COMMENT: Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger opined that the Capi­tol Riot remind­ed him of Die Kristall­nacht. He is wrong. The Capi­tol Riot most close­ly resem­bles the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923.

To under­stand the “deep pol­i­tics” of Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger, we recap dis­cus­sion of William Arm­st­ed Robin­son, the reclu­sive mag­nate who was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s num­ber one finan­cial backer. Robin­son appears to be a cat’s paw for the intru­sion of big Ger­man cap­i­tal into the U.S. Air Car­go mar­ket. (This intru­sion is appar­ent­ly tak­ing place through Deutsche Post—the Ger­man postal monopoly—and its con­trol of DHL, the com­pa­ny Robin­son found­ed.)

We cov­ered Robin­son and Schwarzeneg­ger at length in FTR #492.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Robin­son’s secre­tive posi­tion and habits; Robin­son’s appar­ent role as a pro­fes­sion­al front for Deutsche Post (the Ger­man gov­ern­men­t’s postal ser­vice); Charges by DHL com­peti­tors that Robin­son and DHL have been eva­sive in their pro­fes­sion­al rep­re­sen­ta­tions; Robin­son’s prob­a­ble role as a front man for the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion.

In FTR #‘s 421, 422, 429 and 496–among oth­er programs–we exam­ined indi­ca­tions that Schwarzeneg­ger’s oft-pro­fessed aver­sion to Nazism may mask an affil­i­a­tion with that peri­od.

1. “Reclu­sive Mil­lion­aire Tops Schwarzeneg­ger Donors” [AP]; www.cnn.com; 12/3/2004; p.1.

He’s spent his mil­lions on exot­ic show hors­es, a home for retired chimpanzees—and California’s actor-gov­er­nor. William Arm­st­ed Robin­son, founder of the DHL couri­er ser­vice, has qui­et­ly become a top donor of Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger, form­ing a tri­umvi­rate with real estate devel­op­er Alex Spanos and Span­ish-lan­guage TV exec­u­tive Jer­ry Peren­chio. While his coun­ter­parts are well-known and well-estab­lished in California—Spanos owns the San Diego Charg­ers, Peren­chio heads Univision—the 65-year-old Robin­son is not. He’s an elu­sive recluse who has spent the last decade sequestered in Ida­ho, where he has two homes. Robinson’s first major con­tri­bu­tion to a big-time politi­cian is the $650,000 he has giv­en Schwarzeneg­ger. . . .

  2. Quite right. Chump sat in the White House after hav­ing told the Chump­is­tas he was going with them. There he sat await­ing news of ONE leg­is­la­tor tak­en off the board or the cap­ture of the doc­u­ments from the states. At that point out comes the ‘legal’ fan­ta­sy that the process can­not go for­ward.... I ask Chump­is­tas “who is Roy Cohn?” they go “Huh?”... no cure for stu­pid I guess..
