered on Leo M. Frank in Atlanta, Georgia two months earlier, on August 25, 1913.
Though it’s played down now, the fact that a prominent Jew was exposed as a pervert rapist-murderer, and that the entire nation had followed the sensational trial testimony, horrified the Jewish establishment. Leo Frank was President of the Atlanta chapter of B’nai B’rith*, and was the son-in-law of the wealthy Jewish Selig family of that city. And now thisprivileged Jew, one of their own, was scheduled to BE HANGED for the murder of a 13-year old Christian girl who worked at the National Pencil Factory of which he was supervisor.
This could not be allowed to continue.
Therefore, the “Anti-Defamation League” was created by the Independent Order of B’nai B’rith as an activist arm of the New York City-based organization, charged with the following mission:
“To stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people.”
The League doesn’t distinguish between the truth or falsehood of what is being said about Jews, because, to it, Jews are always innocent.
Mary Phagan autopsy photo shows the gouge in her neck from the cord that was wrapped around her neck to strangle her.
Shortly after Frank was convicted by the jury, a nationwide campaign to exonerate him was inaugurated by Jewish interests. Adolph Ochs, Jewishpublisher of The New York Times, was the most active; he teamed withA.D. Lasker, an “advertising genius” to carry out a number of publicity campaigns. Another New York newspaper The Sun published the headline “Jews Fight to Save Leo Frank.” That was exactly accurate.
The entire argument used by the Jews, then and now, consists of the magical charge of “anti-Semitism**” which works in every case. In the case of Leo Frank, they insist it poisoned the minds of the Southern population against him. In this way they avoid the subject of the evidence.
Frank’s high priced lawyers appealed the case for two years, up to the U.S. Supreme Court, and no fault or error in the trial proceedings, and no anti-Semitism, was unearthed. But Jews don’t rely on only one plan of action. On the eve of the day Frank was scheduled to hang, outgoing Georgia Gov. John Slaton commuted his sentence to life in prison, in spite of the fact that it was a conflict-of-interest. Slaton was a law partner in the same firm as Frank’s lead counsel, Jew Luther Z. Rosser. Thus, Slaton commuted the sentence of a man being represented by his own law firm!
But in commuting Frank’s death sentence, Slaton admitted he found “no error of law” in the trial, that the evidence submitted was sufficient to sustain the guilty verdict, and that any charge of racial prejudice was “unfair” … but he still thought there was an element of doubt felt by many. This “doubt” however, was not felt by the newly elected incoming governor, Nathaniel Harris, who supported Frank’s conviction and execution. Nor was it shared by the public, which was outraged by the move. A mob gathered at Slaton’s home, and he and his wife felt the need to move out of Georgia immediately after the new governor was sworn in.
This was not anti-Semitism. This was a judgment of the people against taking too lightly the life of 13-year-old working girl . Prominent men of the community organized themselves into the “Knights of Mary Phagan,” openly planning to kidnap Frank from prison. Populist politician Tom Watson wrote in his magazine, “Lynch law is a good sign; it shows that a sense of justice lives among the people.”
As you know, the kidnapping took place and Leo Frank was lynched on the morning of August 17, 1915 outside of the town of Marietta where Mary Phagan had lived with her mother, stepfather and siblings. And it is said that still today …
It’s the only known lynching of a Jew in American history.
From that time to present day, the ADL and the rest of the U.S. Jewish establishment has sustained the single-minded intention to reverse the findings of that trial, to exonerate Leo Frank fully, to have the state of Georgia proclaim him to be an innocent man who was another Jewish victim of anti-Semitism in America.
The lynching of Leo Frank by the committee of 28 responsible citizens.
As you may know, the ADL’s secret of success is that they never give up, and they take every opportunity to make progress toward their goal, no matter how small or seemingly unimportant.
In 1982, the ADL of B’nai B’rith, the American Jewish Committee, Atlanta Jewish Federation and numerous other Jewish organizations used some “new information” to push for a Posthumous Pardon and Exoneration for Leo M. Frank for the murder of Mary Ann Phagan. The petition was denied on December 22, 1983. [enlarge letter]
In 2003, on the 90th anniversary of the Anti-Defamation League’s founding, a monument dedicated by the ADL was placed near the inside entrance of the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Queens, NY where Leo Frank is buried.. It reads:
Leo Frank: The trial of Leo Frank in 1913 was motivated by the rampant antisemitism of the time. The founding of the Anti-Defamation League that same year was motivated by a passion to eradicate such injustice and bigotry.Despite his innocence, Frank was abducted from jail in 1915 and lynched. ADL remembers the victim Leo Frank and rededicates itself to ensuring there will be no more victims of injustice and intolerance.
Though it is a lie, the charge of “rampant antisemitism” is what the ADL is determined to associate with any Jewish wrongdoing across the breadth of this land, and to make it “the unquestioned truth” of the matter. The ADL is on the move to make the Jewish narrative on EVERYTHING the only narrative that exists This is what they mean when they say they want to “Stop the defamation of the Jewish people.” It means that any accusation against a Jew is defamation, and will not be allowed to stand.
In 2008, a Leo Frank Lynching Site historical marker was put up near the site of the 1915 lynching in Marietta. The lynching marker read:
Near this location on August 17, 1915, Leo M. Frank, the Jewish superintendent of the National Pencil Company in Atlanta, was lynched for the murder of thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory employee. A highly controversial trial fueled by societal tensions and anti-Semitism resulted in a guilty verdict in 1913. After Governor John M. Slaton commuted his sentence from death to life in prison, Frank was kidnapped from the state prison in Milledgeville and taken to Phagan’s hometown of Marietta where he was hanged before a local crowd. Without addressing guilt or innocence, and in recognition of the state’s failure to either protect Frank or bring his killers to justice***, he was granted a posthumous pardon in 1986.
Erected by the Georgia Historical Society, the Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation, and Temple Kol Emeth.
Because of roadway renovation, the marker had to be temporarily taken down, but now a new historical marker has been put up on the property of the Atlanta History Center, whose executive vice president is a man named Michael Rose. The new marker was put up on June 17; it honors Gov. John M. Slaton’s commutation of Leo Frank’s sentence. Another of the three organizations sponsoring this marker is the Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation. So two out of three, at least, are Jewish. The writing on this Slaton marker includes these words:
Concerned by the sensationalized atmosphere and circumstantial evidence that led to the notorious 1913 conviction of Jewish businessman Leo Frank in the murder ofteenager Mary Phagan, Slaton granted Frank clemency in June 1915. Slaton’s commutation of Frank’s death sentence drew national attention but hostile local backlash resulted in Frank’s lynching in August 1915, and the end of Slaton’s political career
What could be more dismissive of 13-year-old Mary Phagan than to call her a teenager? There were no “teenagers” in 1913 [the term was invented later] but there were many girls from modest families who, from the age of 12 on, left school and worked full time in factories and mills for something like ten cents an hour. In any case, a teenager can be any age from 13 to 19! This is a good example of how Jews will sacrifice even Gentile children on the alter of protecting guilty, criminal Jews.
National Pencil Company at 37-41 South Forsyth Street in 1913. Frank’s office was on the 2nd floor front, right where the advertising sign says “For the Blood.”
Another of the tribe who worked to erect the 2008 marker at the lynching site is Rabbi Steve Lebow of Temple Kol Emeth in East Cobb (pictured at right). Lebow says he’s trying to get the lynching marker out of storage for a centennial event planned for next month.
Rabbi Lebow is very active in the cause of Leo Frank, and says of the pardon,“That’s not enough.” He wants Frank to be declared innocent and will ask the Georgia General Assembly, Cobb County and the city of Marietta to exonerate Frank.
This Lebow is a real character.
His specialty is officiating at Jewish andinterfaith weddings. I’m sorry if this article devolves into comedy – it’s not my fault.
Rabbi Lebow in one of his typical “touchy-feely” pictures taken with a Jewish bride whose wedding he officiated.
Rabbi Lebow is also circulating a petition on the Internet but there is no groundswell of support. From reading it, I conjecture that he is not too well educated. He doesn’t write well and he doesn’t know the facts about the trial either. He falsely states:
Frank was subsequently convicted on false testimony, given on the stand by many suspect to be the real murderer, Jim Conley.
Frank’s trial, from beginning to end, was a legal farce.Witnesses were coerced to say they had seen Leo Frank with the girl that day. Then many of those witnesses later recanted their story. The forensic evidence had been “cooked”. The jury was instructed that the girl’s hair and blood had been found next to Frank’s office.[Instructed by whom?]
Convinced that the entire trial had been a sham, GovernorSlaton mounted an independent investigation of the crime. Slaton’s conclusion was inescapable; Frank had been falsely accused and then wrongly convicted. [No, Slaton said he read over the entire trial transcript and found no errors and no reason to disagree with the verdict. The opposite of what Lebow states!]
This is the type of “reasoning” and “facts” that we get from the Leo Frank defenders, all the way up to the ADL and Abe Foxman. They have no valid arguments; they rely on victimology and the old complaint of anti-Semitism … and on downright lies.
More to come: Next month, on Monday, August 17, we will mark the 100th anniversary of the lynching of Leo Frank by a committee of 28 respectable, responsible men from the community. The list includes a former Georgia governor, Joseph Mackey Brown; former mayor of Marietta and later president of the Georgia Senate, Eugene Herbert Clay; the Mayor of Marietta at the time, E. P. Dobbs; lawyer and banker, part of the Marietta delegation at Governor Slaton’s clemency hearing, Moultrie McKinney Sessions; several current and former Cobb County sheriffs, and other professional men.
This was not a rag-tag band of ne’r-do-wells, and that’s why they were not prosecuted. It was Gov. Slaton who had to leave the state because he took the law into his own hands in order to please or placate the Jews. How much was he paid? ~
