Aryan "Space Alien"

Aryan “Space Alien”

Introduction: Projecting what a Nazi victory in World War II might bring, Winston Churchill observed that “The world will be plunged into an abyss, made more sinister by the knights of perverted science.” In this program, we build on a long-running supposition that the Nazis did indeed win World War II, not on the battlefield but during what Prussian military theoretician Karl von Clausewitz called “The postwar.”

This broadcast is intended to be used in conjunction with L-1 and L-2: Might the future see Bormann network-controlled pharmaceuticals and/or foodstuffs used to disseminate “Aryan-friendly,” genetically-engineered binary pathogens to an already vulnerable and depleted humanity?

Might we see “Aryan” space aliens (“The Nine” or some manifestation of same) come down to earth to rule, disseminating some kind of “divine” or “extraterrestrial” eugenics doctrine? Might this be combined with a variety of theocratic Aryan supremacy religion?

With the Reinhard Gehlen spy outfit and the Project [Operation] Paperclip scientists having been incorporated into the very heart of the U.S. and Western national security establishments and with the Bormann capital network dominating the international cartel system that stands astride the international capital markets, what we have termed the Underground Reich did indeed prevail in the postwar period.

In this program, we take a look at what a Nazi future might look like.

Examining some of the paths of apparent evolution from Project Paperclip, we highlight the probable development of AIDS as a biological weapon and underscore the Nazi racist/eugenics overtones of various New Age philosophies.

Central to our analysis is a look at an excerpt from testimony before a House appropriations subcommittee that was drawing up the defense budget for the following year. (The hearings were in 1969.) The testimony discusses the possibility of using genetic engineering to produce a disease that would be “refractory” to the immune system. This is virtually the clinical definition of AIDS. It is worth noting that the project was funded, and just such a disease—AIDS—appeared in just the time frame posited. It is also worth noting that, in the 2002 edition of A Higher Form of Killing, this passage is omitted!!

. . . As long ago as 1962, forty scientists were employed at the U.S. Army biological warfare laboratories on full-time genetics research. ‘Many others,’ it was said, ‘appreciate the implications of genetics for their own work.’ The implications were made more specific that genetic engineering could solve one of the major disadvantages of biological warfare, that it is limited to diseases which occur naturally somewhere in the world. ‘Within the next 5 to 10 years, it would probably be possible to make a new infective micro-organism which could differ in certain important respects from any known disease-causing organisms. Most important of these is that it might be refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease.’ [Italics are Mr. Emory’s.] The possibility that such a ‘super germ’ may have been successfully produced in a laboratory somewhere in the world in the years since that assessment was made is one which should not be too readily cast aside. . .

Another Aryan "Space Alien"

Another Aryan “Space Alien”

Purebred Northern Europeans possess a hereditary immunity to infection by HIV, a gene (CCR5Delta 32) that conferred immunity to the Black Death, long believed to have been bubonic plague. Bubonic plague was a major focal point of Third Reich biological weapons research, stemming from SS chief Heinrich Himmler’s interest in that disease.

Disguised as a cancer research program, Nazi Germany’s plague research was presided over by Kurt Blome, the deputy surgeon general of the Third Reich. Blome went to work for the U.S. under Project Paperclip (also known as Operation Paperclip.) We wonder if the Nazi research into bubonic plague and the emergence of an immune-destroying disease to which only pure-bred Northern Europeans–“Aryans”–were immune might have been the outgrowth of Nazi-inspired U.S. biological weapons research stemming from Paperclip?

Another development in that context is noteworthy:

When the U.S. officially “gave up” biological warfare research, Fort Detrick–the military’s top bw research facility, was officially turned over to the National Cancer Institute’s Viral Cancer Research Project. Featuring veterans of the U.S. biological warfare research program, the NCI’s VCP was implemented by Litton Bionetics, a biotechnology subsidiary of Litton Industries, a major defense contractor. The National Cancer Institute’s Viral Cancer Research Project was at the epicenter of U.S. research into AIDS. We strongly suspect that this was a recapitulation of the Third Reich’s use of “cancer research.”

Just as “Aryans” possess a hereditary immunity to HIV infection, people of African descent have a hereditary susceptibility to HIV infection.

Von Braun and German General Staff officers

Von Braun and German General Staff officers

Just as Project Paperclip figures into analysis of the development of AIDS, development of aspects of the so-called New Age also track back to the importation of Nazi military scientists. Of particular interest in that regard are racist/eugenicist New Age philosophies that attribute the origins of humanity to “space aliens” with “Aryan” features–blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin.

Foremost among those New Age cults is “The Nine”–overlapping a surprisingly large aspect of the New Age. Purporting to be, variously, the progenitors of the human race (from outer space, of course) and the gods of Egypt, “The Nine” feature the blonde hair, blue eyes, etc. that are common to many of the “ET” origins of humanity.

Overlapping these “Aryan” extraterrestrial New Age philosophies are related outlooks maintaining that black people are inferior and do not originate from “outer space.”

Perhaps the best known Nazi scientist brought to the U.S. under Paperclip is Werner Von Braun, an SS officer and arguably the most important scientist involved with the U.S. space program. A war criminal of the first order, Von Braun was also one of the founders of the Institute for Noetic Sciences, a major epicenter of New Age “thought.”

urantiaHis military commander in the Third Reich’s V-weapons program–General Walter Dornberger (also a Paperclip importee)–became the head of Bell Aerospace. (Arthur Young, an devotee of “The Nine” was the father in law of Michael Paine, who worked for Dornberger at Bell. Paine, along with his wife Ruth, was one of Lee Harvey Oswald’s intelligence babysitters.)

Another key element of discussion and analysis is the Bormann group’s use of the former member companies of I.G. Farben. Bayer has bought Monsanto (the largest and best-known of the “GM” companies.) Although anti-trust rules may force the spin-off of some of the parts of Monsanto, BASF–another of the I.G. member companies under Bormann control–is poised to snap those up.

We also note that Bayer has acquired Merck’s pharmaceutical business, giving it a profound presence in the pharmaceutical and vaccine business.

With AIDS having apparently signaled the successful development of a genetically-engineered binary pathogen against which pure-bred Northern Europeans harbor a genetic immunity, we wonder if we will be seeing the introduction of such pathogens into foods and/or vaccines and/or medecines?

Will this, in turn, be dovetailed with the ascent of New Age religions that extoll white people/Aryans?

As non-whites succumb to disease introduced through the food supply and/or medecines, will this New Age/Nazi cultism increase and achieve global dominance?

Again, this program is intended to be used in conjunction with L-1 and L-2.

Jorge Paulo Lemann

Jorge Paulo Lemann: Bormann operative?

Program Highlights Include:

  • Allied interest in Franz Liesau Zaccharias, who obtained monkeys for use in Nazi medical experiments for I.G. Farben.
  • The fact that the Third Reich began experimenting on monkeys, and then began experimenting on humans.
  • The fact that the etiology of AIDS mirrors the progression of Third Reich medical experiments–progressing from apes to humans.
  • Rumination about similarities between SIV and HIV-2: according to a knowledgeable source, SIV (native to the African Green Monkey) is identical to HIV-2, except for a piece of genetic material that functions like a period in a sentence. It signals genes to stop reading one sequence of amino acids and begin reading another. The source opined that this appeared to be a gene-engineering manifestation.
  • Speculation about the “Black Death” actually being a viral-borne, infectious hemorrhagic fever, encountered by German and Japanese armies during World War II. Was this researched by Unit 731, the Japanese biological warfare research unit whose results were incorporated into the U.S. biological warfare program after World War II?
  • Rumination about the possibility that Zaccharias’s apes had contracted simian AIDS from SIV infection and the related hypothetical possibility that this led to the discovery of an immune-destroying infectious agent that affected apes. Might this have been why the Allies were so interested in Zaccharias? Surely, they didn’t need someone to teach them how to get apes from Africa. By the same token, experimenting on primates is not a war crime. So WHY were the Allies so interested in Zaccharias?
  • Discussion of the Urantia text, with its New Age devotees manifesting a racist eugenics philosophy masked by an “extraterrestrial” facade.
  • Discussion of the Hare Krishna sect, key elements of which manifest a racist philosophy that dovetails with that of the Urantia cult and The Nine.
  • Discussion of Swiss/Brazilian billionaire Jorge Paolo Lemann, a possible Bormann operative whose enterprises are buying up many food companies that cater to lower middle and working class people.
  • Becker GMBH’s genesis with the SS and capital stolen from Jews during the Holocaust.
  • Becker GMBH’s absorption into ConAgra foods, a major manufacturer of foodstuffs for lower-middle and working-class people.
  • Sullivan & Cromwell’s work as Bayer’s legal counsel for the Merck and Monsanto purchases. (Sullivan & Cromwell is the Dulles law firm.)

1. Initiating the discussion, we examine the career of Kurt Blome, the deputy surgeon general of the Third Reich, a top biological warfare researcher, conducting his work under the cover of “cancer research.”

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 75.

. . .The War Crimes Office had considerable information about Dr. Kurt Blome. He was deputy surgeon general of the Third Reich and vice president of the Reich’s Physicians’ League, Reichsarztekammer. He was  believed to have reported directly to Goring and maybe even to Himmler, or to both. Blome had been named head of Reich cancer research in 1942. Alsos and OSS presumed that this was a cover name for biological weapons work. Blome was a dedicated and proud Nazi. . . .

2. More about Blome, biological warfare and the use of “cancer research” as a cover for BW research.

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 77.

. . . . [Major E.W.B.] Gill asked how Blome, a “cancer expert,” had been put in charge of the Reich’s bioweapons program, a subject he claimed to know very little about. Blome said he had no answer for that. . . .

3. Nazi biological warfare research was propelled, in considerable measure, by SS chief Heinrich Himmler. Himmler was particularly interested in bubonic plague.

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 160.

. . . . Himmler had a layman’s fascination with biological warfare. A former chicken farmer, the Reichsfuhrer-SS had studied agriculture in school. According to Blome, it was Himmler who was the primary motivator behind the Reich’s bioweapons program. Hitler, Blome said, did not approve of biological warfare and was kept in the dark as to specific plans. Himmler’s area of greatest fascination, said Blome, was bubonic plague. . . .

4. Kurt Blome was Himmler’s point man in researching bubonic plague for biological warfare applications. 

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 161.

. . . . Blome then told Himmler that if he were to experiment with plague bacterium, he would need his own institute, an isolated facility far removed from population centers. Himmler and Blome agreed that Poland would be a good place, and they s ttled on Nessselstedt, a small town outside the former Poznan University (by then operated by the Reich). Blome’s research was to be called the Bacteriological Institute at Nesselstedt. . . .

5. Blome had achieved great progress with both bubonic and pneumonic plague.

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 230.

. . . . Dr. Kurt Blome’s expertise was in great demand, but his future was as yet undecided. In his Posen laboratory, Blome had made considerable progress with live plague pathogens, including bubonic and pneumonic plague. How far that research progressed remained vague, likely because it would put an unwanted spotlight on human experiments many believed had taken place there. . .

6. Blome allegedly knew more about bubonic plague than anyone else in the world.

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 275.

. . . . As for Dr. Blome, he was seen as a highly desirable recruit for Operation Paperclip. Blome allegedly knew more about bubonic plague research than anyone else in the world. But, given his former position in Hitler’s inner circle, coupled with the fact that Blome had worn the Golden Party Badge, bringing him to America as part of Operation Paperclip remained too difficult for the U.S. Army to justify. But as the Cold War gained momentum and intense suspicion of the Soviets increased, even someone like Kurt Blome would eventually be deemed eligible for Operation Paperclip. . . .

7. In Operation Paperclip, general Walter Dornberger was incorporated into the U.S. military research establishment. We will come back to Dornberger later in the program.

Operation Paperclip  by Annie Jacobsen; HC Little, Brown and Company; Copyright 2014 by Anne M. Jacobsen; ISBN 978-0-316-22104-7; p. 393.

. . . . Within two years of his arrival in the United States, Dornberger had transformed from public menace to American celebrity. In 1950, he left military custody at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to work for Bell Aircraft Corporation in Neagara Falls, New York, quickly becoming vice president and chief scientist. . . .

8. Next the program excerpts FTR #606. We summarize the program (and information entered into the description after the initial recording:

Introduction: For more than two decades, Mr. Emory has presented programs indicating that AIDS is a man-made disease. Supplementing that body of work, this program sets forth circumstantial evidence indicating that AIDS may have been created on a foundation of research done by the Nazis in concentration camps during the Second World War. Under a program named Project Paperclip, Nazi scientists—many of them war criminals—were recruited to do research for the U.S. national security establishment.

Among the war criminals so recruited was Erich Traub, who was one of the principals in charge of bacteriological and virological warfare for the Third Reich. After testing deadly diseases and toxins on apes procured from Africa, the Nazis progressed to testing lethal illnesses on concentration camp inmates. Note that HIV is an African simian virus, mutated in such a way as to infect and kill humans.

Among the Nazi operatives sought by the U.S. after the war was Franz Liesau Zacharias, who procured the apes in Africa for use in developing diseases to be tested on concentration camp inmates—among the diseases tested in the camps was the plague. Recent medical research indicates the existence of a genetic trait that affords immunity to both AIDS and the infections that have come to be known as “plague.”

This gene—the CCR5 delta-32 mutation—is only carried by the white race and [according to some sources] only by people of Northern European extraction. Did the Nazis note [in their experiments] that some people appeared to be immune to infection with plague? Were tissue samples taken and preserved for further study? Was this in any way connected to the eventual evolution of the CCR5-delta 32 gene as a hereditary protection against infection by HIV?

In June of 2009, it emerged that CCR5 delta-32 was used in transplant therapy administered by a German doctor to an HIV-positive leukemia patient. It appears that the patient was cured of HIV! The German doctor deliberately selected a CCR5 delta-32 positive donor for the stem cells used for the transplant.

Is it possible that Liesau Zacharias was actually targeted for recruitment by the U.S. for Project Paperclip, like Erich Traub? This program explores that possibility.

In the context of the “ethno-specific” nature of HIV, this description also contains information from late 2008 about a heightened physical susceptibility of the African race to HIV infection. Taken in conjunction with the CCR5 delta-32 mutation that affords “Aryans” immunity to infection by HIV, this is as revealing as it is frightening.

Program Highlights Include: Zacharias’ founding of a company in Spain in 1944; Zacharias’ company’s longstanding relationship with the security services of fascist dictator Francisco Franco; the profound relationship between the Underground Reich and the Spanish intelligence services; review of testimony before a House subcommittee in 1969 that directly foreshadowed the appearance of AIDS; review of the background of Dr. Wolf Szmuness—the creator of the experimental hepatitis B vaccine that appears to have been a major vector for deliberately infecting people with AIDS; Szmuness’ longstanding friendship with Pope John Paul II; the South African background of Roderick Murray—a key official with the National Institutes of Health; review of the Nazi heritage of the apartheid regime of South Africa; this description contains a consummately important review of the use of cancer research programs as cover for biological warfare both in Nazi Germany and in the United States; indications that what was known as bubonic plague may well have been a variety of hemorrhagic fever, perhaps native to a Middle Eastern of African principality.

9. Before reviewing information from FTR #686, we underscore several points relevant to the intense interest on the part of the Western Allies into Zacarias.

9a. In June of 2009, it emerged that CCR5 delta-32 was used in transplant therapy administered by a German doctor to an HIV-positive leukemia patient. It appears that the patient was cured of HIV! The German doctor deliberately selected a CCR5 delta-32 positive donor for the stem cells used for the transplant. Dr. Gupta, quoted in the following article, wonders why more publicity wasn’t afforded this event. Why indeed? Might wider publicity have called undue attention to this curious feature of the AIDS epidemic–that “Aryans” have an immunity to this disease?

Another point of interest will be to see if some of the successor firms to the old I.G. Farben cartel wind up marketing this AIDS therapy, predicated on the use of stem cells from CCR5 delta-32 donors. As discussed in Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile, the I.G. and its successor companies are inextricably linked with the Underground Reich. (The I.G.–Underground Reich axis is discussed in–among other programs–FTR #’s 305, 576.)

“Local Physician:HIV/AIDS Cure Getting Little Publicity” by Bob Morgan; baldwincountynow.com; 5/27/2009

A Foley [Alabama] physician said what appears to be the first case of HIV/AIDS cure in the world is getting little mention in the media.

Dr. Awadhesh K. Gupta, medical director at Foley Walk-In Med Care, said he first heard of the medical breakthrough in April when he attended the Annual Conference of the American College of Physicians in Internal Medicine in Philadelphia.

It’s a conference Gupta tries to attend every year.

“This is the most prestigious organization of physicians in Internal Medicine and is responsible for certifying post graduate training in Internal Medicine. It is also one of the oldest,” he said.

According to Gupta, who has been practicing medicine in the South Baldwin area since 1997, the cure was first reported in early 2008 by a group of physicians from Germany at the annual conference on “Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections” in Boston. The New England Journal of Medicine, one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, finally published the report in its Feb. 12, 2009, issue, Gupta said.

So why has the news of the first case of HIV/AIDS cure received so little attention where the public is concerned?

“I can’t be sure as to why so little publicity,” Gupta said recently.

“My guess is that most scientific researchers are somewhat stunned that a clinician — not a research scientist — has been able to come up with the cure. Most of the big research money and big name American institutions are somewhat embarrassed to acknowledge that the very first case of HIV cure is not coming from their institutions.”

The cure, instead, is coming from Charity University Hospital in Berlin, Germany, and the doctor is Gero Huetter, who works in the Department of Hematology, Oncology and Transfusion Medicine at the same hospital.

Asked about the reaction of attendees at the medical conference in Philadelphia as regarded the news of an HIV/AIDS cure, Gupta said, “Unfortunately, because of the hectic schedule, I did not try to engage too many physicians. However, the doctor presenting this information seemed extremely excited about it.”

As Gupta explains the case and cure in question, a 40-year-old American working in Berlin had been HIV-positive for 10 years. The patient’s HIV infection had been under control for four years with “conventional HAART treatment regimen” (Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy).

When the patient developed leukemia, however, a bone marrow transplant of stem cells was done using standard protocol, which Gupta said includes radiation therapy and chemotherapy prior to the transplant.

“Remember, once you stop HIV drugs, the HIV viral count rises very rapidly, usually within a few days to a week,” Gupta said.

According to Gupta, Huetter, the German physician treating the American, deliberately chose a stem cell donor who had a gene mutation known as “CCR-5 Delta- 32,” rather than using the best matched donor.

Gupta said Huetter remembered research first observed in 1996 – research Gupta said is well known in the scientific community. That research found that certain gay men in the San Francisco area remained uninfected with HIV in spite of engaging in risky sexual activities. As it was later discovered, those men had the CCR-5 Delta-32 gene mutation.

As it turned out, the patient’s stem cell transplant was a success, Gupta said, even though the patient had to have a second stem cell transplant (from the same donor) when his leukemia relapsed.

“This patient has been off all his HIV drugs for two years now,” Gupta said. “He continues to show no detectable signs of HIV in all the known places HIV is detected — no signs of HIV in his blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, intestines or brain.” Also, the patient’s T-cell count remains normal.

Thus, according to Gupta, within the limits of scientists’ ability to detect HIV, it appears this patient’s HIV has been “eradicated.”. . .

9b. Turning to a primary area of theoretical inquiry, the program notes that the Nazis began researching toxic agents on apes and then moved on to humans—inmates in concentration camps. AIDS results from a monkey virus that eventually jumped to humans as well. Does the progression in the Nazi death camps of testing on apes to testing on humans have any relationship with the progression of a simian virus to infection of humans? Might the creation of AIDS have stemmed from Nazi research? Is it an accident that the hereditary immunity from HIV infection is only present in the white race, and [according to some sources] Northern Europeans in particular? Is it an accident that people of African extraction are particularly susceptible to HIV infection?

The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben; Joseph Borkin; Copyright 1978 [HC] by The Free Press [a division of MacMillan]; ISBN 0-02-904630-0; p. 132.

“Guinea pigs and white rats, animals traditionally used for testing purposes, were deemed inadequate for measuring the effect of the nerve gases on humans. Early in the war, it was decided to substitute apes, whose biological reactions to such gases were believed to be more like those of human beings. However, apes were not readily available in Germany, and Speer’s office supplied 200,000 Swiss francs, a precious foreign currency, to buy them in Spain. [This was the program administered by Franz Liesau Zaccharias–D.E.] They were transported to Germany with great difficulty; many died before the experiments were concluded (TWC I, p. 351, Brandt Document Book 12, Defense Exhibit 11). Eventually it was decided to experiment on concentration camp Jews. It is suspected that the testing of I.G.’s poison gases on humans was known in the highest echelons of I.G. After the war, Georg von Schnitzler swore that Ambros, Schmitz, and Ter Meer were aware of these activities. According to British intelligence, one of them was reported to have ‘justified the experiments not only on the grounds that the inmates of concentration camps would have been killed anyway by the Nazis, but also on the grounds that the experiments had a humanitarian aspect in that the lives of countless German workers were saved thereby’ (Hearings before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Military Affairs, U.S. Senate, 79th Congress, 1st Session (1945), pursuant to S. Res. 107 and 146, Elimination of German Resources for War, part X, p. 1276)”

9c. Next, the program reviews (from FTR #642) information about a hereditary susceptibility to HIV infection among people of African extraction. A gene that affords people of African extraction a measure of protection against malaria infection renders them particularly vulnerable to HIV.

“Newfound Genetic Clue to HIV Rate Among Blacks” by Sabin Russell; San Francisco Chronicle; 7/17/08; p. A1.

An international team of AIDS scientists has discovered that a gene variant common in blacks protects against certain types of malaria but increases susceptibility to HIV infection by 40 percent.

Researchers, keen to find some biological clues to explain why people of African descent are bearing a disproportionate share of the world’s AIDS cases, suspect this subtle genetic trait – found in 60 percent of American blacks and 90 percent of Africans – might partly explain the difference.

Ten percent of the world’s population lives in sub-Saharan Africa, but that region accounts for 70 percent of the men, women and children living with HIV infection. In the United States, African Americans make up 12 percent of the population but account for half of newly diagnosed HIV infections. . . .

10. After tackling the speculative subject of why Zacharias was a focal point of research, we review FTR #686, noting the structural similarity between the Third Reich’s biological warfare program–disguised as a cancer research program–and the National Cancer Institute’s Special Viral Cancer Research project:

Introduction: The program begins with a summary introduction of the primary subject. After the [official] abandonment by the U.S. of offensive biological warfare research, the Nixon administration declared a “war on cancer” in 1971. As part of the War on Cancer Nixon turned Fort Detrick (the Army’s top BW research center) over to the National Cancer Institute for its Viral Cancer Project. The Viral Cancer Project was inextricably linked with biological warfare research and may well have served as a cover for ongoing BW work. (Listeners interested in this material are encouraged to check out, among other programs, FTR #’s 606, 682.)

For the purposes of the present discussion, it is worth noting that it was the National Cancer Institute’s VCP that was at the epicenter of AIDS research in the United States.

The VCP/NCI biological warfare connection utilized strong connections to university research facilities. The Naval Biosciences Laboratory (managed by the University of California), as well as Fort Detrick were profoundly involved with the NCI’s VCP. The Cell Culture Laboratory at the Naval Biosciences Facility provided the seed stock for the production of vast quantities of carcinogenic and immunosuppressive viruses that were generated by the National Cancer Institute.

The production of those viruses for the NCI was overseen by Drs. James Duff and Jack Gruber, both longtime veterans of Fort Detrick and its biological warfare research.

The aerial transmission of deadly pathogenic agents was a major focal point of the NCI’s VCP, apparently overlapping BW research projects. Two other key researchers for the NCI, Drs. Alfred Hellman and Mark Chatigny also had biological warfare research backgrounds, including work with aerial transmission of pathogenic agents.

Yet another component of the NCI/VCP/BW connection was the incorporation of pharmaceutical companies in the research programs. The Pfizer company produced viruses for the NCI’s VCP, including the immunosuppressive Mason-Pfizer monkey virus, like HIV, a retrovirus.

Among the most significant and alarming aspects of the NCI’s VCP program is the fact that, when Fort Detrick was converted to the Frederick Cancer Research Center, it was administered by Litton Bionetics, a biotechnology subisidiary of Litton Industries. Litton was a major defense contractor and a frequent vehicle for covert operations.

Prior to assuming stewardship of Fort Detrick for the NCI, Litton Bionetics had employed Dr. Robert Gallo (the “discoverer” of HIV).

Of paramount importance in this investigation is the fact that the NCI’s VCP program involved numerous experiments and operations designed at getting organisms to “jump species.” Prominent researchers familiar with these efforts expressed alarm and the conviction that such work should be outlawed, lest it lead to the creation of new, deadly organisms that would infect humans.

Obviously, this broadcast and the line of inquiry approached in Mr. Emory’s decades-long investigation of AIDS as a man-made disease highlight the possibility/probability/near certainty that HIV is just such an organism.

Program Highlights Include: Litton Bionetics’ work on the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus while under contract to the NCI and when it employed Dr. Robert Gallo; research emphasis on “zoonoses” (diseases that jump from animals to humans) by the joint military/civilian consortium; Gallo’s work with NCI VCP/Ft. Detrick veteran Dr. Jack Gruber in a mass viral inoculation program undertaken by Litton Bionetics; the use of the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus in the Litton Bionetics mass inoculation program.

11a. Following the re-broadcast of FTR #686, we delve into more points of inquiry, dealing with SIV. These points of discussion, also, relate to Franz Liesau Zacharias.

On the subject of SIV (Simian Immuno-Deficiency Virus), the broadcast notes its discovery following an outbreak in primate laboratories in the United States. Spreading to primate species with no exposure to, or antibodies to, the virus, SIV created an outbreak of disease among monkeys in the laboratory.

A knowledgeable source (who, in the words of the bard, spoke on the condition of anonymity) alleges that SIV is a virus native to the green monkey, used as a protein source by residents of Southern Africa. The source alleged that HIV-2 is identical to SIV, except for a piece of genetic material that functions somewhat like a period. That piece of material is located in the middle of a gene, something that the source said was highly unusual.

Might Zacharias have discovered SIV, when the apes he was collecting came down with simian AIDS? Recall that Zacharias was collecting the primates for I.G. Farben’s research into chemical and biological research.

Was the possible discovery of a communicable immune-collapsing infective agent in primates have been the reason that the Western Allies were so interested in Zacharias?

“Twenty Years of Monkey Research boosts AIDS Knowledge”; University of California Newsroom; 8/27/2002.

Research on an AIDS-like disease in monkeys continues to help scientists understand problems such as how HIV causes AIDS, how the virus “hides” from the immune system and how the disease might be prevented or treated, two decades after the human and monkey diseases were identified.

“These animals have been indispensable for understanding how the virus works and in working toward vaccines,” said Murray Gardner, professor emeritus of medical pathology at the UC Davis Center for Comparative Medicine.

About 300 researchers from around the world will reflect on those past achievements and discuss new data when they gather Sept. 8-11 in Monterey, Calif., for the 20th Annual Symposium on Nonhuman Primate Models for AIDS. The California National Primate Research Center (CNPRC) at the University of California, Davis, is hosting the conference.

More than 20 years ago, scientists at the UC Davis primate center were confronted with a mysterious and deadly outbreak of infections in their monkeys. Showing signs of weakened immune systems, the monkeys were succumbing to a variety of infections that normally did not cause disease.

At about the same time, a deadly new disease known as AIDS was making the headlines. Bearing a striking resemblance to the monkey syndrome, the human disease also led to opportunistic infections, wasting and death.

Scientists would later discover that the monkey disease, called simian AIDS, was caused by the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), a close relative of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes human AIDS.

The striking similarities between the human and simian disorders and the viruses that cause them enabled scientists to gain otherwise unobtainable insights into the origins and progression of human AIDS — work that continues today.

Today, scientists at the UC Davis center are using the SIV monkey model of AIDS to study ways to vaccinate against HIV transmission from adult to adult and from mother to offspring. They are also tackling the problem of eliminating latent virus — virus that is inactive and “hiding” inside cells in the body — in individuals taking medications to fight the virus. Finally, they are testing the ability of microbicides to prevent sexual transmission of SIV/HIV.

“The monkey disease is a remarkably accurate facsimile of the human disease,” said Gardner.

An authority on retroviruses and the intersection of the simian and human immunodeficiency viruses, Gardner will give the keynote address at the conference, highlighting important contributions of nonhuman primate research to knowledge of AIDS.

According to Gardner, some of the key achievements made by researchers studying immunodeficiency viruses in monkeys include: gaining an in-depth knowledge of the natural history of both the human and simian AIDS viruses, including the potential for and mechanisms of cross-species transmission; demonstrating the feasibility of an AIDS vaccine by showing that monkeys became resistant to simian AIDS when injected with weakened versions of the virus; demonstrating that SIV alone, rather than environmental or other factors, causes simian AIDS; defining the mechanisms of HIV/SIV transmission between hosts; and identifying the role of antibodies and cellular immunity, especially CD8 cells — a specific immune system component — in fighting the virus.

The symposium traces its origins to 1983, when about 30 researchers from the then seven U.S. primate research centers met at Tulane University to discuss what was then a poorly understood, spontaneously occurring immunodeficiency syndrome of macaque monkeys. The monkey disease had many strong similarities to AIDS, which was first described in 1981. HIV was first identified in 1983 and SIV in 1985. . . .

11b. Noting a recent report attempting to link AIDS in humans with SIV in chimpanzees, the program reviews information discussed with Ed Haslam about the premise for this “discovery.” Detailed analysis of Ed Haslam’s debunking of the chimpanzee theory can be accessed in FTR #269. Dr. Beatrice Hahn had previously reported the discovery of HIV present in chimpanzees. Ed notes that the chimps she had been testing had been deliberately infected with the virus in an Air Force laboratory in New Mexico, at which chimps were kept in “natural” conditions. These “natural” conditions for chimpanzee colonies entails the alpha male of the colony having sex with all of the females, thereby spreading any sexually transmitted viruses!

“Chimpanzees Infected With SIV Do Develop and Die from AIDS, Contrary to Prevailing View”; Science Daily; 7/23/2009.

Although the AIDS virus (HIV-1) entered the human population through chimpanzees, scientists have long believed that chimpanzees don’t develop AIDS. But a new study from an international team, including University of Minnesota professors Anne Pusey and Michael Wilson, shows that chimpanzees infected with SIV (simian immunodeficiency virus), the precursor to HIV-1, do contract and die from AIDS. The discovery is published in the July 23 issue of Nature.

The authors report that infected chimpanzees in their study group were 10-16 times more likely to die than those who were uninfected. The team also found that infected females were less likely to give birth and infants born to infected mothers were unlikely to survive. The virus, they learned, was transmitted sexually and through mother’s milk. Over the nine-year study period, 10-20 percent of the 94 chimpanzees were infected at any one time.

The finding opens up new opportunities for research.

“We hope this will lead to a better understanding of the virus that will benefit both humans and chimpanzees,” said Jane Goodall, whose focus has shifted in recent years from research to conservation of chimpanzees and their habitats.

The study focused on chimpanzees at Gombe National Park, Tanzania, where Goodall and her colleagues have studied chimpanzees for nearly 50 years. Researchers used data that Pusey, a long-time associate of Goodall’s, archived at the Jane Goodall Institute’s Center for Primate Studies at the University of Minnesota, to understand how SIV is transmitted among chimpanzees, and how the virus affects chimpanzee survival and reproduction.

Virologist Beatrice Hahn at the University of Alabama led the Nature study, which involved Pusey and her colleagues. Brandon Keele and Rebecca Rudicell in Hahn’s lab used techniques they developed to detect SIV in chimpanzee fecal samples. Samples were collected by research staff at Gombe and shipped to Alabama for analysis.

Examination of tissue samples from dead chimpanzees revealed a loss of CD4+ T cells (which are vital to immunity) in SIV-infected chimpanzees. Loss of these cells renders victims susceptible to many other infections – the classic indication of AIDS. Wilson organized a team of Tanzanian and American specialists to conduct the first post-mortem exam of a chimpanzee that died from AIDS.

“From a scientific perspective, it is fascinating to learn that the virus affects chimpanzees in similar ways to humans,” Wilson said. “But it is difficult knowing that there isn’t much we can do to help those whose lives may be shortened by the virus.” Wilson is a McKnight Land-Grant Professor with a joint appointment in Anthropology and Ecology, Evolution and Behavior.

“It isn’t practical to treat the chimpanzees for SIV infections, but it appears that SIV in chimpanzees is not quite as pathogenic as HIV-1 in humans,” said Pusey, who is a Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the College of Biological Sciences Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior. “So far, the main study community has maintained its size despite mortality from diseases.”

Including Pusey and Wilson, six of the co-authors are associated with the University of Minnesota. Doctoral candidate Emily Wroblewski sequenced DNA from fecal samples. Research Administrator Joann Schumacher-Stankey prepared demographic and behavioral data. Elizabeth Lonsdorf (Ph.D. 2003) is now based at Lincoln Park Zoo and leads a health-monitoring project at Gombe. Anna Moser (Ph.D. 2008) is director of Research at Gombe.

11c. The program next presents review of Ed Haslsm’s musing concerning SIV and the contamination of the polio vaccine with simian viruses. Ed theorizes that AIDS may have stemmed from the irradiation of viruses under the janus-faced cancer research/biological warfare project discussed in Dr. Mary’s Monkey: Did that irradiation produce a mutated SIV which could infect humans and which resulted in the AIDS epidemic?

Dr. Mary’s Monkey by Ed Haslam; Trine Day [SC]; Copyright 2007 by Ed Haslam; ISBN 978-0-9777953-0-6; p. 305.

 . . . SIV is the Simian Immunodeficiency Virus, one of several monkey Viruses known to have contaminated the polio vaccine. The more carcinogenic SV-40 has received most of the press. SIV, a single-strand RNA retrovirus, is considerably smaller than SV-40 (a double-strand DNA virus). The technology of the 1950’s was not able to filter SIV from the viral extracts. Further, researchers of the day did not consider retroviruses to be dangerous, so they basically ignored them. AIDS has taught us how dangerous retroviruses can be. If ‘the project’ in New Orleans was intentionally exposing SV-40 to radiation they have exposed SIV to radiation at the same time. Simply stated, HIV-1 is a mutated form of SIV. Did the mutation which changed SIV into HIV-1 occur when SV-40 was exposed to radiation? Was this the moment of conception of AIDS? Could this artificially-induced mutation explain why HIV-1 is mutating so rapidly? Why it is behaving so ‘unnaturally’? . . . .

12a. Clarifying and refining the discussion about CCR5-delta 32, this description presents an article story claims that 10%–not 20%–of Northern Europeans carry that gene. The article also asserts that what has become known as “the plague” that ravaged Europe centuries ago was actually a series of epidemics of a viral hemorrhagic fever, not the “Bubonic Plague.”

According to the authors, the theory that the “plagues” were actually Bubonic Plague gained acceptance around 1900. Prior to that, the hemorrhagic fever theory was predominant.

“Biologists Discover Why 10 Percent Of Europeans Are Safe From HIV Infection” [University of Liverpool]; Science Daily; 4/3/2005.

. . . . Scientists have known for some time that these individuals carry a genetic mutation (known as CCR5-delta 32) that prevents the virus from entering the cells of the immune system but have been unable to account for the high levels of the gene in Scandinavia and relatively low levels in areas bordering the Mediterranean. They have also been puzzled by the fact that HIV emerged only recently and could not have played a role in raising the frequency of the mutation to the high levels found in some Europeans today. Professor Christopher Duncan and Dr Susan Scott from the University’s School of Biological Sciences, whose research is published in the March edition of Journal of Medical Genetics, attribute the frequency of the CCR5-delta 32 mutation to its protection from another deadly viral disease, acting over a sustained period in bygone historic times. Some scientists have suggested this disease could have been smallpox or even bubonic plague but bubonic plague is a bacterial disease rather than a virus and is not blocked by the CCR5-delta 32 mutation. Professor Duncan commented: ‘The fact that the CCR5-delta 32 mutation is restricted to Europe suggests that the plagues of the Middle Ages played a big part in raising the frequency of the mutation. These plagues were also confined to Europe, persisted for more than 300 years and had a 100% case mortality.’ . . . .

. . . . Around 1900, historians spread the idea that the plagues of Europe were not a directly infectious disease but were outbreaks of bubonic plague, overturning an accepted belief that had stood for 550 years. Professor Duncan and Dr Scott illustrated in their book, Return of the Black Death (2004, Wiley), that this idea was incorrect and the plagues of Europe (1347-1660) were in fact a continuing series of epidemics of a lethal, viral, haemorrhagic fever that used the CCR5 as an entry port into the immune system. Using computer modeling, they demonstrated how this disease provided the selection pressure that forced up the frequency of the mutation from 1 in 20,000 at the time of the Black Death to values today of 1 in 10. . . .

12b. An interesting speculative perspective on the above article comes from a comment to FTR #606. This writer alleges that the Black Death was indeed a hemorrhagic fever, and that it was researched as a biological warfare weapon. Note that, as discussed in AFA #16, Unit 731, the Japanese biological warfare program, was subsumed into the U.S. BW program, and its files ensconced at Fort Dietrick.

Interesting theory on Delta-32. The “plague” theory of HIV/AIDS has been modified since the 1990’s. “the bubonic plague” is now most probably HFRS, which is a hemorrhagic disease that has appeared in Russia since the 1890’s and hit German troops in 1941-1942 in Finland. The Nazis were brought to Paperclip at the same time as the Japanese because they saw the disease in the 1930’s in Manchuria. Sweden saw it in 1934 and they have the highest rate of Delta-32 at 18%, with N. Germany and N. Russia. The former Soviet Union tested it as a biological weapon in the 1970’s coded as disease No. 10. Actually the only two places that have the original recombinant strains of HIV/AIDS, clade A/B are Liberia in Africa and Kaliningrad in the former Soviet Union. The precursor glycoproteins of of SIV, Ebola, and Crimean-Congo are gp 160 and 140. . . .

13. Widening the focus of inquiry to UFO’s and occultism, the broadcast features a long excerpt from FTR #874 (which, in turn, incorporates significant elements of New Age philosophy.

Introduction: The gulf between Nazism and the so-called New Age might seem to be so wide as to be unbridgeable. Sadly, that is not the case. At the core of Nazi belief was occultism, drawing on Pan-Germanic mythology deriving from the Thule Society, ariosophy, elements of Hindu religious doctrine and more commonly recognizable belief systems such as astrology.

As a result, New Age sects and religion have frequently dovetailed with elements of Nazi and fascist philosophy. (For more about the Nazi/fascist/New Age connection, see–among other programs–FTR #’s 170172221 as well as L-2. The intimate relationship between elements of the intelligence community, mind control, cults and fascism are discussed in–among other programs–AFA #7Miscellaneous Archive Show M7, and FTR #291. The recent underground film “Thrive” is very much worth examining in this regard.)

In FTR #873, we examined how the Atlantis myth has fed directly into Nazi occultism and “polygenesis,” a key feature of scientific racism.

Next, we turn to examination of a major constellation in the New Age firmament–the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Based in Petaluma, California, the institute was co-founded by SS officer, Third Reich and NASA rocket scientist and Project Paperclip import Werner von Braun.Next, we turn to yet another Third Reich alumnus who worked for NASA.

As the environment and the economy continue to suffer and deteriorate–and the human condition along with them–it may prove enlightening and very useful to weigh the implications of those who advocate belief in Space Aliens. One of them is Josef F. Blumrich.

Blumrich apparently worked for the Messerschmitt firm, much of that time working on the ME-110 fighter. Ultimately, he became an allied POW and went to work for NASA, the ultimate home of many of the Third Reich’s rocket personnel.

Could this be part of an attempt at preparing us for our “Nazi/Aryan/Brothers from Space/Angels from God”?

The second half of the program consists of a re-broadcst of FTR #170, dealing with “The Nine” and other aspects of polygenesis racial theory and “esoteric Nazism.”

Program Highlights Include: 

  • Werner von Braun’s recruiting of slave laborers to be worked to death at the V-2 rocket factory.
  • The notion that almost all of earth’s people evolved from “The Nine”–a group of space aliens who were also “the gods of Egypt.”
  • The Nine’s contention that black people did NOT evolve from The Nine–endorsing the notion of “polygenesis” and implying that they are inferior.
  • Areas of overlap between the New Age constellation grouped around The Nine and the intelligence community’s mind control programs.
  • The role of Russians inculcated with the philosophy of The Nine and the subversion of the U.S.S.R.
  • Aerospace professional Arthur Young’s connections with The Nine.

14. Another New Age philosophical element reminiscent of The views of The Nine is the racist, quasi-Nazi/eugenic philosophy of Swami Prabupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna cult.

The views of “Swami Prabhupada” are set forth, illustrating their convergence with Nazi philosophy. In FTR #172, we examined how aspects of Hindu philosophy and culture were seen as dovetailing with Hitlerian fascism.

Those views are on display at length and in detail in the article below.

“Swami Prabhupada: Founder Of Hare Krishna Movement, And A Virulent Racist, Anti-Semite”
by Palash Ghosh; International Business Times; 09/27/13.

Abhay Charanaravinda Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada — better known as A.C. Bhaktivedanta or simply by the honorific “Prabhupada” — was a Bengali Indian Hindu spiritual leader who founded the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, itself better known in the West as the “Hare Krishna” movement. . . .

. . . . But the man who spearheaded the Hare Krishna empire, Prabhupada, espoused some very controversial views that would likely upset, and even outrage, those who are otherwise sympathetic to spiritual endeavors and theology.

For one thing, Prabhupada spewed vitriolic racial hatred toward black/African people — repeatedly and explicitly. Examples of his racial bigotry are numerous and frequently recorded in lectures and private conversations by his many devotees and disciples over the decades.

Even if some of his comments were taken out of context (as his defenders and apologists sometimes assert), the sheer volume and magnitude of his immense bigotry cannot be ignored nor sugar-coated.

Part of Prabhupada’s hatred of blacks stemmed from his deep-seated Hindu beliefs that dark-skinned peoples represent the very bottom of the hierarchy of the human race — a direct reflection of India’s ancient color-based caste system.

For example, in an April 1968 letter to a senior disciple named Satsvarupa Dasa Goswami (born an Italian Roman Catholic in Staten Island named Stephen Guarino), Prabhupada wrote: “Certainly we are not going to say these things about the Negro people publicly, we have no distinction between black or white, or demon or demigod, but at the same time, so long as one is demon or demigod, we have to behave in the proper way.” These words, which suggested that blacks should be kept at a distance, were uttered shortly after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

During a speech before a class in Los Angeles later that year, Prabhupada told a bizarre tale of how the apartment he was staying at in New York City had been burglarized and his typewriter and tape recorder stolen.

”When I came back [to the apartment] I saw the door [was] broken,” Prabuphada said. “That [building] superintendent, he was a Negro. He [had] done [it], I know that. This is [a] very common case here [in America].”

In a conversation with devotees on the island of Mauritius from 1975, Prabhupada chastised the gross materialism of the West, while simultaneously slurring black people.

“It is all [a] nonsense civilization,” he declared. “A first-class Rolls Royce car, and who is sitting there? A third-class Negro. This is going on. You will find these things in Europe and America. This is going on. A first-class car and a third-class Negro.”

Prabhupada frequently used the term “Negro” even though that word had fallen out of favor in most Anglophone nations.

The theme of black people as cursed by God and hopelessly beyond redemption appeared repeatedly in Prabhupada’s comments.

During an initiation session in Bombay (now called Mumbai), he told some devotees who were preparing to go to Africa: “You have got [a] good opportunity. You are going to Africa to deliver these persons … These groups of men are considered very fallen … the black men … They are habituated to steal; therefore they have been given a separate place, [the] African jungles.”

For a man who came from a country colonized by the British, Prabhupada made some rather shocking statements about imperialism, in particular as it pertained to the United States. In a discussion with a disciple named Syamasundara Dasa, Prabhupada seemed to equate the Native Americans (pejoratively called “Red Indians”) of North America with the Sudras (the lowest-caste, darkest-skinned Indians of the Hindu system in India).

“Sudras [black people] have no brain,” he said. ‘In America also, the whole [of] America once belonged to the Red Indians. Why they could not improve? The land was there. Why [did] these foreigners, the Europeans, came and improved [it]? So sudras cannot do this. They cannot make any [improvements].’

Prabhupada apparently also deeply embraced the myth of the “Aryan” super-race and linked the ancient peoples of India to Europe and the U.S. During a talk in Australia one year prior to his death, Prabhupada declared that “the Aryans spread [to] Europe also, and the Americans, they also spread from Europe. So the intelligent class of human being, they belong to the Aryans, [the] Aryan family. Just like [Adolph] Hitler claimed that he belonged to the Aryan family.”

The Swami also equated the Dravidians, that is, the dark-skinned original inhabitants of India who now predominate in the southern part of the country, with black Africans. He also bemoaned that the Dravidians (black people) mixed with the Aryans (white people) throughout Indian history, including in his native Bengal.

“In Bengal the … black mixed up with [the] white,” he complained. “In Bengal and Madras [now called Chennai, a city in South India], so many Dravidian have been mixed up with the Aryan. Therefore in Bengal and Madras you’ll find many [people who are] black.”

The Dravidians, Prabhupada declared, are “non-Aryans. Just like these Africans, they are not Aryans.”

Prabhupada also appeared to warn that the race-mixing that occurred in India was also occurring in Europe and America, and that it would create serious problems in the future.

He also held some deeply pessimistic views about the racial conflict in the United States. Speaking in Tehran, Iran, in 1976, Prabhupada declared, “I don’t think the Negro question [in the U.S.] is solved … The whites, they do not like the Negroes still. Wherever there are Negroes, in that [neighborhood] the whites do not go in …. Although they [black people] have been given equal [rights], but at heart the whites, they do not like it. Is there any improvement? I don’t think [so].”

Prabhupada also appeared to endorse segregation — the separation of the races, by referring to behavior in the animal kingdom.

“[Black] crows will not like to live with the ducks and white swans,” he reportedly said during a train trip in India during the final year of his life. “And white swans will not like to live with the crows. That is [a] natural division.”

In a conversation with an American disciple named Ramesvara, Prabhupada suggested that without government control through welfare, black people would become “out of control” and create disorder in society.

“Especially in your country [the U.S.] it will be dangerous because these blacks, if they don’t get employment, they will create havoc, these blacks,” he said. “And they are not civilized. They want money, and if they don’t get money, then they will create havoc.”

In a February 1977 conversation in Mayapur, along the Ganges, Prabhupada pontificated on what must be done with the “blacks” (the Sudras) of India — again, equating them with African-Americans of in the U.S. Most appallingly, he suggested that black people should remain in bondage.

“[The] Sudra is to be controlled only,” he said. “They are never [to be] given… freedom. Just like in America. The blacks were slaves. They were under control. And since you have given them equal rights they are disturbing, most disturbing, always creating a fearful situation, [blacks are] uncultured and drunkards. What training they have got? They have got equal [rights]? [It] is best, to keep them under control as slaves but give them sufficient food, sufficient [clothes], not more than that. Then they will be satisfied.”

Prabhupada also had some choice words about the Jews.

During another conversation with Ramesvara, Prabhupada alleged that Hitler killed the Jews in Germany because banks in the United States and Western Europe (allegedly controlled by Jews) were helping to finance Vladimir Lenin and the Communist revolution in Russia and elsewhere.

“They [Jewish bankers] were financing against [the interests of] Germany,” Prabhupada said. “Otherwise, he [Hitler] had no enmity [against] the Jews… The Jews have got money. They want to invest and get some profit. Their only interest is how to get money, [not] nationalism, [not] religion, nothing of the sort … Therefore [William] Shakespeare wrote [of] ‘Shylock, the Jew.’”

Also, speaking in New York in March 1966, the Swami declared: “Hitler was a great student of Bhagavad-gita [classic Hindu scripture]”

A devotee named Gopagopisvara Dasa wrote that Prabhupada clearly embraced racism and eugenics.

“Prabhupada certainly believed that there was a master human race, the Aryans, and that they were white or tan,” he wrote. “Most other races, such as Africans or Native Americans, were inferior.” . . . . 

15. We then note that Arthur Young’s son-in-law, Michael Paine, worked for Arthur Dornberger at Bell Aerospace. Paine, and his wife Ruth, were two of the Oswalds’ apparent intelligence handlers.

Sinister Forces–Book Three: The Manson Secret by Peter Levenda; TrineDay [SC]; Copyright 2006 by Peter Levenda; ISBN 0-9752906-4-9; pp. 265-271.

. . . . Missing the most crucial connection of all, however–that of Arthur Young, Ruth Paine and Lee Harvey Oswald–they ended their book with the breathless expectation that something of awesome global importance would occur at or near the millennium a the site of the Pyramids at Giza. . . .

. . . . Odd, then, that the Oswalds’ Texas benefactors–the Paines–would have strong ties to the aerospace industry, and that Michael Paine would work for General Walter Dornberger at Bell Aerospace. . . .

16. Further developing the synthesis of Nazi/eugenics racial theory with New Age philosophy, that, in turn, combined with belief in space aliens, we present FTR #909.

Introduction: NB: One should not necessarily conclude that all or most of the folks at Celestial Seasonings are eugenicists, although that may be the case. The discussion here is undertaken to illustrate the extent to which fascist and Nazi ideology has infiltrated the so-called New Age. In our opinion, the New Age, for the most part, is a synthesis of Nazi occultism and the intelligence community’s mind control programs.

Continuing discussion about the profound fascist influences in the so-called New Age, this program highlights strong links between people involved in launching Celestial Seasonings herbal teas and the Urantia Book. The latter is a voluminous New Age tract that maintains that human beings descended from fair-skinned, blue-eyed space aliens.

” . . . . But there might be another rea­son they named it ‘celes­tial.’ Mo Siegel and John Hay, two of the founders, were avid believ­ers in a new-age bible called The Uran­tia Book, which fol­low­ers call ‘an epochal rev­e­la­tion authored solely by celes­tial beings.’ The book touches upon every­thing from mind con­trol to a eugen­ics plot to elim­i­nate the ‘infe­rior races’ of our great nation. . . . The Uran­tia Book, a 4.3-pound, 2,097-page tome, pub­lished first in 1955, is a mod­i­fied Seventh-Day Adven­tist text sup­pos­edly com­mu­ni­cated to an anony­mous man in a trance by aliens. . . . “

The genesis of the book appears to lie with people associated with influential American elite players who subscribe to the eugenics philosophy. ” . . . . In real­ity, it was likely authored in the early 1900s by a psy­chi­a­trist named William Sadler who used it as a ves­sel for his racist ideas. . . .”

Asserting that humans evolved from the blue-eyed, fair-skinned, extraterrestrial Adam and Eve, the book manifests an outlook that is not only racist, but could clearly lead to genocidal policies.

” . . . . On every planet through­out every uni­verse, fair-skinned, blue-eyed aliens named Adam and Eve appear to ‘upstep’ the natives. When their prog­eny mate with the accept­able inhab­i­tants of the planet, the ‘infe­rior stocks will be elim­i­nated and there will be one puri­fied race, one lan­guage, and one reli­gion,’ as Gard­ner explains it in Uran­tia: The Great Cult Mystery.

But before that can hap­pen, Paper 51 of The Uran­tia Book says, ‘the infe­rior and unfit are largely elim­i­nated… it seems that you ought to be able to agree upon the bio­logic dis­fel­low­ship­ing of your more markedly unfit, defec­tive, degen­er­ate, and anti­so­cial stocks.’

This process hap­pens on every planet when Adam and Eve appear. But on Uran­tia (i.e., earth), it didn’t go accord­ing to plan. Adam and Eve messed up. So, ‘hav­ing failed to achieve race har­mo­niza­tion by the Adamic tech­nique,’ Part II: The Local Uni­verse sec­tion of book tells us, ‘you must now work out your plan­e­tary prob­lem of race improve­ment by other and largely human meth­ods of adap­ta­tion and control.’

‘Bio­logic ren­o­va­tion of the racial stocks — the selec­tive elim­i­na­tion of infe­rior human strains,’ Paper 70 of The Uran­tia Book says, will ‘tend to erad­i­cate many mor­tal inequalities.’ . . . . “

William Sadler, the patron of the Urantia text, was a well-known, avowed eugenicist, who moved in elite circles: ” . . . . While Hitler didn’t have any­thing to do with writ­ing The Uran­tia Book, William Sadler did. One of the most well-known psy­chi­a­trists of his era, Sadler got his start work­ing for Dr. John H. Kel­logg at the famous Bat­tle Creek San­i­tar­ium, which treated celebri­ties like the Rock­e­fellers, Mont­gomery Ward and even Thomas Edi­son. Kel­logg was a noto­ri­ous eugeni­cist and founded the Race Bet­ter­ment Foun­da­tion, whose goals were ‘to call atten­tion to the dan­gers which threaten the race.’

Influ­enced by Kellogg’s ideas, Sadler pub­lished three eugeni­cist books: Long Heads and Round Heads; or, What’s the Mat­ter With Ger­many (1918), Racial Deca­dence: An Exam­i­na­tion of the Causes of Racial Degen­er­a­tion in the United States (1922) and The Truth About Hered­ity (1927). The Uran­tia Book echoes the ideas pre­sented in these books, and in some cases, it repro­duces the text word for word.

In Racial Deca­dence, Sadler expresses, among other notions, that the ‘unfit’ should be ster­il­ized, that ‘moral­ity is hered­ity’ and that ‘some races are more moral than oth­ers.’ And in The Truth About Hered­ity, Sadler writes that mar­riage between races ‘is to be deplored when one of the races would be infe­rior as com­pared with the other, which hap­pens to be the bio­logic fact as con­cerns the White and Negro races in this country.’ . . . .”

Compare the advocacy contained within Urantia Book and the views of Hitler: “ . . . .’Bio­logic ren­o­va­tion of the racial stocks — the selec­tive elim­i­na­tion of infe­rior human strains,’ Paper 70 of the Uran­tia Book says, will ‘tend to erad­i­cate many mor­tal inequalities.’

Com­pare that to Hitler’s words in Mein Kampf: ‘The demand that defec­tive peo­ple be pre­vented from prop­a­gat­ing equally defec­tive off­spring rep­re­sents the most human act of mankind.’ . . . .”

There are indications that the Urantia crowd have taken the eugenicist teachings of the text to heart. Note that Kermit Anderson, director of the genetic screening program at Kaiser Permanente is associated with the group” . . . . The [Urantia] Fel­low­ship is putting its money where its mouth is, too. In a 2010 email sent to “read­ers with advanced infor­ma­tion and for­ward look­ing per­spec­tives that are not suited for being posted on the web­site,” a fol­lower named Mar­tin Green­hut writes that the trustees have con­vened a panel on eugen­ics. He names all of the panel mem­bers, the most strik­ing of which is Ker­mit Ander­son, who at that time was the genetic screen­ing pro­gram direc­tor at Kaiser Per­ma­nente in Cal­i­for­nia and the author of much genet­ics research.

In FTR #908, we reviewed the evolutionary progression of the overlapping mental hygiene movements and eugenics movements. Graduating from theory to practice and involving sterilization, legal prohibition against “intermarriage,” and euthanasia, that evolution led to the Nazi extermination programs derived from the T-4 program.

With technology forecast as on track to replace large numbers of working people in years soon to come, the issue of what happens to “excess” population is one to be addressed.

The infiltration of outright Nazi ideas into the intellectual realm of the New Age philosophy embraced by otherwise gentle and altogether unsuspecting individuals is to be viewed with alarm.

There is abundant evidence that so-called “UFO’s” are real and come from right here on earth, NOT from outer space. People who have been manipulated into believing in the superior wisdom of “space aliens” who advise us to embrace “kinder, gentler genocide” may well be paving the way for a cataclysm.

Program Highlights Include:

  • Review of “The Nine”–a New Age manifestation that also posits that life on earth descended from blue-eyed, fair-skinned space aliens and which incorporates a racist, eugenics-oriented philosophy.
  • Prognostication about the possible impact of political, economic and environmental catastrophe on the inclination of human beings to resign themselves to being dictated to by “our brothers from space.”
  • Review of the Nazi/Operation Paperclip genesis of the U.S. space program.
  • Review of SS officer Werner Von Braun’s role in launching the Institute for Noetic Sciences, a major epicenter of New Age thinking.

16a. Next, the show recaps information that flying saucers are real, and do not come from “outer space.”

Former Air Force Sergeant Robert Vinson–an eyewitness to an Oswald double flying out of Dallas on 11/22/1963–was posted to Site 51 (“Area 51”) outside of Las Vegas.

While at the base, he learned of saucer-shaped aircraft being flown by the CIA at the base.

The development of so-called “flying saucers” may well have evolved from Project Paperclip and the incorporation of Third Reich rocket and aviation specialists, as well as advanced technology, into the U.S. national security establishment.

 . . . . On his new assignment, Vinson would soon learn that the CIA’s projects out of Site 51 included experimental aircraft shaped like saucers. The same was true at the CIA’s other base at Roswell, New Mexico, where the C-54 carrying the second Oswald had landed. Both Site 51 and Roswell were home to “flying saucers” that people saw periodically in the area. They in fact came not from outer space but from the CIA, which encouraged the flying saucer reports as a convenient cover story for U.S. experimental aircraft. . . .

16b. The so-called “Foo Fighters” (a corruption of the French wordfor fire–“Feu”) date to World War II. As discussed in L-1, Allied commanders concluded that the Foo Fighters were new German anti-aircraft devices.

“Mysterious ‘Foo Fighters,’ Balls Of Fire, Trail U.S. Night Flyers Thought at First to Be Explosive, but None as Yet Has Damaged a Plane” [AP]; St. Louis Post Dispatch; 1/2/1945.

A UNITED STATES NIGHT FIGHTER BASE, France, Jan. 2 (AP)–American fighter pilots engaged in night missions over Germany report the Nazis have come up with a new “secret weapon” – mysterious balls of fire which race along beside their planes for miles.

Yank pilots have dubbed them “foo fighters,” and at first thought they might explode, but so far there is no indication that any planes have been damaged by them.

Some pilots have expressed belief that the “foo fighter” was designed strictly as a psychological weapon.  Intelligence reports seem to indicate that it is radio-controlled and can keep pace with planes flying 300 miles an hour.

Lt. Donald Meiers of Chicago, said there are three types of “foo fighters” – red balls of fire that fly along at wing tip; a vertical row of three balls of fire which fly in front of the planes, and a group of about 15 lights which appear off in the distance – like a Christmas tree up in the air – and flicker on and off.

The pilots of this Beaufighter squadron – in operation since September, 1943 – find these fiery balls the weirdest thing they have as yet encountered.

“A ‘foo fighter’ picked me up recently at 700 feet and chased me 20 miles down the Rhine Valley,” Meiers said.  “I turned to starboard and two balls of fire turned with me.  I turned to the port side and they turned with me.  We were going 260 miles an hour and the balls were keeping right up with us.”

“On another occasion when a ‘Foo-Fighter’ picked us up, I dived at 360 miles an hour.  It kept right off our wing tips for awhile and then zoomed into the sky.”

“When I first saw the things, I had the horrible thought that a German on the ground was ready to press a button and explode them.  But they didn’t explode or attack us. They just seem to follow us like will-o-the-wisps.”

Lt. Wallace Gould of Silver Creek, N. Y., said the lights followed his wing tips for a while and then, in a few seconds, zoomed 20,000 feet into the air and out of sight. . . .

17. The program notes that the Underground Reich and the remarkable and deadly Bormann flight capital organization is moving to purchase a dominant position in the food production business. Bayer (formerly part of I.G. Farben) has purchased Monsanto and Merck Pharmaceutical.

This information is developed in an excerpting of FTR #912:

Introduction: This program is speculative in nature, evaluating the possibility that companies descended from the I.G. Farben German chemical cartel may absorb Monsanto, the firm noted for its development of genetically modified organisms.

Specifically, Bayer and BASF figure in the reported maneuvering for Monsanto.

Against the background of the remarkable Bormann capital network’s effective control of the firms that descended from I.G. Farben, we ruminate about the possibility of genetically engineered binary pathogens being included in the food supply available to much of the world’s population.

Available information highlights possible Underground Reich maneuvering to gain control of firms marketing foodstuffs to middle, lower middle and working class people. This speculation, in turn, is set against the background of information strongly suggesting that AIDS was deliberately developed.

For more than three decades, Mr. Emory has presented programs indicating that AIDS is a man-made disease. Supplementing that body of work, this program sets forth circumstantial evidence indicating that AIDS may have been created on a foundation of research done by the Nazis in concentration camps duringthe Second World War. Under a program named Project Paperclip, Nazi scientists—many of them war criminals—were recruited to do research for the U.S. national security establishment.

Jorge Paulo Lemann

Recent medical research indicates the existence of a genetic trait that affords immunity to both AIDS and the infections that have come to be known as “plague.” (Originally thought to be an outbreak of bubonic plague–a bacteriological disease–recent research has shifted focus to a viral disease more akin to Ebola.)

This gene—the CCR5 delta-32 mutation—is only carried by the white race and [according to some sources] only by people of Northern European extraction. Did the Nazis note [in their experiments] that some people appeared to be immune to infection with plague? Were tissue samples taken and preserved for further study? Was this in any way connected to the eventual evolution of the CCR5-delta 32 gene as a hereditary protection against infection by HIV?

In June of 2009, it emerged that CCR5 delta-32 was used in transplant therapy administered by a German doctor to an HIV-positive leukemia patient. It appears that the patient was cured of HIV! The German doctor deliberately selected a CCR5 delta-32 positive donor for the stem cells used for the transplant.

Obviously, we are wondering about the possibility of the Underground Reich using foodstuffs to vector humanity with genetically engineered pathogens that will realize Hitler’s dream of an “Aryan” world.

Program Highlights Include:

  • Becker GMBH’s genesis with the SS and capital stolen from Jews during the Holocaust.
  • Becker GMBH’s absorption into ConAgra foods.
  • The growing participation by Jorge Paulo Lemann in foodstuffs and beverages consumed by middle, lower-middle and working class people.
  • Speculation about Lemann’s participation in the Bormann capital network.
  • BASF’s partnering with Monsanto and the possibility that the firm may acquire any subsidiary firms that Bayer may have to spin off to acquire Monsanto.

17a. First, we highlight some aspects of Bayer’s prospective purchase of Monsanto.

“Bayer Takeover of Mon­santo Would Cre­ate a Global Giant” [AP]; The Los Angeles Times; 5/19/2016.

Bayer’s poten­tial acqui­si­tion of Mon­santo Co. would cre­ate a giant seed and farm chem­i­cal com­pany with a strong foot­print in the U.S., Europe and Asia, com­bin­ing two busi­nesses with com­ple­men­tary geo­graph­i­cal focus.

But Bayer might have to shed part of its busi­ness because of antitrust con­cerns. [Consider that in light of the Bloomberg story about BASF–D.E.] And the price tag on any deal would be huge: Monsanto’s mar­ket value is around $42 billion.

Germany-based Bayer said Thurs­day in a short state­ment that its exec­u­tives had met recently with their Mon­santo coun­ter­parts “to pri­vately dis­cuss a nego­ti­ated acqui­si­tion” of the spe­cial­ist in genet­i­cally mod­i­fied crop seeds.

The news of a poten­tially costly deal sent Bayer shares tum­bling 8.2%. Mon­santo shares climbed 3.5%.

Both com­pa­nies are famil­iar brands on farms around the globe. Bayer, whose farm busi­ness pro­duces seeds as well as com­pounds to kill weeds, bugs and fun­gus, said the pro­posed acqui­si­tion would help it “cre­ate a lead­ing inte­grated agri­cul­ture business.”

Mon­santo, based in St. Louis, said it was review­ing Bayer’s pro­posal. Nei­ther com­pany gave other details.

The pos­si­ble deal had been rumored for a week, but these were the first com­ments from either company.

“A com­bi­na­tion of both com­pa­nies would cre­ate $67 bil­lion of annual sales and the world’s largest seed and crop-chemical com­pany,” ana­lyst Ulrich Huwald at War­burg Research wrote in a research note to investors. “How­ever, the ques­tion is if Mon­santo would be inter­ested in a deal.”

Huwald said that “the busi­nesses are geo­graph­i­cally com­ple­men­tary, with Mon­santo hav­ing a strong pres­ence in North Amer­ica and Bayer in Europe and Asia.”

A com­bi­na­tion of the two would have 28% of the global mar­ket for pes­ti­cides and a strong pres­ence in the U.S. corn and soy­bean seed business.

Huwald said that the two com­pa­nies do over­lap in their veg­etable and cot­ton seed busi­ness, which could require divest­ments due to antitrust issues. Bayer might also have to sell parts of its weed killer business.

Antitrust reg­u­la­tors scru­ti­nize merg­ers and takeovers and have the author­ity to block them if they hin­der free-market com­pe­ti­tion. If com­pa­nies get too much con­trol over a mar­ket, they can charge higher prices and have fewer incen­tives to innovate.

News of the talks fol­lows a wave of con­sol­i­da­tion in the chem­i­cal indus­try: DuPont and Dow Chem­i­cal agreed to com­bine last year, and Chem­China agreed to buy Syn­genta of Switzer­land in March after Monsanto’s own bid for its Basel-based rival failed. . . . .

17b. We note that BASF, like Bayer, one of the successor companies to I.G. Farben, has partnered with Monsanto in many of their GMO projects. “ . . . . More­over, a Bayer-Monsanto tie-up may put BASF’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Amer­i­cans at risk. BASF and Mon­santo work together on research and devel­op­ment in plant biotech­nol­ogy, giv­ing a strong rea­son, per­haps, to spoil Bayer’s plans. . . . “

“BASF Best Leav­ing Mon­santo Seeds for the Birds” by Olaf Storbeck; Reuters; 5/19/2016.

There is one thing the share­hold­ers of the chem­i­cal com­pany BASF should fear more than con­sol­i­da­tion between its Ger­man rival Bayer and the Amer­i­can seed maker Mon­santo: their own board wad­ing in with a counterbid.

Bayer’s bid for Mon­santo puts BASF’s chief exec­u­tive, Kurt Bock, on the spot. With agri­cul­tural rev­enue of 5.8 bil­lion euros ($6.5 bil­lion), BASF is one of the world’s big play­ers in an indus­try where every­one seems to be enthu­si­as­ti­cally cou­pling. Think of Dow Chemical’s merger with DuPont, and Syngenta’s planned takeover by Chem­China. Only BASF would be left on the shelf.

More­over, a Bayer-Monsanto tie-up may put BASF’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Amer­i­cans at risk. BASF and Mon­santo work together on research and devel­op­ment in plant biotech­nol­ogy, giv­ing a strong rea­son, per­haps, to spoil Bayer’s plans. . . .

17c. IF Bayer does purchase Monsanto and is forced to divest itself of some subsidiary firms due to anti-trust considerations, BASF may well pick up those firms that are “spun off,” thus giving the Underground Reich effective control of the GMO food business.

“. . . . In the lead up to Bayer AG’s unso­licited takeover pro­posal for Mon­santo Co on Thurs­day, Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer Kurt Bock has talked up thrift, balk­ing at the price tags placed on assets. Rather than bet­ting the farm on a big deal and chal­leng­ing arch agro­chem­i­cals rival Bayer for Mon­santo, Bock appears con­tent to stay out of the fray, ready to selec­tively buy up any busi­nesses that may come to the mar­ket in the dust of mega deals. . . .”

17d. More about BASF, Bayer and Monsanto.

“BASF Is Sleep­ing Giant on Deals as Bayer Moves on Monsanto” by Sheenagh Matthews and Andrew Marc Noel; Bloomberg; 5/19/2016.

* Ger­man chem­i­cals maker fears over­pay­ing, los­ing inte­gra­tion
* CEO Kurt Bock may buy agro­chem­i­cals assets dis­carded on deals

With an aver­sion to over­pay­ing and con­vic­tion that a con­glom­er­ate approach is best, Germany’s BASF SE has so far sat out the biggest-ever con­sol­i­da­tion wave in the global crop chem­i­cals and seeds industry.

In the lead up to Bayer AG’s unso­licited takeover pro­posal for Mon­santo Co on Thurs­day, Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer Kurt Bock has talked up thrift, balk­ing at the price tags placed on assets. Rather than bet­ting the farm on a big deal and chal­leng­ing arch agro­chem­i­cals rival Bayer for Mon­santo, Bock appears con­tent to stay out of the fray, ready to selec­tively buy up any busi­nesses that may come to the mar­ket in the dust of mega deals. . . . .

17e. Bayer (a former division of IG Farben) has, indeed, purchased Monsanto. This furthers the firm’s goal of becoming dominant in the farm supplies industry, combining its crop science business with Monsanto’s strength in seeds in a form of vertical integration. This is consistent with Nazi strategy to develop dominant cartels on the world stage with the Underground Reich companies.

The deal was a cash takeover, the largest in history. Not many companies can do this.

In FTR #912, we noted Bormann capital network-linked firms and their big moves into food production. (The last pre-recorded side in this long archive show concludes with the audio track of FTR #912.) In addition we reflected on this against the background that AIDS was deliberately manufactured and constitutes the application of genetic engineering to biological warfare. (The CCr5 Delta 32 gene offers immunity to infection by HIV and is present only in pure-bred Northern Europeans, aka “Aryans.”)

Will we see genetically-engineered binary pathogens introduced into the food supply?

Note that there the deal doesn’t seem to make all that much sense from a normal, commercial standpoint: ” . .Baader Helevea Equity Research analyst Jacob Thrane, with a ‘sell’ rating on Bayer, said the German company was paying 16.1 times Monsanto’s forecast core earnings for 2017, more than the 15.5 times ChemChina agreed to pay for Swiss crop chemicals firm Syngenta last year. He also said there was uncertainty over what the combined company would look like as regulators might demand asset sales. . . .”

It will be interesting to see if regulators force Bayer to sell off some assets and, as we speculated about in FTR #912, Bayer’s former IG Farben associate BASF acquires those assets.

This would keep the firms under the control of the remarkable and deadly Bormann capital network.

“Bayer Clinches Monsanto with Improved $66 Billion Bid” by Ludwig Burger and Greg Roumeliotis; Reuters; 9/15/2016.

German drug and crop chemical maker Bayer clinched a $66 billion takeover of U.S. seeds company Monsanto on Wednesday, ending months of wrangling with a third sweetened offer that marks the largest all-cash deal on record.

The $128-a-share deal, up from Bayer’s previous offer of $127.50 a share, has emerged as the signature deal in a consolidation race that has roiled the agribusiness sector in recent years, due to shifting weather patterns, intense competition in grain exports and a souring global farm economy.

“Bayer’s competitors are merging, so not doing this deal would mean having a competitive disadvantage,” said fund manager Markus Manns of Union Investment, one of Bayer’s top 12 investors.

Grain prices are hovering near their lowest levels in years amid a global supply glut, and farm incomes have plunged.

But the proposed merger will likely face an intense and lengthy regulatory process in the United States, Canada, Brazil, the European Union and elsewhere. Hugh Grant, Monsanto’s chief executive, said Wednesday the companies will need to file in about 30 jurisdictions for the merger.

Competition authorities are likely to scrutinize the tie-up closely, and some of Bayer’s own shareholders have been highly critical of a takeover that they say risks overpaying and neglecting the company’s pharmaceutical business.

If the deal closes, it will create a company commanding more than a quarter of the combined world market for seeds and pesticides in the fast-consolidating farm supplies industry.

What the newly-formed company would be named is unclear.

Grant said on Wednesday’s media conference call that the future of the Monsanto brand has not yet been discussed, but the world’s largest seed company is “flexible” about the name going forward.

The transaction includes a $2-billion break-up fee that Bayer will pay to Monsanto should it fail to get regulatory clearance. Bayer expects the deal to close by the end of 2017.

The details confirm what a source close to the matter told Reuters earlier.

Baader Helevea Equity Research analyst Jacob Thrane, with a “sell” rating on Bayer, said the German company was paying 16.1 times Monsanto’s forecast core earnings for 2017, more than the 15.5 times ChemChina agreed to pay for Swiss crop chemicals firm Syngenta last year. He also said there was uncertainty over what the combined company would look like as regulators might demand asset sales.

Bernstein Research analysts said on Tuesday they saw only a 50 percent chance of the deal winning regulatory clearance, although they cited a survey among investors that put the likelihood at 70 percent on average.

“We believe political push-back to this deal, ranging from farmer dissatisfaction with all their suppliers consolidating in the face of low farm net incomes to dissatisfaction with Monsanto leaving the United States, could provide significant delays and complications,” they wrote in a research note.

Bayer said it was offering a 44-percent premium to Monsanto’s share price on May 9, the day before it made its first written proposal.

It plans to raise $19 billion to help fund the deal by issuing convertible bonds and new shares to its existing shareholders, and said banks had also committed to providing $57 billion of bridge financing.

Bayer shares rose 0.3 percent to 93.55 euros. Monsanto’s were up 0.6 percent at $106.76.

ONE-STOP SHOP

Bayer’s move to combine its crop chemicals business, the world’s second-largest after Syngenta AG, with Monsanto’s industry-leading seeds business, is the latest in a series of major agrochemicals tie-ups.

The German company is aiming to create a one-stop shop for seeds, crop chemicals and computer-aided services to farmers.

That was also the idea behind Monsanto’s swoop on Syngenta last year, which the Swiss company fended off, only to agree later to a takeover by China’s state-owned ChemChina.

U.S. chemicals giants Dow Chemical and DuPont plan to merge and later spin off their respective seeds and crop chemicals operations into a major agribusiness.

And on Monday, Canadian fertilizer producers Potash Corp of Saskatchewan Inc and Agrium Inc agreed to combine to navigate a severe industry slump, but the new company’s potential pricing power may attract tough regulatory scrutiny.

The Bayer-Monsanto deal will be the largest ever involving a German buyer, beating Daimler’s tie-up with Chrysler in 1998, which valued the U.S. carmaker at more than $40 billion. It will also be the largest all-cash transaction on record, ahead of brewer InBev’s $60.4 billion offer for Anheuser-Busch in 2008.

Bayer said it expected the deal to boost its core earnings per share in the first full year following completion, and by a double-digit percentage in the third year.

Bayer and Monsanto were in talks to sound out ways to combine their businesses as early as March, which culminated in Bayer’s initial $122 per-share takeover proposal in May.

Antitrust experts have said regulators will likely demand the sale of some soybeans, cotton and canola seed assets.

Bayer said BofA Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, HSBC and JP Morgan had committed to providing the bridge financing.

BofA Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse are acting as lead financial advisers to Bayer, with Rothschild as an additional adviser. Bayer’s legal advisers are Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Allen & Overy LLP.

Morgan Stanley and Ducera Partners are acting as financial advisers to Monsanto, with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz its legal adviser.

17f. In its acquisitions of both Monsanto and Merck Pharmaceutical Co.’s over-the-counter drug business, Bayer has received its legal counseling from Sullivan & Cromwell, the old Dulles law firm.

In the Monsanto deal: ” . . . . Bayer’s legal advisers are Sullivan & Cromwell LLP and Allen & Overy LLP. . . . “

In the Merck deal: ” . . . . Sullivan & Cromwell LLP represented Bayer AG in its agreement to buy Merck & Co.’s consumer unit for $14.2 billion. . . .”

John Foster Dulles of Sullivan & Cromwell had much to do with the cobbling together of the I.G. Farben cartel, of which Bayer was a key element. As discussed in FTR #912 (among other programs), Bayer has retained its links with the Underground Reich and the Bormann capital network.

Again, in FTR #16, we highlighted speculation that the AIDS virus may have been spread in the U.S. (in part, at least) by an experimental hepatitis-B vaccine manufactured by Merck. We wonder if information from that possible information may now be in possession of pertinent information relevant to that vaccine?

Might this impact on future genetically-modified products manufactured by Bayer/Monsanto, as speculated about in FTR #912? Will we see the CCr5Delta 32 gene (the “Aryan” gene) introduced into a future Bayer product?

Will GM products with binary pathogens designed to harm people of color and spare “Aryan” genotypes be introduced into pharmaceutical products, as well as (possibly) food stuffs?

Stay tuned!

    After the war, every bloodless means possible was to be used by the Nazis to get rid of people they did not like by increasing the death rate over the birth rate. This was to be done so slowly and painlessly over many years that no one would notice. One means, was to make health care as bad as possible so more people would die for want of good medical care. Think about the Republicans health care program where millions would lose their health care insurance and the cost to many, such as the old and these with preexisting conditions, would just be too high to have heath insurance. Most of these people wold just have to die. I wonder if that is what Trump and the Republicans really want?

    Budweiser renames beer ‘America’
    this summer
    excerpt May 10, 2016 By Mary Bowerman , USA Today

    “Nothing says ‘America’ like an ice-cold can of mass-produced beer.

    Anheuser-Busch announced Tuesday that the company is replacing the Budweiser logo with “America” on its 12-oz. cans and bottles this summer.

    The cans of patriotic nectar will be available May 23 through the November election and aim “to inspire drinkers to celebrate America and Budweiser’s shared values of freedom and authenticity.”

    The company is no stranger to American-themed summer cans, which have been transformed into American flags and featured the Statue of Liberty in the past. This year, the cans and bottles will try to stir American pride with lines from the Pledge of Allegiance and lyrics from The Star Spangled Banner. ”

    “Apparently, the Belgium-based megabrewer, which owns more than 200 brands globally, including Corona and Stella Artois, knows the way straight to our checkbooks. Throw some America on it!”

    …that while some consumers may be intrigued by the new can design, others will likely be alienated by the company’s attempt to literally “package America.”

    Drink it up, America.”
