Sullivan & Cromwell and Bayer’s High-Profile Corporate Acquistions

Sullivan & Cromwell–the old Dulles law firm–served as the legal adviser to Bayer in its acquisition of Monsanto. Previously, it served Bayer in a similar capacity in its acquisition of Merck’s consumer care division. Sullivan and Cromwell partner John Foster Dulles was instrumental in forming the I.G. Farben firm, of which Bayer was an integral part: ” . . . I.G. Farben was also one of the world’s largest chemical companies–it would produce the Zyklon B gas used at Nazi death camps–and as Foster was bringing it into the nickel cartel, he also helped it establish a global chemical cartel. . . . Foster had clear financial reasons to collaborate with the Nazi regime, and his ideological reason–Hitler was fiercely anti-Bolshevik–was equally compelling. . . . Since 1933, all letters written from the German offices of Sullivan & Cromwell had ended, as required by German regulations, with the salutation Heil Hitler! That did not disturb Foster. . . .”


Bayer Buys Monsanto

Bayer, a former member of the I.G. Farben cartel and a key element of the Bormann capital network has purchased Monsanto with a $66 billion cash bid, the largest corporate cash deal in history, with Sullivan & Cromwell having served as the firm’s adviser. In FTR #912, we noted the prominent entry of Bormann firms into the food industry and speculated about the possibility of introducing genetically-engineered binary pathogens into foodstuffs.


“Enthusiastic Hitlerite” Eleanor–The Third Side of The Dulles Iron Triangle

” . . . Few people outside of the United States had heard of Miss Dulles since she won notoriety during the Roosevelt era as being pro-Hitler. But her quiet, square-jawed personality, much like her two elder brothers, had a lot to do with building up a strong, remilitarized Germany. . . . an ‘enthusiastic Hitlerite’ . . . Miss Dulles remained the key German adviser to her brother [John Foster] during his career as Secretary of State.”


FTR #912 Food for Thought

For more than three decades, we have examined disturbing evidence that AIDS was deliberately created and disseminated among various population groups considered “undesirable.” (Among the broadcasts covering this topic are: AFA #16, FTR #’s 16, 606, and 682.)

Apparently the application of genetic engineering to the discipline of biological warfare, AIDS manifests a highly suspicious epidemiological pattern. Only pure bred Northern Europeans–“Aryans”–featuring the CCR5 delta 32 gene have a hereditary immunity to infection by HIV. People of African extraction have a hereditary susceptibility to HIV infection.

Such an eventuality was directly foreshadowed in a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing for the Pentagon budget: “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.” That is VERY close to being the clinical definition of AIDS.

In this broadcast, we take a frightening look into the future and ask where such developments might lead. With Bayer and BASF poised to purchase Monsanto–a leading GMO-producing company–we fear that genetically-engineered binary pathogens might be introduced into the food supply. (Since the program was recorded, Bayer has finalized the deal, with Sullivan & Cromwell as the U.S. legal counsel for the deal.)

Much of the program underscores the inextricable link between the remarkable and deadly Bormann capital network and I.G. Farben, during and after World War II. (We note that both Bayer and BASF are some of the I.G.’s successor companies, maintaining their profound connection to the Bormann group and the Underground Reich.) In addition to the prospect of the successor companies to I.G. Farben controlling the manufacture and application of GMO’s, we highlight disturbing evidence that other companies and interests that may well be part of the Bormann/Underground Reich nexus are gaining significant market shares of foodstuffs manufacturers that cater to middle, lower-middle and working-class populations.

Will genetically-engineered binary pathogens be introduced into the food supply? Will we be seeing the realization of Hitler’s vision of an “Aryan world” through dietary/culinary genocide?

Program Highlights Include: BASF’s partnership with Monsanto in the latter’s GMO projects; forecasts that BASF may acquire parts of Monsanto and/or Bayer that must be spun-off due to anti-trust considerations; Becker GMBH (a German food company begun by an SS officer with funds purloined during the Holocaust); Becker GMBH’s incorporation into ConAgra foods (almost certainly in exchange for significant stock ownership and/or a place on the board of directors); Brazilian-born, Swiss-based Jorge Paolo Lemann’s purchase of H.J. Heinz, Burger King and Anheuser-Busch; the development of the CCR5, delta 32 gene for successful stem-cell therapy for AIDS sufferers.


FTR #894 Physicians, Heal Thyselves: Hypocrisy and the Trump Campaign

From the Republican Party to European political and intellectual elites to “The New York Times,” everyone is “shocked, shocked” at the fascistic nature of the Trump candidacy. They shouldn’t be–his candidacy is the direct outgrowth of powerful forces that have been at work in this country for decades. After highlighting two op-ed pieces from the “Times,” accurately noting the virulent fascism at the root of the Trump phenomenon, the broadcast notes that neither Europe, where fascism is on the march once again, nor the American so-called “progressive sector,” which has embraced the “Eddie the Friendly Spook,” Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange are in a position to complain. Snowden, Greenwald, Assange et al embody PRECISELY the same forces percolating at the surface of the Trump waters. Much of the broadcast consists of excerpts of an important new book: “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government” by David Talbot. In that worthy volume, Talbot chronicles the role of the Dulles brothers and Sullivan and Cromwell in the capitalization of Hitler’s Germany and the cover-up of the Nazi flight capital program, Dulles’s long collaboration with Nazi General Reinhard Gehlen, Gehlen’s pursuit (with Dulles) of the Cold War as a continuation of Hitler’s war against the U.S.S.R., the Dulles/Gehlen collaboration in the formation of the fascist networks known as “Stay Behind/Gladio.” The program concludes with review of the Crusade For Freedom, a Dulles project which culminated in the formation of a Nazi branch of the GOP. Program Highlights Include: the genesis of the Bormann network and its apparent collaboration with the Dulles networks; Prescott Bush, Sr.’s role as the Senate’s liaison with Dulles’s CIA; the roles of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, William Casey and George H.W. Bush with the Crusade For Freedom; “The New York Times” and its own incorporation of Third Reich alumni as part of its collaboration with CIA.


FTR #887 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The ongoing occupation of an Oregon wildlife preserve in Oregon by paramilitary forces led by Ammon Bundy (son of Cliven Bundy) may seem far removed from the gilded realms in which the Koch Brothers move. They may also appear to be of an entirely different political stripe from the likes of Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. That is not the case. In fact, the “Bundyists” are realizing the agenda of the Wise Use movement and the Koch brothers, both advocates of ceding control of federal lands to local control, in order that corporate interests such as timber, mining and cattle ranching can use the territory for their own use and profit. By the same token, the likes of Edward Snowden and Julian Assange have arrogated to themselves the use, control and dissemination of sensitive information that was not theirs to own or distribute. David Golumbia noted the attitude of “coders” such as Snowden, Assange and “hacktivists ” . . . the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it . . . mem­bers of demo­c­ra­tic poli­ties have no choice but to accept them hav­ing that role.” Turning to turmoil in Europe, the recent assaults on women by Middle Eastern immigrants in German, Finnish and other cities on the continent have fueled the rise of fascist groups, minting valuable political coinage from the assaults. Some observers compared a recent rampage in Leipzig with the 1938 Kristallnacht pogrom. The broadcast concludes with an overview of P-2 Lodge grandmaster Licio Gelli, the recently deceased fascist who profoundly influenced events on three continents. Program Highlights Include: Fred C. Koch’s construction of an oil refinery for Hitler; Ex-CIA officer and author Robert Baer’s belief that Hitler escaped Germany at the end of the war; review of the participation of Fox News host Andrew Napolitano and Snowden Presidential candidate of choice Ron Paul at a libertarian students conference; review of the participation of Edward Snowden at that same conference; review of Carl Lundstrom’s financing of the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrat fascist party and his funding of the Pirate Bay website that hosted WikiLeaks.


German Corporations Buying Major U.S. Businesses

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

FTR #810 A Prince Too Far

Pop conspiracy theory casts the Bilderberger group in a sensationalist, politically and historically illiterate “New World Order” context. In this broadcast, we examine the history of Prince Bernhard, the former SS officer and I.G. Farben spy who founded the group, against the background of the Battle of Arnhem (Operation Market Garden) in September of 1944. As head of the Dutch “resistance,” apparent double agent Bernhard sacrificed a resistance fighter named Christian Lindemans (code named “King Kong”), who took the blame for the deliberate betrayal of the Allied battle plan. Sabotage of the Arnhem operation has also been partly attributed to Peter Carrington (later Lord Carrington and former British Foreign Secretary during the run-up to the Falkalands War.) Attacked for his stunning lack of insight with regard to the Argentine fascist junta’s invasion of those islands, Carrington has never been properly vetted with regard to the betrayal of part of the British battle plan for the Falkalnds campaign. The program also examines the fascist activities and involvements of Bernhard’s heirs in the Royal Family of the Netherlands.


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

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


What’s Wrong with This Picture?

In the aftermath of the Ukraine coup, wanted posters for former president Yanukovich sprang up all over that country and were liberally distributed in the media. QUICK: If you were going to craft and distribute wanted posters in the United States, would you have the text in Ukrainian?
