Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions are ramp­ing up pur­chas­es of key Amer­i­can com­pa­nies. Always bear in mind the con­trol of cor­po­rate Ger­many by the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, the eco­nom­ic com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground. Fun­da­men­tal here, as well, is the work of Dorothy Thomp­son, who (writ­ing of the Third Reich’s plans for glob­al dom­i­na­tion in 1940), relat­ed that the mas­ters of Ger­man indus­try, finance and pol­i­tics saw eco­nom­ic con­trol lead­ing auto­mat­i­cal­ly to polit­i­cal con­trol.

FTR #370 Dutch Treat: More about the Thyssen/Bush Banking Connection

“This pro­gram sup­ple­ments pre­vi­ous dis­cus­sion of the Bush fam­i­ly’s Nazi finan­cial her­itage.”

FTR #1058, FTR #1059 and FTR #1060 The Christian West, Parts 1, 2 and 3: Contextual Foundation of the Jim DiEugenio Interviews

Review­ing past mate­r­i­al in order to refresh and rein­force under­stand­ing of the his­tor­i­cal con­text and foun­da­tion of the recent Jim DiEu­ge­nio inter­views, this pro­gram reviews infor­ma­tion rel­e­vant to the con­cept of the Chris­t­ian West. “The Chris­t­ian West” is explained in the descrip­tion for AFA #37: ” . . . . When it became clear that the armies of the Third Reich were going to be defeat­ed, it opened secret nego­ti­a­tions with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the West­ern Allies. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives on both sides belonged to the transat­lantic finan­cial and indus­tri­al fra­ter­ni­ty that had active­ly sup­port­ed fas­cism. The thrust of these nego­ti­a­tions was the estab­lish­ment of The Chris­t­ian West. Viewed by the Nazis as a vehi­cle for sur­viv­ing mil­i­tary defeat, ‘The Chris­t­ian West’ involved a Hitler-less Reich join­ing with the U.S., Britain, France and oth­er Euro­pean nations in a transat­lantic, pan-Euro­pean anti-Sovi­et alliance. In fact, The Chris­t­ian West became a real­i­ty only after the ces­sa­tion of hos­til­i­ties. The de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many was abort­ed. Although a few of the more obvi­ous and obnox­ious ele­ments of Nazism were removed, Nazis were returned to pow­er at vir­tu­al­ly every lev­el and in almost every capac­i­ty in the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many. . . .”

Against the back­ground of Allen and John Fos­ter Dulles’ long, over­lap­ping careers as lawyers for Sul­li­van & Cromwell, as well as gov­ern­ment oper­a­tives, we note the deci­sive role of car­tels in pre­cip­i­tat­ing fas­cism and the posi­tion in the polit­i­cal and macro-eco­nom­ic land­scape of the events stem­ming from that.

Fascism, Globalization and Money Laundering: Review of the Bush Family Tree

In FTR #370, we dis­cussed the Bor­mann flight cap­i­tal orga­ni­za­tion and its links to the Bush and Thyssen fam­i­lies. In the after­math of the Jim DiEu­ge­nio inter­views, we were impressed by the nature of Clay Shaw’s con­nec­tions to the same milieu. ” . . . . But what did the Bush fam­i­ly know about their Nazi con­nec­tion and when did they know it? As senior man­agers of Brown Broth­ers Har­ri­man, they had to have known that their Amer­i­can clients, such as the Rock­e­fellers, were invest­ing heav­i­ly in Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions, includ­ing Thyssen’s giant Vere­inigte Stahlw­erke. . . . It should be recalled that in Jan­u­ary 1937, he hired Allen Dulles to ‘cloak’ his accounts. But cloak from whom? . . . . The cloak­ing oper­a­tion only makes sense in antic­i­pa­tion of a pos­si­ble war with Nazi Ger­many. If Union Bank was not the con­duit for laun­der­ing the Rockefeller’s Nazi invest­ments back to Amer­i­ca, then how could the Rock­e­feller-con­trolled Chase Man­hat­tan Bank end up own­ing 31% of the Thyssen group after the war? It should be not­ed that the Thyssen group (TBG) is now the largest indus­tri­al con­glom­er­ate in Ger­many, and with a net worth of more than $50 bil­lion dol­lars, one of the wealth­i­est cor­po­ra­tions in the world. TBG is so rich it even bought out the Krupp fam­i­ly, famous arms mak­ers for Hitler, leav­ing the Thyssens as the undis­put­ed cham­pi­on sur­vivors of the Third Reich. Where did the Thyssens get the start-up mon­ey to rebuild their empire with such speed after World War II? The enor­mous sums of mon­ey deposit­ed into the Union Bank pri­or to 1942 are the best evi­dence that Prescott Bush know­ing­ly served as a mon­ey laun­der­er for the Nazis. Remem­ber that Union Banks’ books and accounts were frozen by the U.S. Alien Prop­er­ty Cus­to­di­an in 1942 and not released back to the Bush fam­i­ly until 1951. At that time, Union Bank shares rep­re­sent­ing hun­dreds of mil­lions of dol­lars’ worth of indus­tri­al stocks and bonds were unblocked for dis­tri­b­u­tion. Did the Bush fam­i­ly real­ly believe that such enor­mous sums came from Dutch enter­pris­es? . . . . A for­tune this size could only have come from the Thyssen prof­its made from rearm­ing the Third Reich, and then hid­den, first from the Nazi tax audi­tors, and then from the Allies. The Bush­es knew per­fect­ly well that Brown Broth­ers was the Amer­i­can mon­ey chan­nel into Nazi Ger­many, and that Union Bank was the secret pipeline to bring the Nazi mon­ey back to Amer­i­ca from Hol­land. The Bush­es had to have known how the secret mon­ey cir­cuit worked because they were on the board of direc­tors in both direc­tions: Brown Broth­ers out, Union Bank in. . . .”

FTR # 914 and FTR #915; Interviews with Gerrard Williams (#‘s 1 and 2), Co-Author of “Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler”

FTR #‘s 914 and 915 fea­ture for­mer BBC and Reuters jour­nal­ist Ger­rard Williams, devel­op­ing mate­r­i­al he pre­sent­ed in his book (co-authored with mil­i­tary his­to­ri­an Simon Dun­stan) “Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler.”

An appar­ent deal between Sul­li­van & Cromwell attor­ney turned spy Allen Dulles and Mar­tin Bor­mann lies at the core of the Hitler escape, code-named “Aktion Feuer­land” (Oper­a­tion Land of Fire). In exchange for spar­ing the art loot­ed by the Reich and grant­i­ng the West­ern Allies access to Nazi mil­i­tary tech­nol­o­gy, Hitler’s escape along with those of Eva Braun, Mar­tin Bor­mann and Gestapo chief Hein­rich Muller were arranged. In addi­tion, the SS and Gestapo-staffed Rein­hard Gehlen spy out­fit was also one of the “car­rots” made avail­able to the West in this deal.

The poten­tial “sticks” were the full acti­va­tion of the Nazi Were­wolf gueril­las to make life mis­er­able for occu­pa­tion forces, the destruc­tion of the creme of West­ern art and a dis­in­for­ma­tion gam­bit pre­sent­ing a Nazi oper­a­tion to use U‑boat launched V‑1 mis­siles filled with nerve gas against New York. (The lat­ter drew U.S. Navy anti-sub­ma­rine forces away from the planned south­ern Atlantic route for Hitler’s U‑boat escape.)

Because Allen Dulles faced pros­e­cu­tion for his oper­a­tions on behalf of Third Reich indus­tri­al con­cerns, Dulles joined forces with Bor­mann. Using the exten­sive Nazi pres­ence in Argenti­na, Bor­mann and Muller suc­cess­ful­ly spir­it­ed Hitler and Eva Braun out of Ger­many.

Much of FTR #915 deals with the re-estab­lish­ment of Nazis in pow­er in the “new” Fed­er­al Repub­lic and the role of Mar­tin Bor­mann direct­ing that gov­ern­ment from afar. The role of the Nazis and the Gehlen spy out­fit in par­tic­u­lar in the Cold War is a pri­ma­ry focus of FTR #915.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: the foun­da­tion­al role of the German/American cor­po­rate links in the real­iza­tion of “Aktion Feuer­land;” the role of Eva Per­on (“Evi­ta”) as a Nazi spy pri­or to, and dur­ing, World War II; Evi­ta’s role as a func­tionary of the post­war Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work; the revenge tak­en by Muller on mem­bers of Juan and Eva Per­on’s con­tin­gent for extort­ing mon­ey from the Bor­mann net­work; famed espi­onage nov­el­ist Ian Flem­ing’s role as a British com­man­do secur­ing both art and Nazi mil­i­tary tech­nol­o­gy as the Nazi armies retreat­ed; main­stream press accounts of Hitler’s escape and post­war activ­i­ties; the con­tin­ued redac­tion and with­hold­ing of doc­u­ments about Hitler’s post­war pres­ence; death threats direct­ed against some of the authors’ sources; review of the Vat­i­can-linked “Rat­lines” in the escape of Nazi lumi­nar­ies; details of the fak­ing of the death of Mar­tin Bor­mann; the use of dou­bles for Hitler and Eva Braun in Aktion Feuer­land; pres­sure from right-wing Ger­man sources on the authors, attempt­ing to sup­press the inves­ti­ga­tion; the fak­ing of the “DNA test” on Bor­man­n’s “corpse”; the role of Nazis in man­ag­ing the Cold War.

FTR #846 Interview (#9) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This ninth inter­view fills in the details con­cern­ing a mys­te­ri­ous cast of char­ac­ters in Indone­sia who were inves­ti­gat­ing the late pres­i­dent Sukarno’s Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund. That fund appears to have derived from large amounts of World War II wealth stolen by Japan and Ger­many. Dr. Sos­ro Huso­do alleged in a book that a mys­te­ri­ous Nazi named Dr. Anton Poch was actu­al­ly Hitler. That alle­ga­tion has nev­er been proved, how­ev­er the sto­ries of Poch, Huso­do, Dr. Edi­son Damanik and an Indone­sian arms deal­er named Soeryo Goer­it­no are indica­tive of a mas­sive, ongo­ing cov­er-up of the polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic dynam­ics under­ly­ing their sit­u­a­tions. Expand­ing the scope of the inquiry to the cap­i­tal flows ass­so­ci­at­ed with the Third Reich, its post­war under­ground phase and insti­tu­tions asso­ci­at­ed with and/or evolv­ing from Nazism, the pro­grams sets forth a num­ber of con­sid­er­a­tions: the financ­ing of the post­war Ger­man eco­nom­ic mir­a­cle by Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions; the frus­tra­tion of the de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of cor­po­rate Ger­many by the Third Reich’s promi­nent Amer­i­can eco­nom­ic back­ers; the enor­mous scale of the Nazi eco­nom­ic dias­po­ra; the role of Klaus Bar­bie and his “Fiancees of Death” in ODESSA-relat­ed oper­a­tions; Colo­nia Dig­nidad and its role in laun­der­ing ODESSA mon­ey.

FTR #791 They May Not Know Art, but They Know What They Like

Explor­ing past and present, this pro­gram exam­ines a detailed, schol­ar­ly work­ing hypoth­e­sis by authors Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams con­cern­ing the pos­si­ble escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the oper­a­tion facil­i­tat­ing Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­o­gy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion. The ‘dis­cov­ery” of a huge cache of Nazi-loot­ed art in Munich in late 2013 is exam­ined against the back­ground of this alleged quid pro quo.

Rare, Mainstream Press Mention of U.S. Industrial Links to the Third Reich

It is com­par­a­tive­ly rare to see arti­cles in the main­stream press men­tion­ing the pro­found sup­port for Nazi Ger­many among Amer­i­can indus­tri­al­ists, financiers and polit­i­cal elite. A rare instance is a recent Dai­ly Mail arti­cle from the UK. In addi­tion to dis­cussing the links between the Thyssen indus­tri­al empire and the Bush fam­i­ly, the broad­cast under­scores I.G. Far­ben’s deci­sive role in the Ger­man war econ­o­my and its links to the largest Amer­i­can cor­po­ra­tions.

Repost: FTR #273 “B” as in “Bush,” “B” as in “Bormann”

Evi­dence that the Bush fam­i­ly may be the Amer­i­can point ele­ment of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion.
