I really feel bad for you, as you cont- inuaslly grasp at straws.
My man, the U.S. State Department described Hitler as "a moderate who stands, in 1937, between extremes of right and left" and they said that "Hitler must win or else the masses now supported by the disillusioned middle classes might turn to the left and that would be a tragedy" (Chomsky, 2000).
Moreover, U.S. companies such as Ford, GM, Standard Oil, Chase Nat- ional Bank, and ITT all loved had connections to his regime (Trading With The Enemy: An Exposť of the Nazi-American Money Plot 1933-1949, by Charles Higham (Delacorte Press, 1983).
In the case of Mussolini, the State Department hailed his "magnificent achievements" in Ethiopia, and his "astonishing contributions" to the welfare of the masses in Italy itself. FDR in 1939 wrote internally that the efforts of the man he had called 'that admirable Italian gentleman.'

The Immigration Restriction Act of 1924, was designed consciously to halt the immigration of supposedly "dysgenic" Italians and Jews, whose numbers had mushroomed during the period from 1900 to 1920.
Breckenridge Long, as head of the State Department, greatly reduced Jewish immigration to the US to control possible spies and sabot- eurs from coming to America. Long was willing to use illegal means to control the flow of Jewish refugees. He ordered American consulates to put every obstacle in the path of immigrants trying to come to America. Long centralized the final approval of all visas to the State Department office in America, making the process much slower and increasing the paperwork and time needed for approval.
