COMMENT: This post sup­ple­ments dis­cus­sion in the last part of FTR #1180.

Insti­tu­tion­al­ized as an inter­na­tion­al mar­tyr for his work res­cu­ing Euro­pean Jews dur­ing the Holo­caust, the claim that Raoul Wal­len­berg’s reput­ed work ran­som­ing legal immu­ni­ty for Hein­rich Himm­ler with those Jews is but­tressed by his rela­tion­ship with Ger­man indus­tri­al­ist Ludolph Chris­tensen and–through him–SS Gen­er­al Karl Wolff (right.)

Wolff was Himm­ler’s per­son­al adju­tant.

The Wal­len­bergs epit­o­mize the car­tel-based, glob­al­ized cor­po­rate econ­o­my which had eclipsed the nation state by the peri­od between the World Wars.

Exem­pli­fy­ing the fam­i­ly’s posi­tion in the Wall Street/cartel pan­theon is George Mur­nane of the Wal­len­berg hold­ing com­pa­ny A.B. Investor: ” . . . . In Novem­ber 1940, a vot­ing trust agree­ment was set up in the Unit­ed States under which George Mur­nane was des­ig­nat­ed by the Wal­len­bergs’ Enskil­da Bank as the sole vot­ing trustee with com­plete pow­er to vote the Amer­i­can Bosch stock at stock­hold­ers’ meet­ings in the Unit­ed States. The vot­ing trust arrange­ment pro­vid­ed that if George Mur­nane should die, his suc­ces­sor should be named by John Fos­ter Dulles, senior part­ner of Sul­li­van & Cromwell, the law firm which rep­re­sents the Wal­len­bergs and the Enskil­da Bank in the Unit­ed States. . . .”

“‘Swedish Schindler’ death linked to Ger­many;” The Local [SE]; 1/15/2015.

Raoul Wal­len­berg was a young diplo­mat post­ed in Nazi-con­trolled Budapest dur­ing the war and he saved the lives of thou­sands of Jews by pro­vid­ing them with Swedish doc­u­men­ta­tion. . . .

. . . . Now, new infor­ma­tion links Wal­len­berg – only the sec­ond for­eign­er to become an hon­orary cit­i­zen of the Unit­ed States, after British wartime Prime Min­is­ter Win­ston Churchill – to Ger­man busi­ness­man Ludolph Chris­tensen.

In the ear­ly 1940s, Wal­len­berg was an exec­u­tive in the Swedish trad­ing com­pa­ny Mel­la­neu­ropeiska AB, which man­aged to import to Swe­den large quan­ti­ties of food­stuffs, includ­ing spe­cial­i­ty items such as cig­a­rettes and fruit, which were hard to obtain due to the war.

While these trans­ac­tions have been well-known, it has now emerged that almost all of them were car­ried out in coop­er­a­tion with Ludolph Chris­tensen, accord­ing to an arti­cle pub­lished on the web­site raoul-wallenberg.eu.

What do Swedes know about Raoul Wal­len­berg?

Chris­tensen was pro­tect­ed by Gen­er­al Karl Wolff, right-hand man of SS leader Hein­rich Himm­ler, one of the main archi­tects of the Holo­caust, which Wal­len­berg was fight­ing.

The rela­tion­ship “shows the com­plex­i­ty of trade rela­tions in times of war and could pro­vide new ways of solv­ing Wal­len­berg’s dis­ap­pear­ance,” the study’s authors, Susanne Berg­er, Vadim Birstein and Craig McK­ay, wrote.

New evi­dence uncov­ered by the researchers also shows that the Ger­man busi­ness­man also met Wal­len­berg at the start of his Budapest mis­sion, in the sum­mer of 1944. . . .

  1. This is one fas­ci­nat­ing post, Mr. Emory, because it demon­strates a con­cise & viable link­age between the pre-WWII inter­na­tion­al busi­ness car­tels & the damned pirates that ran them.

    I should like to add before get­ting to crux of my com­ment, that SS-Ober­grup­pen­führer Karl Wolff worked for Deutsche Bank AG when he was a mem­ber of the Freiko­rps & SS-Haupt­sturm­führer Otto Albrecht Alfred von Bolschwing was a part­ner in Bank voor Onroerende Zak­en (both men were piv­otal in orches­trat­ing the liq­ui­da­tion of mil­lions of civil­ians dur­ing the “Blut und Boden” cam­paign in Nazi-occu­pied Eura­sia, & lat­er, senior CIA assets).

    And if I may go off a lit­tle on tan­gent, to demon­strate how dead­ly these fas­cist con­nec­tions to pre-WWII inter­na­tion­al bank­ing were, allow to demon­strate anoth­er per­son­’s con­nec­tions to the human-traf­fick­ing rack­et (the barter of Jews for free­dom) in Hun­gary: Fer­enc Nagy.

    Specif­i­cal­ly Fer­enc Nagy’s con­nec­tions to a com­pa­ny called “Per­ma­nent Indus­tri­al Expo­si­tions” or PERMINDEX, & the bank that over­saw PER­MIN­DEX’s assets: J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion.

    For lit­tle back­ground on PERMINDEX, I will be quote from a book rec­om­mend­ed to me by my friend, the late Mr. Albarel­li, authored by Pro­fes­sor Jef­frey M. Bale, titled “The Dark­est Sides Of Pol­i­tics, I: Post­war Fas­cism, Covert Oper­a­tions And Ter­ror­ism”

    The fol­low­ing quote can be found on page 120, in the ref­er­ence sec­tion of Chap­ter 3 titled “Post­war Neo-Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­als, Part I: Nazi Escape Net­works, The Mou­ve­ment Social Européennes, Europäis­che Neu-Ord­nung, and Jeune Europe”

    QUOTE — “... 66. For more infor­ma­tion about Merex, see Heinz Vielain, Waf­fen­schmuggel im Staat­sauf­trag was lange in Bonn geheim bleiben musste? (Her­ford: Busse See­wald, 1986); Lee, Beast Reawak­ens, pp. 183–4, who claims that Sko­rzeny helped found the com­pa­ny (in addi­tion to doing busi­ness with ex-CIA offi­cer Sam Cum­mings’ Inter­arms Com­pa­ny and becom­ing a “major weapons bro­ker” for the Salazar regime); and González-Mata, Ter­ror­is­mo inter­na­tion­al, pp. 146–51, who quotes a 13 Sep­tem­ber 1975 telegram pre­pared by an offi­cial at the Por­tuguese embassy in Paris for the details con­cern­ing Spíno­la’s con­tacts.

    Among the oth­er per­sons with whom Spíno­la sup­pos­ed­ly met dur­ing his sum­mer vis­its to sev­er­al Euro­pean coun­tries were Franz-Josef Strauß of the Bavar­i­an Christlich-Soziale Union (CSU: Chris­t­ian Social Union); Sánchez Cov­isa of the GCR; bil­lion­aire Jorge Jardim, an ex-Sec­re­tary of State appoint­ed by Salazar and a key finan­cial backer of anti-inde­pen­dence orga­ni­za­tions in Mozam­bique and oth­er Por­tuguese colonies; Her­mann Josef Abs of Krupp, pre­vi­ous­ly head of the Deutsche Bank under the Nazi regime; lead­ers of the ELP; John McCone, for­mer­ly CIA direc­tor and at that time­head of the Inter­na­tion­al Tele­phone and Tele­graph (ITT), which had pre­vi­ous­ly played a key role in anti-Allende sub­ver­sion in Chile; sev­er­al CIA offi­cials includ­ing an adju­tant of Lieu­tenant Gen­er­al Ver­non A. Wal­ters, then Deputy Direc­tor of the agency; and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from a num­ber of oth­er multi­na­tion­al com­pa­nies and arms traf­fick­ing firms, includ­ing Bel­gium’s Société Générale, Petro­fi­na, ELF (a French oil com­pa­ny that was deeply impli­cat­ed in the so-called snif­fer plane scan­dal), MGM (an arms trad­ing com­pa­ny in Mod­e­na that Ital­ian judge Luciano Violante believed was linked to indi­vid­u­als asso­ci­at­ed with the Fronte Nationale (Nation­al Front), the orga­ni­za­tion­al back­bone of the Decem­ber 1970 Borgh­ese Coup and lat­er plots), and Per­min­dex (an alleged Swiss-based CIA pro­pri­etary com­pa­ny...” — END QUOTE.

    The Direc­tor of the Cen­tral Intel­li­gence Agency dur­ing the events cli­max­ing to, dur­ing and in the sub­se­quent cov­er-up of the mur­der of Pres­i­dent Kennedy, one John Alexan­der McCone, was, for all intents, con­struc­tions, and pur­pos­es, a cen­tral play­er in the web of inter­na­tion­al fas­cist ele­ments sur­round­ing the phe­nom­e­non of state-spon­sored ter­ror­ism and the prop­a­ga­tion of “far-right” ide­o­log­i­cal hat­ed towards legit­i­mate demo­c­ra­t­ic estab­lish­ment (for what it’s worth).

    As late as 1975, CIA Direc­tor John McCone is covert­ly work­ing with the fas­cist-filled orga­ni­za­tion PERMINDEX!

    To expound just for a moment on what exact­ly PERMINDEX was and what forces sur­round­ed it, I will start by quot­ing from pgs. 385–386 of the book “Des­tiny Betrayed (Sec­ond Edi­tion) JFK, Cuba, And The Gar­ri­son Case” by James DiEu­ge­nio.

    QUOTE — “...When the announce­ment for Per­min­dex was first made in Switzer­land in late 1956, its prin­ci­pal back­ing was to come from a local banker named Hans Selig­man. But as more inves­ti­ga­tion by the local papers was done, it became clear that the real backer was J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion. This infor­ma­tion was quite reveal­ing. Schroder’s had been close­ly asso­ci­at­ed with Allen Dulles and the CIA for years. Allen Dulles’s con­nec­tions to the Schroder bank­ing fam­i­ly went back to the thir­ties when his law firm, Sul­li­van and Cromwell, first began rep­re­sent­ing them through him. Lat­er, Dulles was the bank’s Gen­er­al Coun­sel. In fact, when Dulles was the CIA Direc­tor, Schroder’s was report­ed­ly a repos­i­to­ry for a fifty mil­lion dol­lar con­tin­gency fund that Dulles per­son­al­ly con­trolled. Schroder’s was a wel­come con­duit because the bank ben­e­fit­ed from pre­vi­ous CIA over­throws in Guatemala and Iran. Anoth­er rea­son that there began to be a furor over Per­min­dex in Switzer­land was the fact that the bank’s founder, Baron Kurt von Schroder, was asso­ci­at­ed with the Third Reich, specif­i­cal­ly Hein­rich Himm­ler.

    The project now became stalled in Switzer­land. It now moved to Rome. In a Sep­tem­ber 1969 inter­view Shaw did for Pent­house Mag­a­zine, he told James Phe­lan that he only grew inter­est­ed in the project when it moved to Italy. Which was in Octo­ber 1958. Yet a State Depart­ment cable dat­ed April 9 of that year says that Shaw showed great inter­est in Per­min­dex from the out­set.

    One can see why. The board of direc­tors as made up of bankers who had been tied up with fas­cist gov­ern­ments, peo­ple who worked the Jew­ish refugee rack­et dur­ing World War II, a for­mer mem­ber of Mussolini’s cab­i­net, and the son-in-law of Hjal­mar Schacht, the eco­nom­ic wiz­ard behind the Third Reich, who was a friend of Shaw’s. These peo­ple would all appeal to the con­ser­v­a­tive Shaw. There were at least four inter­na­tion­al news­pa­pers that exposed the bizarre activ­i­ties of Per­min­dex when it was in Rome. One prob­lem was the mys­te­ri­ous source of fund­ing: no one knew where it was com­ing from. Anoth­er was that its activ­i­ties report­ed­ly includ­ed assas­si­na­tion attempts on French Pre­mier Charles De Gaulle. Which would make sense since the found­ing mem­ber of Per­min­dex, Fer­enc Nagy, was a close friend of Jacques Soustelle. Soustelle was a leader of the OAS, a group of for­mer French offi­cers who broke with De Gaulle over his Alger­ian pol­i­cy. They lat­er made sev­er­al attempts on De Gaulle’s life, which the CIA was privy to. Again, this mys­te­ri­ous source of fund­ing, plus the rightwing, neo-Fas­cist direc­tors cre­at­ed anoth­er wave of con­tro­ver­sy. One news­pa­per wrote that the orga­ni­za­tion may have been “a crea­ture of the CIA . . . set up as a cove for the trans­fer of CIA . . . funds in Italy for legal polit­i­cal-espi­onage activ­i­ties.” The Schroder con­nec­tion would cer­tain­ly sug­gest that...” — END QUOTE.

    Just to put that last part into per­spec­tive, Allen Welsh Dulles, the CIA Direc­tor who Pres­i­dent Kennedy sacked, could at any­time, pull funds for his per­son­al use, to the tune of $50,000,000.00 USD. Now, adjust­ing for a 737.9% cumu­la­tive rate of infla­tion, in this most foul year of our lord, two-thou­sand and twen­ty-one, that is the equiv­a­lent of $418,936,274.51 USD!

    Allen Dulles (my per­son­al prime sus­pect in the mur­der of Pres­i­dent Kennedy) could, at any giv­en moment, pull half a bil­lion dol­lars out of thin air for his own per­son­al use?!

    Funds that were back­ing a CIA-front com­pa­ny filled with real, liv­ing and breath­ing World War II “Axis Pow­er” financiers?

  2. Con­tin­u­ing with the PERMINDEX para­dox, I shall now quote from the notes sec­tion of an arti­cle pub­lished by Pro­fes­sor Peter Dale Scott in The Asia-Pacif­ic Jour­nal. The arti­cle is titled, “The Dulles Broth­ers, Har­ry Dex­ter White, Alger Hiss, and the Fate of the Pri­vate Pre-War Inter­na­tion­al Bank­ing Sys­tem”:

    QUOTE — “... 62. The J. Hen­ry Schröder & Co. Bank and J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (Schroban­co, the firm of which Allen Dulles had been an offi­cer) had a finan­cial stake in all three of Allen Dulles’ major CIA covert oper­a­tions. Schröder had financed the cre­ation of Anglo-Per­sian (lat­er Anglo-Iran­ian) oil: thus Frank Cyril Tiarks was a part­ner both in J. Hen­ry Schröder & Co., and also in the Anglo-Iran­ian Oil Com­pa­ny (1917–1948). (He was also a mem­ber of the Ribben­trop-inspired Anglo-Ger­man Fel­low­ship and of the British Union of Fas­cists.) Schroban­co had a stake in the Inter­na­tion­al Rail­ways of Cen­tral Amer­i­ca, a firm devel­oped in con­junc­tion with what became Unit­ed Fruit in order to ship out Unit­ed Fruit’s bananas in Guatemala. Both Schröders and Schroban­co were heav­i­ly invest­ed in Cuban sug­ar; and M.E. Rion­da, pres­i­dent of Cuba Cane Cor­po­ra­tion, was a mem­ber of Schrobanco’s board...” — END QUOTE.

    The above infor­ma­tion speaks for itself. In short, as far as I see it (and I have fought in com­bat for the Unit­ed States), all U.S. covert action dur­ing the reign of Allen Dulles was for the ben­e­fit of his investors in Schorder Bank. PERIOD! The “Cold War” was a sham to keep him and a few hun­dred of his clos­est fas­cist busi­ness part­ners con­trol­ling 99% of all Earth­ly resources.

    The 1953 Iran­ian coup d’é­tat code-named “Oper­a­tion Ajax” and the tor­ture and mass-mur­der of lib­er­al social democ­rats that fol­lowed, was pri­mar­i­ly for the ben­e­fit of J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion share­hold­ers.

    The 1954 Guatemalan coup d’é­tat, code-named “Oper­a­tion PBSUCCESS” and the indige­nous geno­cide that fol­lowed, was pri­mar­i­ly for the ben­e­fit of J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion share­hold­ers.

    The 1961 anti-Cas­tro ter­ror­ist-led inva­sion at bahía de Cochi­nos, code-named “Oper­a­tion Zap­a­ta” and the non-stop (to this very sec­ond) U.S. state-spon­sored ter­ror­ist strikes against the peo­ples of that tiny island, was pri­mar­i­ly for the ben­e­fit of J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion share­hold­ers.

    The 1965 Indone­sian coup d’é­tat which facil­i­tat­ed the mass-mur­der of three-mil­lion human beings, was main­ly for the ben­e­fit of a J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­per­a­tion invest­ment called “Ned­er­land­sche Nieuw Guinea Petro­le­um Maatschap­pij” (a joint ven­ture between Sau­di Aram­co, Inter­es­sen­ge­mein­schaft Far­benin­dus­trie AG, Freeport Sul­phur Com­pa­ny, & Stan­dard Oil) & 60% of the stock in NNGPM was con­trolled by Nazi Reit­er-Schutzstaffel Prince Bern­hard of Lippe-Biester­feld, a mem­ber of the “Bilder­berg Group” & the CIA con­trolled “Amer­i­can Com­mit­tee on Unit­ed Europe”, which spawned the mod­ern Euro­pean Union!

    And J. Hen­ry Schroder Bank­ing Cor­po­ra­tion is the force behind PERMINDEX?

    And PERMINDEX was financ­ing the trea­so­nous 1961 mur­der attempts against French Pres­i­dent Charles de Gaulle?

    Clear­ly, Allen Welsh Dulles was the point man to any covert oper­a­tion PERMINDEX was involved with in 1963, domes­ti­cal­ly speak­ing, in the Unit­ed States of Amer­i­ca.

    And Allen Dulles’s replace­ment, John Alexan­der McCone knew all about these cryp­to-fas­cist machi­na­tions. PERIOD.

    And for any per­son who dares to retort the infor­ma­tion that I have post­ed here, I would turn your atten­tion to the Cen­tral Intel­li­gence Agency doc­u­ments at the fol­low­ing links:

    https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/2018/104–10181-10114.pdf

    https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/104–10291-10009.pdf

    The first one clear­ly demon­strates that PERMINDEX mem­bers actu­al­ly offered their ser­vices to the CIA, & it was not, in fact, a CIA front com­pa­ny, as it has been alleged for about fifty years.

    The con­trol offi­cer for the first doc­u­ment is CIA Covert Action Staff of the Direc­torate of Plans, Cord “The Cyclops” Mey­er Jr.

    The sec­ond PERMINDEX doc­u­ment states, quite plain­ly, that the very first Gen­er­al Coun­sel for PERMINDEX was Unit­ed States Dis­trict Judge of the Unit­ed States Dis­trict Court for the South­ern Dis­trict of New York, Lloyd Fran­cis MacMa­hon!

    This is mon­strous, because for rough­ly four decades, Chief Judge MacMa­hon rule against any civil­ian for “Free­dom of Infor­ma­tion Act” requests about CIA activ­i­ties, specif­i­cal­ly CIA oper­a­tions hav­ing to do with Robert Aime Maheu’s actives!

    Chief Judge MacMa­hon also was a mem­ber of the dra­con­ian “Unit­ed States For­eign Intel­li­gence Sur­veil­lance Court” between 1985 & 1989, the time peri­od when “Iran-Con­tra” relat­ed covert oper­a­tions were lit­er­al­ly the focal inter­est of the entire US Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Com­mu­ni­ty!

    I should also note in this sec­ond CIA doc­u­ment, that the con­trol offi­cer for said doc­u­ment is Robert Trum­bull “The Crow” Crow­ley, CIA Deputy Direc­tor of Clan­des­tine Oper­a­tions Divi­sion, & chief Deputy Direc­tor for Oper­a­tions liai­son to the CIA’s Coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence Staff (two posi­tions Crow­ley simul­ta­ne­ous­ly held for near­ly three decades!)

    It is no small won­der that the machi­na­tions of these WWII-era fas­cist finan­cial insti­tu­tions are still in effect:

    They are the mar­row of the Cen­tral Intel­li­gence Agency...
