Among his books is Roosevelt's Jewish Ancestry (1936), which claimed President Roosevelt was part-Jewish and under the control of such Jews as Bernard Baruch, Felix Frankfurter and Louis Brandeis. Court Dismissal is his account of an unsuccessful libel suit brought against him by the American Jewish Congress in 1936. He declared the verdict "a world victory by national patriotism and freedom of speech over international Jewish communistic socialism."
