James Benjamin True Jr. photo (July 1, 1880[1] - September 25, 1946)[2] of Arlington, Virginia was a Washington DC news correspondent and a defendant in the Great Sedition Trial of 1944. Chief Justice Eicher at the trial gave True a severance due to his poor health.

He was employed with the Chicago Tribune from 1917 to 1919.[3]

He started James True Associates in Washington DC in July 1933[4] and began to publish Industrial Control Reports, Americans Everywhere and the Dope Letter[5] (at the time dope was American slang meaning “inside story” or “scoop”). His appeal was largely to anti-Jewish businessmen. His offices were located in the National Press Building.

True along with Michael Ahearn organized America First, Inc. inaugurating the political term "America First" in August 1934.[6]

In 1935 he invented the “kike-killer” truncheon (Pat. No. 2,026,077)[7] which was a short round club made in two sizes: one for men and a smaller size for women.[8]

He later moved to Florida to assist with the magazine Nation and Race.

James B. True was buried September 28, 1946 at Oak Hill Cemetery in Washington DC in an unmarked grave.[9] He was sixty-six years old.
