Disraeli and infarct, Served as Prime Minister on several occasions in the 19th Century. 1804 – 1881.
Very close to Queen Victoria, as they were both close to the Rothschilds.. He had a complicated relationship with his Judaism. His father chose to have him baptized into the Church of England on the eve of his bar mitzvah. This was no doubt because he had been ‘tapped’ by the Rothschilds at a young age and therefore had to be allegeable to sit in the British parliament.
His father was Isaac D’rsaeli. They were Sephardic Jews of Italian background. Their grandfather came to Britain in the late 1700’s. Isaac the father didn’t take hid Judaism seriously. Or so the legend goes.
Disraeli eventually married Marry-Anne Lewis, who was twelve years his senior. In 1828 to 1831 he travelled in the Middle East.
Disraeli was always a slave of the Rothschilds. With Lionel Rothschild, Disraeli was intimate in his adolescence, and in his letters to his sister he reveals how Lionel gave him advice and financial assistance.
Disraeli character in ‘Coningsby’ Sidonia was based on the Rothschilds, most likely Nathan Rothschild.
William Ewart Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli were at odds.
Gladstone’s rise in political circles was dynamic.
Disraeli had a problem, he couldn’t get into parliament, he needed a prominent backer, and he found one in Lord Lyndhurst John Copley, 1st Baron Lyndhurst. Lyndhurst, who was financially backed by the Rothschilds, chose to hold a dinner in Disraeli honour, the dinner party was held to give Disraeli in introduction some of political movers and shakers at the time. This was the first time Disraeli and Gladstone met, and right from the start they didn’t get along.
Disraeli maiden speech in the House of Commons was view as a disaster. Disraeli recovery was quite swift, and within a few years, he was viewed as one of the rising stars of Robert Peel’s conservative party. HE was furious that he did not receive a job in Robert Peel’s government. So in response, he took the opposite side in the debate over the ‘corn laws’.
The Corn Laws kept high tariffs on imported corn so the buyer would be more inclined towards British grown corn at more attractive prices. This ran contrary to Peels feeling on free trade who felt that the market needed to be more open.
Disraeli didn’t know much about the Corn Laws but chose to oppose Peel out of spite. Disraeli was poised and dignified as he tore apart Peels argument for the Corn Laws. He the only orator capable of taking on the great Robert Peel and through a series of exception speeches destroyed Peel’s arguments. In the end, Peel got his way over the Corn Laws but resigned as both Prime Minister and the Tory party leader. Peel didn’t just leave, roles he left the party and took all of the front benches with him including Gladstone, and they formed a new party, The Peelites.
This left the conservatives in a difficult position. With all of the front bench gone and with them the best speakers, there was no-one left to lead them. Disraeli was the obvious choice. He was poised, much more intelligent than rest of the party and such a wonderful orator.
The Chancellor and Under-Treasurer of Her Majesty's Exchequer, commonly known as the Chancellor of the Exchequer, is a senior official within the Government of the United Kingdom and head of Her Majesty's Treasury. The Tory’s had regained power and in 1852 Disraeli was appointed by Lord Darby, The new Prime Minister, to the role much the desired by Gladstone.
Disraeli did not revel in his new role, Money and finances help little interest to him. He eventually made a very poor speech where he attacked the poor as the mainstream of revenue for the taxation and revenue-raising for the state. A move that went down very poorly with the conservative base of the party, which was the poor. Gladstone’s attack on the Disraeli’s bill was about to turn their private feud into a public one.
Disraeli responds with a skilful speak that win him the favour of his fellow conservatives. Then Gladstone steps up to speak and tore Disraeli apart, he destroyed Disraeli’s budget. The government loses the debate. The Tory government fell and a new government took its place one made up of Wigs, radicals, and Peelites the three parties which would soon merge to form the Liberal Party. And the new Chancellor of the Exchequer was William Gladstone. Gladstone lost his job due to controversial exchanges with prostitutes.
In the summer of 1852 British politicians became very concerned about what was happening on the Mediterranean island of Corfu. The island itself was governed by England many of the inhabitants. were unhappy about it and they wanted the island to be managed by Greece. Violence had occurred along with a small number of deaths. The British Prime Minister on the island had failed to seek this out. So a decision was made back in London to dispatch a special emissary to the island. Someone whose job it would be to review its system of government and sought out its unrest.
Disraeli, on the other hand, was ecstatic, he had engineered the whole Corfu experience. He had a friend dangle the job in Corfu in front of Gladstone in a way to get him away from central power. When Gladstone had volunteered to become High Commissioner he had sacrificed his parliamentary seat. When Gladstone realised the mistake he’d made he struggled to get out of the mess. It was through one of his mentors Lord Aberdeen that Gladstone was able to smooth things over with the Queen and get back to London and win back his Seat.
In 1858, the great British warship Terrible docked and out emerged William Gladstone. It appeared that there was a lull in his life and he felt that this was a good way to build up the CV. Right from the start things started going wrong. It was apparent that he didn’t know how to inspect a guard of honour and he totally offended the High Commissioner. Gladstone wrote the queen and a said get rid of the High Commissioner I’m the man for the job, the Queen agreed.
Baron Lionel de Rothschild had been returned as a Member of the House of Commons several times, but was not allowed to sit because he would not take the necessary Christian oath. It was Disraeli, under Rothschild influence, who pushed forward with the Emancipation Bill which was passed into law in 1858 and by which Rothschild was at last allowed to take his seat. Disraeli directly supported the Bill, and thus Aliens were at last able to “represent” Britons in the House of Commons.
In questions affecting the emancipation of the Jews, says Egon Caesar Conte Corti, in his “Reign of the House of Rothschild,” Lionel Rothschild and Disraeli were “so much of the same opinion that the Conservative Minister almost always voted against his own Party.”
What Gladstone was able to do in the early 1860’s was to remodel himself as the Great defender of ‘ordinary people’. What he did as the Chancellor of the Exchequer in Palmerston’s liberal government was to endear himself to the people of the sprawling suburbs that that had grown up around Britain’s major cities. Gaining himself the nickname, the peoples William. He reduced all kinds of taxes on imports firstly because he made bread much cheaper. He also scrapped the duty on newspapers, usually referred to as the tax on knowledge. In these two ways, Gladstone appeals to new auditions.
Gladstone gave tours around the country giving an hour to an hour and s half speeches. What the people who came to see Gladstone really wanted to hear was about changed to the voting system. The middle class and working class didn’t have a vote. Gladstone didn’t agree with them. He didn’t think the people were ready for it. In 1864, Gladstone decided that a modest increase in the people who were allowed to vote should be allowed. Eighteen months later having been kick out of his Oxford seat for supporting voting reform, Gladstone decided to capitalise on his popularity in Manchester by becoming the attempted the Minister for South Lancashire.
In 1866 Gladstone introduced a voting reform bill into parliament, it was shouted down in particular by Disraeli. However in 1967 Disraeli’s Tory party introduced an even more radical reform bill into parliament. Within months Disraeli’s reform bill was passed with Tory’s taking all the credit.
In February 1868, The Prime Minister Lord Darby was forced to resign because of ill health, the new Prime Minister was Benjamin Disraeli. Disraeli’s conservative party was outnumbered in the House of Commons and therefore any bill brought by the Tory’s was immediately shot down by the Liberals. Disraeli called an election. He hoped to increase his majority but that’s not what happened.
It seemed that despite the new voting system introduced by Disraeli they voters had turned against him and elected Gladstone Prime Minister. Gladstone received the message from Queen Victoria that he was to form a government. His immediate response was “my mission is to pacify Ireland”. All of Ireland was ruled by the British. Catholic dissatisfaction at Protestant rule was causing constant friction. Over the next six years, he and his government brought forward several pieces of legislation aimed at settling Ireland.
Disraeli won his next election by appealing to the working class. Over the next few years, he introduced a wide range of reforms aimed at making life easier for working class people, including improvements in public health. Social reform was at the head of Disraeli’s second term. He also enhanced the British emperor by seizing control of the Suez Canal from the French. And he supported his good name with Queen by giving her the name, Queen Empresses.
In 1875 D In 1875, the Khedive of Egypt, forced by financial stringency, was anxious to sell his interest in the Suez Canal. Disraeli must have known of this at once through his friend and master Lionel Rothschild. Disraeli then bought the outstanding shares. Parliament was not sitting at the time, and Disraeli borrowed £4,000,000 from his colleagues the Rothschilds, who made a profit of about £500,000, which no doubt earned for Disraeli a considerable commission. It was, of course, to the Jewish interest that Britain should hold the Suez Canal (until the Jews got Palestine out of WWII). Disraeli had written to the Queen saying, “We have scarcely time to breathe, we must carry the matter through.” He was very, very anxious that Rothschilds should handle the loan.
Disraeli’s haste in awarding the contract to the Rothschilds was a way of cutting out all other potential bidders. The interest in Britain having control over the Suez Cannel would have been huge. Interest would have come from a11 quarter, however the Rothschilds with their inside knowledge had the front running and the deal was signed before anyone else could have say in it. The Queens agreement in the matter just shows how indentured to the Rothschilds the royal family was.
In 1876 in the Ottoman Empire, starting in Istanbul were the empire had spread out over the years.to embrace a large part of Africa and Eastern Europe. In April of that year a nationalist revolt broke out in Bulgaria one of the empire's most venerable territories. The Ottoman ruler responded by using massive force. The Turks excited indignation in the Western Nations by atrocities on Bulgarian Christians; those atrocities may easily have been excited by the judicious payment of Rothschild money to the Turks. Some 15 thousand people were thought to be killed. When news of this reached Britain Disraeli responded with a response that left his followers angry and confused.
Disraeli misjudged the reports very badly. He dismissed them. It was a gift to his opponent.
Angry at the lack of response from Disraeli, Gladstone wrote an angry pamphlet entitled ‘Bulgarian Horrors and the Question of the East’. It is a blistering attack on the Turks and on Disraeli. It was written within four days and within a month had sold 200 thousand copies.
In 1877 war broke out within the Balkans. Russia had used the Bulgarian atrocities as an excuse for invading Ottoman territories, something they’d been longing to do for years. The fighting went the Russians way and all of a sudden it looked as though the Ottoman Empire might collapse. Russia looked like threatening Britain’s position on the world stage. Then Rothschild stepped in, and the Western Powers, his agents, forced Russia to confer with them in Berlin. Disraeli himself went there to represent Britain!
In 1878, Disraeli threatened and bullied the Russians to a conference in Berlin. It is known as the Conference of Berlin. And it determined the shape of England right up until WWI. Otto Von Bismarck mark pointed out that the show was being run by the Jews. The Russians had agreed to partisans the lands in a certain way they decided they wanted more lands. Disraeli, as a Rothschild agent, used his friendship with Napoleon III to bring France and Britain together against Russia, so that the two nations might do the Zionists dirty work and help to separate the West from Russia. Disraeli threatened the Russians that if he didn’t get what he wanted then he would head back to England and declare war on Russia. The Russians relented.
Disraeli returned to London with huge fanfare. However, 1897 saw the worst indicators for Britain in 100 years, it was the worst harvest, agriculture went into crisis, unemployment skyrocket and added to this Disraeli’s great strength foreign affair he lost his magic touch.
In 1880 Gladstone was back in power. With no prominent political upstarts to challenge him, he was able to rule as Prime Minister for the next 16 years including two additional terms until he chose to retire at age 85.
The person most seriously affected was Disraeli, in 1881 he caught a chill it developed into bronchitis and from there he died
