1935-1936: Arming The Nazis, Gangsters For Capitalism, Hanging Out With Hitler, Blackmailing Hoover And Truth, Justice Or The American Way

1935: GERMANY. At the personal request of Adolf Hitler, General Motors constructs a new plant near Berlin for the manufacture of the Wehrmacht's “Blitz” military truck. The Blitz truck is a vital element in the Wehrmacht’s planned blitzkrieg (lightning war) against Czechoslovakia, Poland, France and other European nations. General Motors also builds armored cars and tanks for the Nazi conquest of Europe and for the planned invasion and destruction of the Soviet Union. It's just good business.

1935-41: ITALY. John J. McCloy, a Wall Street lawyer with strong connections to the Morgans, Harrimans and Rockefellers, is active in providing finance for the rebuilding of Germany by the Nazis and counts among his distinguished clientele Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.

1935: UNITED STATES. After millions of Americans have died from the deficiency disease, pellagra, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to control the disease. The director of the USPHS admits that the agency had known for more than two decades that pellagra is caused by a dietary deficiency of niacin but did nothing because the majority of deaths occurred among poor black people.

1935: UNITED STATES. The battle cry of the New World Order, complete with whips and gas chambers, is sounded, not by designated villain-of-record Adolf Hitler, but by.....the Rockefellers. Man the Unknown by Dr. Alexis Carrel of the Rockefeller Institute in New York is published. The Nobel Prize-winner lays out very clearly the methods to be followed by the New World Order.

"Enormous sums are now required to maintain prisons and insane asylums," writes Carrel. "Why do we preserve these useless and harmful beings? This fact must be squarely faced. Why should society not dispose of the criminals and the insane in a more economical manner?...The community must be protected against troublesome and dangerous elements....Perhaps prisons should be abolished...The conditioning of the petty criminal with the whip, or some more scientific procedure, followed by a short stay in hospital, would probably suffice to insure (sic) order. (Criminals, including those) who have...misled the public on important matters, should be humanely and economically disposed of in small euthanasic institutions supplied with proper gases. A similar treatment could be advantageously applied to the insane, guilty of criminal acts.''

Presumably this disposal "with proper gases" of persons who have "misled the public on important matters" would not apply to people who are named Bush, Walker, Harriman, Rockefeller or Dulles. Who would run the country?

1935: PHILIPPINES. Filipinos rise up against the U.S. occupation of their country in the Sakdal uprising, taking control of government buildings in fourteen towns. In Tagalog, one of the major Philippine languages, Sakdal means "accuse". The word signifies the anger of Filipinos who are now half-starved, landless peasants working as virtual slave labor on huge plantations under the American occupation of their country. The Sakdals call for lower taxes on the poor, land reform and an immediate end to the U.S. occupation. Troops of the U.S. puppet government of the Philippines are used to crush the Sakdal rebellion, slaughtering over a hundred Filipinos and wounding hundreds more.

1935: UNITED STATES. John Foster Dulles who, through the robber barons' favorite law firm, Sullivan and Cromwell, is orchestrating arms and finance for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis for their takeover of Germany and ultimately all of Europe, is the author of a major article in the Atlantic Monthly entitled "The Road to Peace." Dulles explains away Germany’s secret rearmament, which he has had a key role in arranging, as an action to "take back their freedom". Dulles assures Americans that the Nazis and the Italian Fascists are interested only in peace. Would John Foster Dulles lie?

1935: UNITED STATES. The conspiracy of Nazi armaments maker General Motors and Nazi fuel supplier Standard Oil with Mack Truck, Phillips Petroleum and Firestone Tires to increase car, bus, fuel and tire sales in the U.S. by destroying streetcar and urban light rail systems isn't going quite as quickly as the conspirators might have hoped; too many utilities are refusing to sell out their systems.

But then, as though by magic, everything changes. Congress enacts the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935 which has the effect of stripping transit lines away from their utilities and forcing them onto the market where they are snapped up and destroyed by General Motors, Standard Oil et al.

1935: PUERTO RICO. At the University of Puerto Rico in Río Piedras police massacre four members of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party (PNP), which is struggling to end the U.S. occupation of Puerto Rico. Another PNP member is seriously wounded. A witness testifies that she saw police shooting at the PNP members and one policeman screaming not to let them "escape alive". Naturally, no charges are laid against the police involved. They are, instead, promoted.

There is today more widespread misery and destitution and far more unemployment in Puerto Rico than at any previous time in its history.
Harold Ickes, U.S. Secretary of the Interior, 1935

1935: UNITED STATES. In an article in the publication Common Sense, Major General Smedley Butler, former commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, states that the Harriman family's notorious Brown Brothers, Harriman bank is behind the U.S. Marines acting like 'racketeers' and 'gangsters' in order to exploit the peasants of Nicaragua. Unsurprisingly, Nazi financier Prescott Bush, the grandfather of George "I'm A Lyin' Guy" Bush, is Managing Director of Brown Brothers, Harriman.
I spent thirty three years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.

I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents. Smedley Butler

1935: UNITED STATES. Hitler Project kingpin John Foster Dulles narrowly misses being indicted in a case against the Union Electric Company of Missouri. Investigators had discovered that Union Electric had bribed the entire Missouri state legislature. Securities and Exchange Commission general counsel, Travis Lane, cynically attributes the failure of the Grand Jury to indict Dulles to his "charm".

1935: UNITED STATES. The guilty may escape justice in the U.S., provided they're wealthy and well-connected, but for the poor, no matter how innocent, it's a whole other story. Nine black youths are falsely accused of rape by two white prostitutes in Scottsboro, Alabama. After being rescued from a lynch mob, the Scottsboro boys as they come to be known, are tried and convicted by an all-white jury in a matter of days. All but one, a twelve year old, are sentenced to death.

The nightmare lasts for years with appeals, a second and then a third trial. The defendants finally have competent counsel, but Samuel Leibowitz and Joseph Brodsky are northerners and Jews and Alabama juries don't much like either. Most of the defendants are once again convicted and sentenced to long prison terms.

Recognizing that the convictions are dubious, to say the least, Alabama Governor Bibb Graves plans to pardon all of the defendants before leaving office in 1938. During the customary pre-pardon interview with the Scottsboro boys, however, Graves is angered by their hostility and refusal to admit guilt, so he leaves them to rot in prison.

1935-1972: UNITED STATES. The Bureau of Investigation (BI) changes its name to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) but, the Bureau is still the personal instrument of control, revenge and repression of megalomaniacal transvestite and gay basher, J. Edgar Hoover, whose personal crime wave against the people of the United States will continue unabated until his long overdue death in 1972.

Wealthy friends, including leading Mafia figures, give Hoover and his gay lover, FBI Assistant Director Clyde Tolson, lavish hospitality and investment "tips". In return, Hoover protects them from criminal investigation and denies the very existence of the Mafia. Media critics are terrorized and/or blackmailed into silence.

Under Hoover, the FBI will keep files on every politician who makes it to to Capitol Hill, providing a rich source of blackmail material with which to control American politicians. Hoover's appearances before the House Appropriations Committee are, therefore, not too stressful. From 1924 to 1971, there will not be a single public hearing into the ever-escalating FBI budget.

Throughout his reign, Hoover will fake crime statistics, misrepresent responsibility for the solution of crimes and terrorize FBI agents and employees who know they must do Hoover's bidding or else.

1935-41: PANAMA CANAL ZONE. The Harriman and Bush family-controlled Hamburg-Amerika shipping line gives even more help to the Nazi spy apparatus, the Abwehr, when Kurt Lindberg, manager of the Hamburg-Amerika office in Colon, Panama is named resident director of the Abwehr's Panama operation. Over the coming years, Abwehr spies at Hamburg-Amerika will accumulate a host of information on the Panama Canal, its vulnerabilties and defenses with a view to putting it out of commission in the event of war between Nazi Germany and the U.S.

1935-1972: UNITED STATES. The FBI under Director J. Edgar Hoover conducts headline-grabbing manhunts during the mid-thirties but can't seem to get around to going after the Mafia which operates in the U.S. with no interference from the FBI. The mob is run nationally by Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky who had divided up the country among the various Mafia families at a meeting in Atlantic City in 1929.

J. Edgar Hoover and and his lover, FBI Assistant Director Clyde Tolson, frequent the Stork Club in New York, owned by Mafia kingpin Frank Costello. The Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation actually sits with Costello in the Stork Club and meets him at other times for coffee or drinks and also in the barber shop at the Waldorf Hotel. Costello's main occupation is the gambling racket, especially fixing horse racing in the U.S. Chuck Giancana, brother of Chicago Mafia boss Sam Giancana, will later tell a journalist, "Hoover didn't want an envelope each month, we gave him something better, tips on fixed races. He could bet ten thousand dollars on a horse that showed twenty to one odds if he wanted…and he has."

But the Mafia doesn't use just carrots with Hoover, they have a big stick hanging over him too. On New Year's Eve 1936, Hoover and Tolson are seen holding hands in the Stork Club. The Mafia-owned Stork Club reportedly has two way mirrors in the toilets and hidden microphones at certain tables. Later, mob figures will tell journalists that Meyer Lansky had photographs of Hoover and Tolson performing homosexual acts with each other. Hoover's homosexuality was well known to the Mafia and they reputedly had blackmail material on him extending back to the 1920s and Hoover's supposed arrest on charges of homosexuality in New Orleans.

Another longtime Hoover/Mafia hangout is Joe's Stone Crabs Restaurant in Miami, frequented by Costello, Al Capone and Meyer Lansky. The wife of the owner remembers J. Edna and Clyde sitting in the restaurant having a fine old time as some of the FBI's "Most Wanted" ate undisturbed a few tables away. Staff at Gatti's Restaurant in Miami remember Hoover and Meyer Lansky being in the restaurant together, sometimes sitting at adjoining tables.

In 1946, the owner of a major racing wire service begins telling the FBI all he knows about the mob and their connections "which lead to very high places". Hoover refuses to provide protection and James Ragen is soon murdered. After Ragen is killed, Hoover orders all investigations into his allegations dropped.

Agents knew perfectly well that it was FBI policy to ignore the Mafia and to suppress information about it. Hoover actually claimed on numerous occasions that the Mafia did not exist. Agents who received information about the mob simply filed it away, without once using the word "Mafia". Overeager agents, who actually attempted to get the goods on the mob, were transferred to hardship posts in the middle of nowhere.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers conducting a wiretap on a Canadian mob figure's conversation with Meyer Lansky listened to Lansky reading from an internal FBI report which had been written only the day before, indicating a very high level connection inside the FBI.

There was never any serious attempt to indict Lansky until 1970 and then the IRS went after him for income tax evasion. After a lifetime of crime, Lansky died peacefully, wealthy and unprosecuted in 1983.

1935-42: UNITED STATES/GERMANY. Like a good Nazi shyster, John Foster Dulles sets up a convoluted maze of companies to hide the true, ultimate German ownership of the American Bosch Company. Bosch is the world's leading manufacturer of Diesel injection pumps and fuel injectors, vital elements in military vehicles, tanks, boats and submarines. American Bosch happily provides intelligence to the Nazis on U.S. war production.

To further hide the ownership of American Bosch, Dulles creates another layer of corporate deception which appears to transfer the ownership of Bosch to Swedish interests via a Delaware corporation, Providentia, of which Dulles himself is the sole voting trustee.

In July 1941, American Bosch refuses to provide the U.S. government with Diesel injectors for the U.S. military. In May 1942, American Bosch is confiscated under the Alien Property Custodian Act by which time the great patriot Dulles has succeeded in delaying the widespread manufacturing of Diesel engines in the U.S. for five years during the critical period when America was trying to rebuild its military strength.

1935-1936: ETHIOPIA. Fascist Italy under Benito Mussolini invades Ethiopia. Ethiopia appeals to the League of Nations for help and an embargo is placed on Italy. U.S. oil companies, and others, continue to supply Mussolini in defiance of the embargo. In all, the Italian fascists kill some 16,000 Ethiopians. After the Fascists occupy Ethiopia, Mussolini installs the Italian king, Victor Emmanuel III as emperor.

Always ready to support Fascism, not to mention racism, Time Magazine writes:
The attitude of Italians toward conquered Ethiopia is Christian in its readiness to collaborate with and convert the heathen and Roman in its drastic finality. The Pax Romana over Ethiopia has always been envisioned by the Dictator as something to be attained and consolidated in a matter of some twenty five years, if indeed Ethiopian savages can be brought to civilized citizenship so soon.
1936: GERMANY. Black American athlete Jesse Owens wins four gold medals at the Berlin Olympic games attended by Adolf Hitler. Owens' incredible performance is often a source of smugness for many modern day Americans who, not knowing who armed, financed and largely motivated Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, regard Owens' performance as some sort of moral victory by America over the forces of evil. Given that, in the United States, Owens was required to travel in the back of the bus, could not enter many restaurants, clubs and washrooms, would not be admitted to many hospitals and was subject to lynching, smugness seems a bit out of place.

Watching Owens from Adolf Hitler's private box at the Berlin Olympics, at the personal invitation of Nazi chieftains Rudolf Hess and Hermann Goering, is none other than paid advisor to Benito Mussolini, John J. McCloy whose contributions to the U.S. war effort will include running the concentration camps into which Americans of Japanese descent will soon be sent, ensuring the non-bombing of American and German-owned armaments factories in Nazi Germany and, when the war is over, ensuring that the worst Nazi war criminals escape punishment.

1936-39: SPAIN. When fascists under Francisco Franco, strongly supported by the Roman Catholic Church, the Spanish ruling class and the military, attempt to overthrow the democratically-elected government of Spain, Hitler and Mussolini immediately send planes, arms and men to help. That great lover of Christ, Pope Pius XI, gives his blessing to "those who have assumed the difficult and dangerous task of defending and restoring the rights and honor of Church and religion."

The U.S. government imposes an arms embargo on both sides but, since Franco is already being fully armed by Hitler and Mussolini, and assisted by the Luftwaffe's bombers and fighters, the embargo has the effect of bringing about the defeat of the elected Spanish government and the victory of the fascists. Strangely enough, the U.S. embargo doesn't prevent the Texas Oil Company (Texaco), under the firm guiding hand of registered Nazi spy and fuel supplier Torkild Rieber, supplying the Spanish Fascists with more than six million tons of oil with which to fuel its overthrow of the Spanish government. Inevitably, the Rockefellers' Standard oil also provides oil to the Fascists.

Of course, the U.S. mass media does its bit to ensure the victory of Fascism in Spain. Henry Luce's Time magazine refers to the elected government of Spain as "reds" and the fascists seeking to overthrow that government as "whites". Perhaps it is no coincidence that it will later be found that Josef Goebbels, Nazi minister of propaganda, had ordered the Nazi press to use those exact terms.

After his installation as dictator of Spain, a grateful Generalissimo Francisco Franco allows the United States to construct a string of military and naval bases in Spain which remain to the present day.

It all results in the installation of a dictatorship under Franco which will, with U.S. support, arms and approval, cruelly oppress the Spanish people for four decades, operate massive slave labor camps in which tens of thousands will die and will track down and carry out the mass murder of 200,000 political opponents with the invaluable assistance of International Business Machines (IBM), Nazism and Fascism's favorite Final Solutions Provider.

1936-42: GERMANY. The Texas Oil Company (Texaco) under Torkild Rieber and the Rockefellers' Standard Oil (later Esso/Exxon, now Exxon-Mobil) and independent Crusader (Davis) Oil supply crude and refined oil to Nazi Germany to fuel its bombing of Spain, the conquest of Europe, the Luftwaffe’s fighters during the Battle of Britain, the U-boats blockading Britain, the Luftwaffe’s bombing of Britain and the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union.

Crusader Oil builds and operates a major refinery in Hamburg called Eurotank with financing courtesy of the First National Bank of Boston. Crusader’s owner, William Rhodes Davis, becomes a registered agent of the German spy agency, the Abwehr, and passes American defense secrets to the Nazis. Prior to the declaration of war on the U.S. by Hitler, Davis receives large sums of money from the Nazis for propaganda and political campaigns to keep the U.S. out of the war.

Ultimately, Davis becomes involved in Nazi plans to establish fuel depots in remote Caribbean islands for U-boats attacking targets on the U.S. east coast. His pro-Nazi activities come to an end when he dies “suddenly”. At the request of British Intelligence, Davis’s demise isn't investigated too closely.

Texaco head Torkild Rieber is so utterly ruthless that he scares even the Nazis, who call him Leichengaenger, “the man who walks over corpses of his own making”. In addition to supplying the Nazis with fuel, Rieber uses Texaco’s world-wide organization to spy for them.

1936-45: UNITED STATES. The Nazi Schroeder Bank in New York merges with the Rockefeller interests to form Schroeder, Rockefeller & Company, Inc. Carlton P. Fuller of Schroeder Banking Corporation is made president and Avery Rockefeller, nephew of John D. Rockefeller, owns 42% and is made vice president. Baron Bruno von Schroeder and his cousin, Kurt von Schroeder of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the Gestapo, own 47 percent. Nazi shyster Allen Dulles serves on the board of the Schroeder Bank. Nazi shyster John Foster Dulles is the bank's legal counsel. The German parent bank acts as the financial arm of the Nazi Party and will, in the next few years, siphon large sums of money from the U.S. to Nazi Germany.

1936: UNITED STATES. Prescott Bush, grandfather of George "I'm A Lyin' Guy" Bush, hires Nazi shyster and financier Allen Dulles to create a massive legal smokescreen behind which to conceal his dealings on behalf of the Thyssen steel interests, major backers and financiers of Adolf Hitler.

1936: GERMANY. Harry Laughlin, Director of the Harriman/Rockefeller master race project otherwise known as the Eugenics Record Office in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island New York, is granted an honorary doctorate by Heidelberg University in recognition of his contribution to the "science" of Nazi eugenics.

1936: NICARAGUA. U.S. puppet dictator Anastasio Somoza names himself president of Nicaragua. After decades of repeated U.S. invasions, bombings and occupations of Nicaragua, U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull explores the outer reaches of hypocrisy when he says that, "To block his ascent would be to intervene in the internal affairs of Nicaragua." And the Lord God knows, that the United States of America would never do such a thing, would it? The mass murderering Somoza even gets to go for a stroll with Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

1936-ongoing: UNITED STATES. The FBI launches a major program of spying on American citizens who are involved in the trade union movement or are otherwise considered to be "radical" by FBI Director J. Edna Hoover. Particularly targeted by Hoover are workers in the steel, coal and garment industries and educational institutions. In 1937, J. Edna's web is expanded to include "liberal" citizens of these here United States and dangerous "liberal" organizations including such obvious commie plots as a day care center in the Bronx.

1936-1972: UNITED STATES. An American physician, Walter Freeman, begins a bloody campaign of assault and mutilation which would make Joseph Mengele blanch. During a period of over three decades, Freeman will damage or destroy the brains of about three thousand Americans by plunging surgical instruments through their skulls or eye sockets into their brains in order to "dull errant feelings", thereby supposedly curing psychological or behavioral problems. The psychiatric industry of the day favors lobotomy for the treatment of "personality problems", depression, headaches and misbehavior in children.

One of Freeman's first victims will be Rosemary Kennedy, daughter of bootlegger, stock market swindler and Jew hater Joseph Kennedy, whose behavior is an embarrasment to Kennedy. Rosemary's brain will be largely destroyed by Freeman and she will spend the remaining sixty years of her life institutionalized and hopelessly handicapped.

Seeking to speed up the procedure, Freeman invents the "ice pick" or transorbital lobotomy, in which he literally hammers kitchen ice picks through the back of each eye socket into the brain and wiggles them around, destroying the connections to and from the prefrontal cortex. Freeman, who is not a surgeon, carries out the procedure anywhere, in ten minutes, under local anesthetic or, sometimes, with the victim rendered unconcious by electroshock.

His goal is to popularize the procedure and have it carried out routinely in locations which have neither surgical nor anesthetic facilities. Freeman tours the country in what he blithely calls his "lobotomobile" demonstrating the procedure to the staffs of state hospitals. Frequently, he shows off by icepicking both of a patient's eye sockets at one time, one with each hand. Newspapers of the day describe Freeman's icepick lobotomies as "easier than curing a toothache."

Freeman's assault on Americans is only one part of a nightmarish campaign by the psychiatric industry which will result in some forty thousand Americans having their brains damaged or destroyed by lobotomy. In 1966, twelve year old Howard Dully becomes one of Freeman's youngest victims. Freeman sticks his latest replacements for twin icepicks, "orbitoclasts" through Dully's eye sockets and into his brain and wiggles them around for a while because the boy's stepmother describes Howard as "defiant". Dully will survive the nightmare and go on to write a book about his mutilation at Freeman's hands.

Freeman operates unchecked by the American medical profession, or the media, until 1967 when one of his victims dies of a brain hemorrhage and his license to practice medicine is revoked. Freeman will continue to tour the country in his "lobotomobile" until his death in 1972
