F. D. Roosevelt at Yalta, Feb. 10-11, 1945--the cold reality

A. Harriman, Roosevelt's special representative to the Soviet Union and a major Wall Streeter in government and in Skull and Bones secret society, who had smoothed the way for the Western handover of Eastern Europe covertly to Stalin, was by Feb. 10th, 1945 at it again.  This time it was "1) to change Soviet leasehold of Port Arthur and Dairen to international free ports, and 2) to put the Manchurian railway under the joint operation of a Chinese-Soviet commission, and 3) not to dispose finally of these two matters in which China...(was owner) without the concurrence of the Generalissimo (Chiang Kai-shek)."
In addition to Harriman and Stalin, FDR relied on his other Wall Street adviser H. Hopkins as usual and dispensed with all others.  China Kai-shek was ignored completely.
On March 1, 1945 before a joint session of Congress FDR "resorted to mendacity in this report.  He realized that the American people would not relish the news of a complete sellout to Stalin with reference to our Far Eastern policy.  In his address before Congress he stated that the Yalta Cnference 'had concerned itself only with the European war and with the political problems of Europe and not with the Pacific war' -Congressional Record, 3-1-1945."...There would be no Senate rejection of any treaty he had made.  Instead he chose the system of making the peace (for the first time in American history) through an Executive Agreement that did not have to be passed upon by the Senate (constitutionally, though The Constitution states that treaties must  go through the Senate)."                 -Anthony Kubek:  How the Far East Was Lost, Regnery Co., Chicago, 1963, pp. 106-10           my parentheses added      -r, mt. shasta
