Quandt Family Values: BMW heir Harald Quandt (in uniform) with his in-laws

[5]Introduction: As the title indicates, this program updates previous topics of discussion and presents information not previously introduced. Updating FTR #791 [6], the program notes the death of Cornelius Gurlitt, the son of prominent Nazi art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt. The younger Gurlitt was found to be in possession of a vast trove of artworks, valued at at $1.35 billion by some accounts.

A Wall Street Journal article maintains that the elder Gurlitt was to be the director of Hitler’s Fuehrermuseum. Never built, the art for that intended institution comprised much of the art alleged by authors Simon Dunstan and Gerrard Williams to be at the center of the deal between Allen Dulles and Martin Bormann.

Cornelius Gurlitt left his art trove–valued at around one $1.35 billion–to a Bern, Switzerland art museum. Switzerland was and is, of course, a major repository for much of the Bormann flight capital. One can but wonder if this museum has connections with the Bormann group.

Notice, also, that Gurlitt had a second residence in Salzburg, Austria. As discussed in FTR #791 [6], the German authorities had no record of Cornelius Gurlitt. In a country where every citizen must register with the police of his or her residential area, this is unthinkable and indicative of some high-level chicanery.

Recent news has offered up a grimly instructive juxtaposition. As Glenn Greenwald and his associates in the Snowden “op” garnered journalistic prizes, Frazier Glenn Miller, a veteran neo-Nazi and associate of The Order [allegedly] killed three at a Jewish community center in Kansas.

As we have seen in FTR #754 [7] and several posts [8], Greenwald was a fellow-traveler of some of murderous Nazi and white supremacist groups. In addition to defending Matthew Hale against solicitation  of murder [9] charges, Greenwald ran interference [10] for the “leaderless resistance strategy.” [11]

Leaderless resistance is an operational doctrine through which individual Nazis and white supremacists perform acts of violence against their perceived enemies, individually, or in very small groups. Acting in accordance with doctrine espoused by luminaries and leaderls in their movement, they avoid infiltration by law enforcement by virtue of their “lone wolf” operational strategy. What Miller [allegedly] did is pre­cisely the sort of thing advo­cated by the “Lead­er­less Resis­tance” strategy.

The advo­cates of this sort of thing, such as Cit­i­zen Greenwald’s client The National Alliance (pub­lisher of  The Turner Diaries,” which pro­vided the oper­a­tional tem­plate for Miller’s bene­fac­tors The Order) have been shielded (to an extent) from civil suits hold­ing them to account for their mur­der­ous advo­cacy.

We can give thanks to Greenwald.

National Alliance’s books are specifically intended as instructional vehicles.  [14]Hunter [14] is dedicated to Joseph Paul Franklin, who was close to Miller. The shootings of which Miller is accused were on Franklin’s birthday. Although not legally liable for such killings, Greenwald does bear political, moral, philosophical and “karmic” responsibility. The sycophants and fools who celebrate him enjoy similar status.

Miller is also an admirer of Ron Paul [15], the Presidential candidate of choice for Greenwald’s benefactor Eddie “the Friendly Spook” Snowden. The “Paulistinian Libertarian Organization” [16] is at the foundation of the Greenwald/Snowden milieu.

Much of the balance of the program highlights the growing control of American media outlets by doctrinaire fascist organizations with a heritage evolving from World War II.

With our media already demonstrating a compulsion to fundamentally misrepresent events in an overtly ideologized fashion (as we are seeing with regard to the Ukraine situation), the inroads of Muslim Brotherhood, SS-linked Bertelsmann and elements linked with the Unification Church is something to be feared.

“German Art Collector in Nazi Loot Uproar Dies at 81 — Update” by Mary M. Lane; The Wall Street Journal; 5/6/2014. [26]

Cornelius Gurlitt, the octogenarian son of one of Adolf Hitler’s major art dealers, died in his Munich home on Tuesday morning, leaving the fate of his roughly 1,400 artworks unclear.

Legal questions now swarm surrounding how–and even if–looted works in the collection can now be restituted to Holocaust victims and their heirs.

Mr. Gurlitt, 81 years old, stepped from complete obscurity into world-wide prominence last fall after German media reports surfaced that Bavarian tax authorities had confiscated in early 2012 what is regarded as the largest-ever trove of Nazi-looted art in private hands.

The fact that the find remained unreported for nearly two years and the government’s refusal to put pressure on Mr. Gurlitt to return any looted artwork to heirs of their original owners drew international criticism of Germany from the U.S., France and Israel.

Mr. Gurlitt died in the presence of his doctor and caretakers, a few weeks after requesting that he return home from a Bavarian hospital where he had undergone intensive heart surgery, his spokesman said on Tuesday afternoon. The collector, who was never married and had no children, leaves no direct heir or known next of kin.

The trove included many unremarkable works on paper but also several valuable paintings. One of those, an Henri Matisse portrait that Matisse dealers say could fetch up to $20 million at auction, is being chased by the heirs of the late French art dealer Paul Rosenberg, including Anne Sinclair, a prominent journalist and ex-wife of former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

That painting and several other artworks were looted from Holocaust victims during World War II. It is unclear how the works ended up in the collection of Mr. Gurlitt’s father, Hildebrand, a successful Nazi-era dealer whom Hitler had tapped to lead his unrealized Führermuseum in Linz, Austria after the war.

German authorities came under fire from major Jewish leaders, including Ronald Lauder and Israeli and American officials because the trove, though confiscated in early 2012, the was kept secret for two years–even from the Bavarian justice minister–in violation of international norms on art restitution.

At the time, Bavarian tax authorities justified the decision to keep the works’ existence a secret because of their continuing investigation into Mr. Gurlitt’s finances. The Augusburg prosecutor’s office in charge of the investigation didn’t answer calls seeking comment.

Although that investigation will lapse now that Mr. Gurlitt is dead, fresh hurdles abound, mainly surrounding a simple question: who has inherited Mr. Gurlitt’s estate?

Christopher Marinello, a lawyer for the Rosenberg heirs, says the family will continue pursuing the case, but that “we’ll have to wait for the estate process to run its course.”

It is unclear, though, whom Mr. Marinello should even contact or who will be handling the estate process.

Given Mr. Gurlitt’s perpetually frail state of health, a German court appointed Munich-based lawyer Christoph Edel as his legal guardian late last year. But Mr. Edel’s position was “voided as soon as Mr. Gurlitt died,” his spokesman, Stephan Holzinger, told The Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Holzinger says he doesn’t even know if Mr. Gurlitt has a will and that his own contract will only continue for “the next few days.”

“The only guy who could give orders in [restituting art] was Mr. Edel, but now his job has ended,” said Mr. Holzinger. “The job right now is to find out what’s in the will–if there is a will.”

The lack of certainty about a finished will may in part be due to the tensions that have plagued Mr. Gurlitt’s own legal team since it came together earlier this year.

In January, The Journal reported that Mr. Gurlitt was willing to negotiate the return of works of art within the collection, but Mr. Gurlitt’s lawyer, Hannes Hartung, was fired soon afterward

Several families, including the Rosenberg heirs, complained that Mr. Hartung was unwilling to rule out a demand for monetary compensation for returning Nazi-looted art.

Last month tax authorities announced they would return Mr. Gurlitt’s artwork. Through his legal guardian, Mr. Gurlitt responded to international complaints by giving the government-appointed task force that had already been examining the provenance authority to spend a year researching it and helping arrange restitution for works that it determined were looted.

But even that task force is uncertain now with whom it should coordinate since Mr. Gurlitt is dead.

“We want to fulfill our duty to research this work as seriously as before,” said task force spokesman Matthias Henkel. “We are still working on determining with whom to speak now.”

2. Cornelius Gurlitt left his art trove–valued at around one $1.35 billion–to a Bern, Switzerland art museum. Switzerland was and is, of course, a major repository for much of the Bormann flight capital. One can but wonder if this museum has connections with the Bormann group.

Notice, also, that Gurlitt had a second residence in Salzburg, Austria. As discussed in FTR #791, the German authorities had no record of Cornelius Gurlitt. In a country where every citizen must register with the police of his or her residential area, this is unthinkable and indicative of some high-level chicanery.

“‘Nazi Art’ Hoarder Gurlitt Makes Swiss Museum Sole Heir”; BBC News; 5/7/2014. [27]

German Nazi-era art hoarder Cornelius Gurlitt, who died on Tuesday, has made the Bern Art Museum in Switzerland his “sole heir”.

The reclusive son of Adolf Hitler’s art dealer is estimated to have amassed a collection worth up to a billion euros.

The museum said the news struck “like a bolt from the blue”, given that it had had no relationship with Mr Gurlitt.

The collection was the subject of a long legal dispute over works that may have been taken illegally by the Nazis.

The Bern Art Museum said that it was delighted at the news that it had been made Mr Gurlitt’s “unrestricted and unfettered sole heir”, but added that the bequest also posed some questions.

“The Board of Trustees and directors of Kunstmuseum Bern are surprised and delighted, but at the same time do not wish to conceal the fact that this magnificent bequest brings with it a considerable burden of responsibility and a wealth of questions of the most difficult and sensitive kind, and questions in particular of a legal and ethical nature”, it said in a statement.

Mr Gurlitt’s father, Hildebrand Gurlitt, was ordered to deal in works that had been seized from Jews, or which the Nazis considered “degenerate” and had removed from German museums.

The priceless collection was confiscated in 2012 by Bavarian authorities from the apartment of his son.

After initially refusing to give up the paintings, Mr Gurlitt changed his position, agreeing to co-operate with the German authorities on establishing the paintings’ provenance, and returning them if they were shown to be stolen.

‘Wild speculation’
Mr Gurlitt, who had no close relatives, wrote the will within the last few weeks shortly before undergoing heart surgery, according to his spokesman, Stephan Holzinger.

“It now falls to the probate court to determine if the will is valid and whether a contract of inheritance exists,” he told the BBC earlier on Wednesday.

“I can understand that there is now wild speculation, but I don’t want to comment on that at this stage.”

The German government said earlier that the collector’s death would not affect the investigation into ownerships claims on the paintings.

Mr Gurlitt’s collection only came to light after a routine check found he was carrying wads of cash on a train from Switzerland, triggering a tax inquiry.

Investigators found more than 1,400 works in his flat in Munich in February 2012 – though they only revealed the discovery in late 2013 – and a further 60 in his house near Salzburg, Austria, earlier this year.

Among them were works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Emil Nolde and Max Liebermann.

The collection is estimated to be worth up to a billion euros (£850m; $1.35bn).

Under German law, Cornelius Gurlitt was not compelled to return any paintings because the incidents happened more than 30 years ago.

We can give thanks to Greenwald.

National Alliance’s books are specifically intended as instructional vehicles. Hunter is dedicated to Joseph Paul Franklin, who was close to Miller. The shootings of which Miller is accused were on Franklin’s birthday.

Although not legally liable for such killings, Greenwald does bear political, moral, philosophical and “karmic” responsibility. The sycophants and fools who celebrate him enjoy similar status.

Miller is also an admirer of Ron Paul [15], the Presidential candidate of choice for Greenwald’s benefactor Eddie “the Friendly Spook” Snowden. The “Paulistinian Libertarian Organization” [16] is at the foundation of the Greenwald/Snowden milieu.

Idle thought number 219–“old German families” in Latin America helped finance The Order, which gave money to Miller (among others).  Matthews’ group certainly robbed armored cars and gained financial support in so doing.

In that regard, we wonder to what extent The Order may actually have been a vehicle for laundering funds from those “old German families in Latin America?”

3b. 1988: Neo-Nazi Group Founds Pub­lish­ing House, Pub­lishes Book to Inspire White Assas­sins;  [14]His­tory Commons [14]

. . . .William Pierce, the founder of the neo-Nazi National Alliance (see 1970–1974) and the author of the inflam­ma­tory and highly influ­en­tial white suprema­cist novel The Turner Diaries (see 1978), over­sees the cre­ation of a pub­lish­ing firm for the Alliance, National Van­guard Books. It will pub­lish a num­ber of works, most promi­nently a reprint of The Turner Diaries and Pierce’s sec­ond novel, Hunter, which tells the story of a white assas­sin who kills minori­ties, par­tic­u­larly inter­ra­cial cou­ples. He ded­i­cates Hunter to Joseph Paul Franklin, con­victed of the sniper mur­ders of two African-American men (see 1980). Pierce will later tell his biog­ra­pher that he wrote Hunter as a delib­er­ate moti­va­tional tool for assas­sins, say­ing, “From the begin­ning with Hunter, I had this idea of how fic­tion can work as a teach­ing tool in mind.” In 2002, the Cen­ter for New Com­mu­nity will write, “Like The Turner Diaries, the book has inspired sev­eral real-life acts of racist ter­ror” (see Jan­u­ary 4, 2002 and After). In 1991, National Van­guard will expand into releas­ing audio­tapes, which by Decem­ber 1992 will spawn a radio show, Amer­i­can Dis­si­dent Voices. In 1993, it will begin pub­lish­ing comic books tar­geted at chil­dren and teenagers. . . .

. . . .The per­former also said ” . . . Some very old Ger­man fam­i­lies [in South Amer­ica] were giv­ing Bob [Matthews, leader of The Order] some money.” . . .

. . . For exam­ple, as long ago as 1978, Man­fred Roeder [29], who headed the rem­nants of the Ger­man Nazi Partytrav­eled to Brazil, where he met with Josef Men­gele and other Nazi lead­ers. Imme­di­ately after­ward, Roeder trav­eled to the United States, where–according to the ADL–he met with Dr. William Pierce, among others. . . .”

. . . . In recent years, Mr. Miller has also been a devoted pen pal to incarcerated white supremacists, among them Joseph Paul Franklin, a convicted murderer who was executed in Missouri in November. Ms. Beirich, of the law center, said that Mr. Miller was very close to Mr. Franklin, whose birthday was Sunday, the day of the shooting. . . .

3e. “Frazier Glenn Miller”; Southern Poverty Law Center [31]

Date of Birth:
1940
Loca­tion:
Spring­field, Mo.
Ide­ol­ogy:
Ku Klux Klan [32]

Fra­zier Glenn Miller, also known as Fra­zier Glenn Cross, is the for­mer “grand dragon” of the Car­olina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which he founded and ran in the 1980s before being sued by the South­ern Poverty Law Cen­ter for oper­at­ing an ille­gal para­mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tion and using intim­i­da­tion tac­tics against African Amer­i­cans. After sub­se­quently form­ing another Klan group, the White Patriot Party, he was found in crim­i­nal con­tempt and sen­tenced to six months in prison for vio­lat­ing the court set­tle­ment. He went under­ground while his con­vic­tion was under appeal but was caught by the FBI with a weapons cache in Mis­souri. He served three years in fed­eral prison after being indicted on weapons charges and for plot­ting rob­beries and the assas­si­na­tion of SPLC founder Mor­ris Dees. As part of a plea bar­gain, tes­ti­fied against other Klan lead­ers in a 1988 sedi­tion trial. On April 13, 2014, Miller was arrested in the shoot­ing deaths of three peo­ple at a Jew­ish com­mu­nity cen­ter and nearby retire­ment com­mu­nity in Over­land Park, Kansas.

Crim­i­nal His­tory:
In 1986, Miller was con­victed on a fed­eral con­tempt of court charge after vio­lat­ing the terms of a con­sent order that set­tled a law­suit filed against him and his Klan group by the South­ern Poverty Law Cen­ter. He was sen­tenced to a year in prison, with six months sus­pended. How­ever, he dis­ap­peared while out on bond await­ing an appeal and was later caught in Mis­souri along with four other Klans­men and a cache of weapons.

In 1987, he pleaded guilty to a weapons charge and to mail­ing a threat through the mail. He had been indicted along with four other white suprema­cists for con­spir­ing to acquire stolen mil­i­tary weapons, and for plan­ning rob­beries and the assas­si­na­tion of SPLC founder Mor­ris Dees. In an agree­ment with fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors, he received a five-year prison sen­tence in exchange for his tes­ti­mony against 14 white suprema­cist lead­ers in a sedi­tion trial. He served three years of that sentence.

Back­ground:
Fra­zier Glenn Miller is the founder and for­mer leader of both the Car­olina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party, both of which were oper­ated as para­mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tions in the 1980s.

Miller quit high school as a senior to join the U.S. Army. In 1979, he retired from the Army as a mas­ter sergeant after 20 years of active duty, includ­ing two tours in Viet­nam and 13 years as a mem­ber of the elite Green Berets.

Miller claims he read a racist news­pa­per for the first time in the early 1970s when his father gave him a copy of The Thun­der­bolt, pub­lished by Ed Fields of the racist, anti-Semitic National States’ Rights Party. Accord­ing to Miller, within two min­utes of brows­ing through the tabloid, he knew he “had found a home within the Amer­i­can White Move­ment. I was ecsta­tic.” He joined the National States’ Rights Party in 1973, but soon left because, he later tes­ti­fied, it was “made up mostly of elderly peo­ple who were not that active.”

He then joined the National Social­ist Party of Amer­ica, a Nazi group whose mem­bers attacked and killed marchers asso­ci­ated with the Com­mu­nist Work­ers Party in Greens­boro, N.C., in 1979. The fol­low­ing year, due to his involve­ment with the Nazi group, the Greens­boro shootout, and death threats against him and his fam­ily, his wife left him and moved with their chil­dren to Chicago.

Miller was forced to retire from the Army due to his Klan-related activ­i­ties. He enrolled in John­ston Tech­ni­cal Col­lege in Smith­field, N.C., and also bought a 25-acre farm in Ang­ier, N.C., near Raleigh. It was there, in late 1980, that he formed the Car­olina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and began to amass ille­gal weapons and con­duct mil­i­tary train­ing with the help of active-duty sol­diers. Miller wanted to model the Car­olina Knights on Hitler’s Nazi Party. “I would try to emu­late Hitler’s meth­ods of attract­ing mem­bers and sup­port­ers,” he wrote in his auto­bi­og­ra­phy. “In the years to come, for exam­ple, I placed great empha­sis on stag­ing marches and ral­lies. It had been suc­cess­ful with Hitler.”

Miller rep­re­sented a new, mil­i­tant breed of Klan lead­ers in the 1980s, pre­fer­ring fatigues over the tra­di­tional Klan robe and train­ing his troops in mil­i­tary tac­tics. He was not averse to pub­lic­ity and began hold­ing ral­lies and marches on a near-weekly basis up and down the Atlantic Seaboard. He announced his goal was to cre­ate a Car­olina Free State, which would be an “all-white nation within the bounds of North and South Car­olina.” He said his ene­mies were “nig­gers” and Jews. He boasted of hav­ing sup­port­ers at Fort Bragg, the nearby Army base that was home to a large con­tin­gent of U.S. spe­cial forces.

In 1983, after a black prison guard, Bobby Per­son, filed a dis­crim­i­na­tion suit against the North Car­olina prison sys­tem, mem­bers of the Car­olina Knights began to intim­i­date the plain­tiff. They also harassed, threat­ened and intim­i­dated other African Amer­i­cans in the area. The SPLC, led by Mor­ris Dees, sued Miller and his group in June 1984 – demand­ing they stop their cam­paign of intim­i­da­tion and cease all para­mil­i­tary activity.

The SPLC lawyers did not know it at the time, but Miller had ties to The Order, a white nation­al­ist ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion whose mem­bers assas­si­nated Den­ver talk show host Alan Berg just 13 days after the SPLC filed suit. The leader of the group, Robert Math­ews, had given Miller $200,000 in cash that was part of the $3.8 mil­lion stolen dur­ing an armored car rob­bery. It was later revealed that Dees was at the top of The Order’s hit list. Miller tes­ti­fied in the 1988 trial of other white suprema­cists that Math­ews told him “they were think­ing about killing” Dees.

In Jan­u­ary 1985, the SPLC reached a con­sent agree­ment with Miller that pre­vented the Knights from oper­at­ing as a para­mil­i­tary group and from harass­ing, intim­i­dat­ing, threat­en­ing or harm­ing any black per­son or white per­son who asso­ci­ated with black per­sons. A month later, how­ever, Miller announced the for­ma­tion of a new Klan group, the White Patriot Party. His goal was the same: the “uni­fi­ca­tion of white peo­ple.” He vowed to oper­ate peace­fully – unless the fed­eral gov­ern­ment infringed on his rights, in which case he would resort to “under­ground rev­o­lu­tion­ary tac­tics … with the armed resources at our disposal.”

It took less than a year for Miller and the White Patriot Party to vio­late the con­sent order. The SPLC obtained pho­to­graphic evi­dence of active-duty Marines help­ing train his mem­bers. In a July 1986 trial, in which Dees acted as a spe­cial pros­e­cu­tor to assist fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors, Miller was found guilty of crim­i­nal con­tempt. One wit­ness tes­ti­fied he had pro­cured weapons and explo­sives, includ­ing 13 armor-penetrating anti-tank rock­ets, from mil­i­tary per­son­nel on behalf of Miller, after the set­tle­ment. He also said he received a duf­fel bag full of cash as pay­ment to con­duct train­ing intended to help “cre­ate a para­mil­i­tary guer­rilla unit for later use in estab­lish­ing a White South­land.” Miller was sen­tenced to a year in prison, with six months of that term sus­pended. He was also ordered to dis­as­so­ci­ate him­self from the White Patriot Party and avoid con­tact with white supremacists.

In Octo­ber of that year, while out on bond await­ing an appeal of his con­vic­tion, Miller wrote to North Carolina’s gov­er­nor, ask­ing for an appoint­ment to the Governor’s Task Force on Racial, Reli­gious and Eth­nic Vio­lence and Intim­i­da­tion. He said he would be will­ing to pub­licly dis­cour­age racial vio­lence and act as a liai­son to “the many White groups in North Carolina.”

But, in 1987, while still out on bond, Miller dis­ap­peared and went under­ground. He mailed a “Dec­la­ra­tion of War [33]” to sup­port­ers, exhort­ing “Aryan war­riors of The Order” to kill “our ene­mies,” and estab­lished a point sys­tem for each kill. The tar­gets were: “Nig­gers (1), White race trai­tors (10), Jews (10), Judges (50) Mor­ris Selig­man Dees (888).” He signed the state­ment “Glenn Miller, loyal mem­ber of ‘The Order.’”

The FBI caught up with Miller and four other Klans­men in Spring­field, Mo., where he was tear-gassed out of a mobile home. Author­i­ties found hand grenades, auto­matic weapons, thou­sands of rounds of ammu­ni­tion, the explo­sive C-4, and $14,000 in cash. He and the oth­ers were indicted for con­spir­acy to acquire stolen mil­i­tary weapons, explo­sives and equip­ment, and for plan­ning rob­beries and the assas­si­na­tion of Dees. Miller pleaded guilty to a weapons charge and to send­ing a threat through the mail. He served three years in fed­eral prison, mostly in Otisville, N.Y. As part of his plea deal, he agreed to tes­tify against 14 lead­ing white suprema­cists in a sedi­tion trial.

Miller has ties to Kevin W. Harpham, a neo-Nazi who was con­victed of attempt­ing to bomb a Mar­tin Luther King Jr. Day parade in Spokane, Wash., in 2011. Although Harpham pleaded guilty, Miller was con­vinced that Harpham’s lawyers deceit­fully con­vinced him that he would be found guilty regard­less of his inno­cence. Through­out his trial pro­ceed­ings, Miller was a reg­u­lar pen pal with Harpham, who was sen­tenced to 32 years in prison.

3f. “LISTEN: Alleged Kansas Gunman Frazier Glenn Miller Discusses the Tea Party, Obama, and Ron Paul” by Tim Murphy and Dana Liebelson; Mother Jones; 4/14/2014. [15]

In a 2010 radio interview, Frazier Glenn Miller, the man suspected of killing three people Sunday at a Jewish community center and a Jewish retirement center in Kansas, said he was interested in the tea party, voiced support for then-Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and spoke approvingly of Ron Paul, the Texas Republican congressman and presidential candidate. In late April 2010, Miller, a former Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragon, was a guest on The David Pakman Show, a nationally syndicated left-of-center radio and television program. At the time, Miller was running for US Senate as an independent in his home state of Missouri with the slogan “It’s the Jews, Stupid,” and Pakman pressed Miller on his extreme views. . . .

. . . . Not surprisingly, Miller denigrated most American politicians, but cited one positively: “If I had my way [all US senators] would be in jail right now for treason, if not hung from a sturdy oak tree…Ron Paul is the only independent politician, representative in Washington.” . . . .

4a. In numerous posts and programs, we have discussed another of the National Alliance books–Serpent’s Walk. In that text, the Third Reich and the SS go underground, grow their wealth, buy into the opinion-forming media, and–after the U.S. is devastated by a series of terrorist attacks using WMD’s–they take over the country.

In the context of Serpent’s Walk, we have discussed the advance of Bertelsmann in the corporate media world.

The former supplier of books for the SS is wielding larger influence. Bertelsmann will dominate a new Random House/Penguin merged unit, which will control 25% of the world’s publishing business.

Formerly headed by SS man Heinrich Mohn [34], Bertelsmann shows every indication of maintaining its Nazi character and obscuring them at the same time. Its official house historian [35] published books blaming World War II on Franklin Delano Roosevelt, U.S. imperialism and Jewish control of the U.S. news media.

With Bertelsmann continuing its efforts in the music business [36] and other Underground Reich media entities like Al Jazeera [37] gaining in the American media market, we expect the scenario presented in  [38]Serpent’s Walk [38] will come to pass.

The book publishing industry is starting to get smaller in order to get stronger.

The announcement on Monday that Random House and Penguin would merge narrows the business to a handful of big publishers, and could set off a long-expected round of consolidation as the industry adapts to the digital marketplace.

John Makinson, the chief executive of Penguin who will serve as chairman of the new company, said that with consolidation inevitable, “we decided it was better to get in early rather than be a follower.”

In announcing the agreement, the European owners of Random House and Penguin — Bertelsmann and Pearson, respectively — said Bertelsmann would control 53 percent of the combined entity and Pearson 47 percent. In a statement, Bertelsmann said the deal would most likely conclude in the second half of 2013, after approval from regulators.

The merger will create the largest consumer book publisher in the world, with a global market share of more than 25 percent and a book list that includes contemporary best-sellers like Random House’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” and Penguin’s backlist of classics from authors like George Orwell. . . .

4c. “Bertelsmann’s Revi­sion­ist” by Her­sch Fis­chler and John Fried­man; The Nation; 11/8/99.  [19]

. . . . Rewrit­ing his­tory, he [Bertelsmann house historian Dirk Bavendamm] stated that Roo­sevelt, not Hitler had caused World War II. He also wrote that Amer­i­can Jews con­trolled most of the media,’ and he claimed they gave a false pic­ture of Hitler. Did the book impress [Heinrich’s son Rein­hard] Mohn, then the major­ity share­holder of Ber­tels­mann? The firm hired Baven­damm as its house his­to­rian, and in 1984 he com­pleted a his­tor­i­cal study, 150 Years of Ber­tels­mann: The Founders and Their Time—with a fore­word by Mohn.

A year later, Baven­damm edited the firm’s offi­cial his­tory, which set forth the untrue story that the firm had resisted the Nazis and had been closed down by them. Mohn also asked Baven­damm to write the autho­rized his­tory of the Mohn fam­ily, pub­lished in 1986 under the title Ber­tels­mann, Mohn, Scip­pel: Three Families—One Com­pany. In a sec­ond book, Roosevelt’s War (pub­lished in 1993, reis­sued in 1998), Baven­damm accuses the U.S. Pres­i­dent of enact­ing a plan to start World War II. In the same book he sug­gests that Hitler’s threats in early 1939 against Euro­pean Jewry were a reac­tion to Roosevelt’s strat­egy against Ger­many.

After the rev­e­la­tions about Bertelsmann’s Nazi past appeared, the com­pany announced that it had asked ‘the his­to­rian and pub­li­cist Dr. Dirk Baven­damm to look at the new infor­ma­tion and begin to rein­ves­ti­gate the role the pub­lish­ing house played in those days’ and defended his work. . .

4c. Bertelsmann is also forging ahead in the music industry:

“Bertelsmann Acquires Full Control of BMG Music Company” by Ben Sisario; The New York Times; 3/1/2013. [18]

Bertelsmann, the 178-year-old German media giant that has been trying to remake itself for the digital age, announced on Friday that it would take control of BMG Rights Management, the music company it restarted in 2008, in a deal that values BMG at $1.4 billion.

Bertelsmann said it would buy the 51 percent of BMG that it did not own from its partner in the venture, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. The companies did not disclose financial terms, but a person with direct knowledge of the deal, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the purchase price was $700 million to $800 million, including the assumption of debt.

The deal signals a full return to the music business for Bertelsmann, whose other media properties include Random House and the magazine publisher Gruner & Jahr. After building the first incarnation of BMG, which stood for Bertelsmann Music Group, into a global powerhouse in the 1980s and ’90s, Bertelsmann sold most of its music holdings through a series of deals with Sony and Universal in the mid-2000s.

“We are bringing the music home to our group,” Thomas Rabe, Bertelsmann’s chairman and chief executive, said in a statement.

BMG was revived in 2008, and the next year, K.K.R. made the first of its $270 million of investments in the company. BMG has made a string of acquisitions in music publishing, the side of the business that deals with copyrights for songwriting, and built a catalog of more than one million songs by artists like Johnny Cash, Carly Simon and Frank Ocean and Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. . . . .

5. David Jang, whose business enterprises control both Newsweek and The International Business Times, has a background in the Unification Church, formerly headed by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon.

An intelligent analysis of the apparent methodology of The Community, the Christian organization Jang now operates, suggests the possibility that that organization MIGHT actually be a clandestine Moonie front–it uses some tactics similar to Unification Church practices. The evidence was NOT sufficiently strong to convince a Japanese court of that allegation in a lawsuit filed against The Community.

In FTR #291 [39], we examined the Unification Church as an extension of the Japanese Patriotic Societies, that brought fascism to Japan through a program of political assassination and propaganda.

“Who’s Behind Newsweek?” by Ben Dooley; Mother Jones; May/June 2014. [20]

Two days after Barack Obama won reelection, I met a young Chinese woman, whom I will call Anne, in the basement café at the San Francisco Public Library. Anne worked part time and gave a large portion of her earnings to a group she called “the Community,” a Christian sect led by a charismatic Korean pastor named David Jang. After joining the group in her late teens, Anne had spent more than seven years working in its ministries—organizations and businesses run by Jang’s disciples. With short hair and large glasses, Anne was now in her late 20s but looked younger. She said she rarely had enough money for small luxuries like coffee. We chatted with a mutual friend while we waited for her husband, Caleb, who also worked for a ministry: the International Business Times [2], the flagship publication of an eponymous online news company that would, nine months later, become the new owner of Newsweek [3] magazine.

Caleb was running late because he was translating Obama’s victory speech into Chinese for IBT, which publishes 11 editions in seven languages.. . .

. . . . [David] Jang also has a history with Moon’s Unification Church. In 2013, a Japanese court resolved an almost six-year-long libel case that Christian Today, a Jang-founded website, filed against Makoto Yamaya, a Salvation Army major. Yamaya had claimed the Community was part of the Unification Church and that Christian Today had mind-controlled its employees; the court found that these charges had no basis. But it also found that Jang joined a Unification Church student group as a young man, eventually rising to the rank of executive director of another church-affiliated student organization. He then went on to a church-run theological institute, and helped manage the transition when it became Sun Moon University in 1993, subsequently leaving the church. Four former members tell me that Jang often spoke of his time in Moon’s church, including his marriage by Moon in a 1975 mass wedding, an event also affirmed by the Japanese court. . . .

6. In past articles [37], we have noted the close relationship between the Al Jazeera network and the Muslim Brotherhood. [40]  (The Brotherhood is an Islamic fascist organization allied with the Axis in World War II and nurtured in the postwar period by Western intelligence services and Persian Gulf oil kingdoms as anti-communist and anti-Israeli proxy warriors.)

Based in Qatar (which is utilizing I.G. Farben’s Fischer/Tropsch process [41]), the network is growing its presence in the United States.

In addition to its purchase of Al Gore’s “Current TV” and resulting entry into the U.S. cable TV market, Al Jazeera has been broadcasting for some time on the Pacifica Radio network, which caters to the so-called progressive community.

(In past posts, we have noted that Al Jazeera/Muslim Brotherhood’s benighted presence in American media, along with that of Bertelsmann, corresponds to a tee to the Serpent’s Walk scenario [42] we have discussed for many years.)
One place where Al Jazeera’s influence is NOT waxing is Egypt [21].  (See text excerpts below.) In addition to the fact that many of their journalists have resigned [43] in protest over the network’s blatant pro-Brotherhood bias, the Egyptian army has been arresting [44] some of its staff in the crackdown on Morsi’s supporters.
In addition, Al Jazeera correspondents have been barred from news conferences by fellow journalists, because of the network’s pro-Brotherhood stance.

In an update [45], we note that the Egyptian government continues to be at loggerheads with the network.

6a.  “Al-Jazeera Egypt Staff Resign Over Orders To “Favor” The Muslim Brotherhood” by gmbwatch; Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch; 7/9/2013. [21]

Gulf media is reporting that 22 members of the Al-Jazeera Egyptian bureau have resigned in protest over what they say were instructions from the management to “favor the Muslim Brotherhood.” According to a Gulf News [46] report: The news channel Al Jazeera Mubasher Misr saw 22 members of staff resign on Monday in Egypt over what they alleged was coverage that was out of sync with real events in Egypt.

Anchor Karem Mahmoud announced that the staff had resigned in protest against what he called ‘biased coverage’ of the events in Egypt by the Qatari broadcaster.

Mahmoud said that the resignations had been brought about by a perceived lack of commitment and Al Jazeera professionalism in media coverage, adding that ‘the management in Doha provokes sedition among the Egyptian people and has an agenda against Egypt and other Arab countries.’

Mahmoud added that the management used to instruct each staff member to favour the Muslim Brotherhood.

He said that ‘there are instructions to us to telecast certain news’.

Haggag Salama, a correspondent of the network in Luxor, had resigned on Sunday accusing it of ‘airing lies and misleading viewers’.

He announced his resignation in a phone-in interview with Dream 2 channel.

Meanwhile, four Egyptian members of editorial staff at Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha resigned in protest against what they termed a ‘biased editorial policy’ pertaining to the events in Egypt, Ala’a Al Aioti, a news producer, told Gulf News by phone . . .

In 2009, Egyptian authorities were reported [47] to be in the process of revoking Al-Jazeera’s license to broadcast and that the network was planning to close its bureau office in Cairo.

Leaked US State Department cables indicate [48] that Al-Jazeera, based in Qatar and funded by the Qatari government, operates as an arm of Qatari foreign policy which has recently been strongly supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and the recently deposed Mohamed Morsi. . . .

6b.  Note that the government of Qatar subsidized the Morsi regime. It is no surprise, therefore, that Al-Jazeera, also subsidized by the Qatari government, manifested a strong pro-Brotherhood/pro/Morsi bias.

RECOMMENDED READING: “Why Does Al Jazeera Love A Hateful Islamic Extremist?” by gmbwatch; Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch; 7/11/2013. [22]

Bloomberg columnist Jeffrey Goldberg has published an article titled “Why Does Al Jazeera Love a Hateful Islamic Extremist?” [49] that summarizes recent developments adverse for Global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi. The article begins:

So, it hasn’t been the best week for Al Jazeera, the television network owned by Qatar’s despotic ruling family, for the same reason that it hasn’t been a great week for the despotic ruling family itself: the ouster of Egypt’s president, Mohamed Mursi, the bumpkin fundamentalist.

Qatar pumped a lot of money into Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood government, and for what? The Qatari royal family should sue the Brotherhood for malfeasance. So much hope was riding on Mursi’s experiment in political Islam. Although Qatar spreads risk around a bit — it has provided millions of dollars to Islamists in Syria and to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas (now there’s an investment in the future) — Mursi represented its main chance to advance the cause of Islamic fundamentalism.

And now, to add insult to financial injury, Saudi Arabia just promised post-Mursi Egypt $5 billion, and the United Arab Emirates, another of Qatar’s main rivals, has kicked in $3 billion.

As for Al Jazeera, which is scheduled to introduce its American network next month in place of Al Gore’s hapless Current TV, well, let’s put it this way: It will certainly be more popular among Americans than it is among Egyptians. Which isn’t saying much.

Journalists Protest

The millions of Egyptians who rose up against Mursi’s rule also aired their feelings about Al Jazeera’s breathless pro-Muslim Brotherhood coverage. The harsh criticism directed at the network prompted Egyptian reporters to expel Al Jazeera reporters from a recent news conference, and led several journalists to quit Al Jazeera’s Egypt operation, apparently to protest its obvious bias.

One of the correspondents who quit, Haggag Salama, accused his ex-bosses of ‘airing lies and misleading viewers.’ The journalist Abdel Latif el-Menawy is reported to have called Al Jazeera a ‘propaganda channel’ for the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s possible that some of the journalists who quit did so as a matter of self-preservation; the Egyptian military is behaving in predictably heavy-handed ways toward journalists it doesn’t like. But it’s also entirely plausible that they quit because they couldn’t abide Qatari government interference in their reporting. . . .

6c.  “RECOMMENDED READING: Al Jazeera Faces Criticism In Egypt Over Its Coverage Of Muslim Brotherhood”; Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch; 1/8/2014. [45]

The Washington Post has featured a story titled “Al Jazeera Faces Criticism In Egypt Over Its Coverage Of Muslim Brotherhood” which looks at criticism of Al Jazeera over its relationship to the Muslim Brotherhood. The story begins:

“Ever since the military’s ouster of Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi in July, Al Jazeera, the pioneering Arab-language news broadcaster, hasn’t shrunk from calling his removal something the American government won’t: a coup.

That highly loaded declaration, as well as its relentless and, critics say, sympathetic coverage of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood movement, has turned Al Jazeera into a virtual enemy of the state in Egypt. Its journalists have been harassed and banned, and five remain in custody, including three who were arrested last week for allegedly harming national security. Al Jazeera’s local TV studios in Egypt, though not its transnational satellite transmissions, have been shut down, forcing its few remaining Egyptian journalists to work from makeshift facilities, such as a Cairo hotel room. . . .

. . . . Since then, Egyptian authorities and Al Jazeera’s critics — including some of the network’s own employees — have accused it of being a mouthpiece for Morsi and the now-outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

Al Jazeera has given a lot support to the Muslim Brotherhood. There’s no doubt about that,’ said Hugh Miles, a freelance journalist in Cairo and the author of ‘Al-Jazeera: The Inside Story of the Arab News Channel That Is Challenging the West.’ . . .”

. . . . The GMBDW reported earlier this week that Egypt had summoned the Qatari Ambassador to the Egyptian foreign ministry in order to object to Qatari criticism of the crackdown on the Brotherhood as well as to Qatari broadcaster Al-Jazeera’s coverage of events.

The GMBDW reported in September 2013 on the ongoing conflicts regarding Al-Jazeera’s coverage of events in Egypt. In July 2012, the GMBDW had reported on the resignation of the 22 members of the Al-Jazeera Egyptian bureau in protest over what they say were instructions from the management to “favor the Muslim Brotherhood.” In 2009, Egyptian authorities were reported to be in the process of revoking Al-Jazeera’s license to broadcast and that the network was planning to close its bureau office in Cairo.

Leaked US State Department cables indicate that Al-Jazeera, based in Qatar and funded by the Qatari government, operates as an arm of Qatari foreign policy which has recently been strongly supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and the recently deposed Mohamed Morsi. Our predecessor publication extensively covered the role of Qatar as a supporter of the Global Muslim Brotherhood and was the first to report on the strong ties to the Global Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas of Wadah Khanfar, the former Director-General of Al-Jazeera who resigned in 2011 after serving for eight years. . . . .

6d. After the coup in Egypt, Al Jazeera has been paying for hotel rooms for exiled Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood members, who had fled to Qatar.

“Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood Finds Havens Abroad” by Abigail Hauslohner; The Washington Post; 11/5/2013. [23]

. . . . Cast out by — or, perhaps, saved from— the harshest political crackdown [50] in recent Egyptian history, a handful of Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist leaders found refuge here in the Qatari capital, while others traveled to Istanbul, London and Geneva.

The exiles’ community is small, disorganized and ideologically diverse, ranging from relatively moderate Islamist politicians to hard-line Salafists — groups that less than two years ago competed against each other in Egypt’s parliamentary and presidential elections.

Now, as they push back against the July coup that toppled their country’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi [51], they are on the same team.

At the same time, an exile leadership is starting to take shape here among the shimmering high-rises of Doha. Several of the exiles live temporarily in hotel suites paid for by Qatar’s state-run Arabic satellite network Al Jazeera — and it is in those suites and hotel lobbies that the future of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and, more broadly, the strategy and ideology of political Islam in the country may well be charted. . . .

7a. In a series of comments on a blog, there was an exchange about BMW withholding ads [24] when The Atlantic reviewed a book about the Holocaust or WWII. BMW is owned by the Quandt firm, headed for years by Joseph Goebbels’ son-in-law.

7b. In addition to detailing that fascism wasn’t some kind of freak occurrence, we’ve noted the spawning of the Bormann capital network [52] from the political and economic forces underpinning Nazi Germany. Controlling the German core corporations as well as powerful interests around the world, the Bormann group [53] is preeminent on the world economic landscape.

Noting that BMW is controlled by the heirs of Joseph Goebbels (whose stepchild inherited the Quandt industrial empire), the Bloomberg story notes that Mercedes-Benz also has significant capital participation by the Quandts.

“Nazi Goebbels’ Step-Grandchildren Are Hidden Billionaires” by David de Jong; Bloomberg News; 1/28/2013. [25]

In the spring of 1945, Harald Quandt, a 23-year-old officer in the German Luftwaffe, was being held as a prisoner of war by Allied forces in the Libyan port city of Benghazi when he received a farewell letter from his mother, Magda Goebbels — the wife of Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels.

The hand-written note confirmed the devastating news he had heard weeks earlier: His mother had committed suicide with her husband on May 1, after slipping their six children cyanide capsules in Adolf Hitler’s underground bunker in Berlin. . . .

. . . Quandt was released from captivity in 1947. Seven years later, he and his half-brother Herbert — Harald was the only remaining child from Magda Goebbels’ first marriage — would inherit the industrial empire built by their father, Guenther Quandt, which had produced Mauser firearms and anti-aircraft missiles for the Third Reich’s war machine. Among their most valuable assets at the time was a stake in car manufacturer Daimler AG. (DAI) They bought a part of Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) a few years later.

While the half-brothers passed away decades ago, their legacy has endured. Herbert’s widow, Johanna Quandt, 86, and their children Susanne Klatten and Stefan Quandt, have remained in the public eye as BMW’s dominant shareholders. The billionaire daughters of Harald Quandt — Katarina Geller-Herr, 61, Gabriele Quandt, 60, Anette-Angelika May-Thies, 58, and 50-year-old Colleen-Bettina Rosenblat-Mo — have kept a lower profile.

The four sisters inherited about 1.5 billion deutsche marks ($760 million) after the death of their mother, Inge, in 1978, according to the family’s sanctioned biography, “Die Quandts.” They manage their wealth through the Harald Quandt Holding GmbH, a Bad Homburg, Germany-based family investment company and trust named after their father. Fritz Becker, the chief executive officer of the family entities, said the siblings realized average annual returns above 7 percent from its founding in 1981 through 1996. Since then, the returns have averaged 7.6 percent.

“The family wants to stay private and that is an acceptable situation for me,” said Becker in an interview at his Bad Homburg office. “We invest our money globally and if it’s $1 billion, $500 million or $3 billion, who cares?” (Italics added.) . . .

7c. In FTR #155 [54], we presented Paul Manning’s research [55] indicating that the Bormann network features the heirs of key Third Reich officials and military officers, hierarchically structured along lines deriving from the power structure of the Third Reich itself.

The Quandt story excerpted below provides significant depth to Manning’s reportage on the Bormann group and the Underground Reich.

We also noted (in AFA #3 [56]) that Quandt served as the corporate cover for Eichmann deputy Alois Brunner’s postwar work for the Gehlen spy outfit. (The August, 1944 document detailing the Third Reich’s plans to go underground provided for German heavy industry to give accused war criminals jobs to help them survive.)

Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile by Paul Manning; pp. 26-27. [53]

. . . . A smaller con­fer­ence in the after­noon was presided over by Dr. Bosse of the Ger­man Arma­ments Min­istry. It was attended only by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Hecko, Krupp, and Rochling. Dr. Bosse restated Bormann’s belief that the war was all but lost, but that it would be con­tin­ued by Ger­many until cer­tain goals to insure the eco­nomic resur­gence of Ger­many after the war had been achieved. He added that Ger­man indus­tri­al­ists must be pre­pared to finance the con­tin­u­a­tion of the Nazi Party, which would be forced to go under­ground, just as had the Maquis in France. (Italics added.) . . .

. . . . From this day, Ger­man indus­trial firms of all rank were to begin plac­ing their funds—and, wher­ever pos­si­ble, key manpower—abroad, espe­cially in neu­tral coun­tries. Dr. Bosse advised that ‘two main banks can be used for the export of funds for firms who have made no prior arrange­ments; the Basler Han­dels­bank and Schweiz­erische Kred­i­tanstalt of Zurich.’ He also stated, ‘There are a num­ber of agen­cies in Switzer­land which for a five per­cent com­mis­sion will buy prop­erty in Switzer­land for Ger­man firms, using Swiss cloaks.’

“Dr. Bosse closed the meet­ing, observ­ing that ‘after the defeat of Ger­many, the Nazi Party rec­og­nizes that cer­tain of its best known lead­ers will be con­demned as war crim­i­nals. How­ever, in coop­er­a­tion with the indus­tri­al­ists, it is arrang­ing to place its less con­spic­u­ous but most impor­tant mem­bers with var­i­ous Ger­man fac­to­ries as tech­ni­cal experts or mem­bers of its research and design­ing offices.
