A review of two books

1. Preliminary remark
When in August 1998 Adelaide Institute held its first international revisionist conference – and its only one to date – there was much celebration all round because almost anyone who was active on the world stage of revisionism, in particular Jewish Holocaust revisionism, participated in person by travelling to Adelaide, by live telephone call, or by sending a video presentation. There were two individuals, who initially stated they would participate but then pulled out literally at the last minute: David Irving by not answering the phone and Joel Hayward by claiming illness. Interestingly, subsequently both Hayward and Irving recanted their views on the existence of homicidal gassings during World War Two: Hayward in 2000 when he claimed, without ever offering details on what he based his change of mind, i.e. that he “stuffed up” in his MA thesis where he claimed there was no evidence for the existence of homicidal gassings at Auschwitz; and Irving in 2006 when he was imprisoned in Vienna and following his defence counsel’s advice, recanted much of his evidence given at the Zündel 1988 Toronto trial in the hope of getting out of jail soon after, something the judges did not look favourably upon, likening Irving to a prostitute who has not seen the error of her ways. Irving’s Austrian imprisonment lasted from 11 November 2005 to 21 December 2006.
I personally regarded the Adelaide Institute Revisionist Symposium as a success story because, among other things, we managed to bring together the two major factions of Revisionists that emerged in 1993 when Willis Carto faced a coup and lost control of his Institute for Historical Review–IHR. Andrew Gray represented Carto and The Barnes Review by travelling to Adelaide in person, and Mark Weber sent a video address on behalf of the IHR.
When the planned April 2004 Sacramento Revisionist Conference had its main venue cancelled, and the organiser had a few days earlier cancelled the alternate venue, Mark Weber and some others wished to claim the remnants of the conference as an IHR conference, instead of a neutral name, such as the Ernst Zündel Revisionist Conference, so that Carto and Weber loyalists could both attend. The Carto group refused to attend the IHR-bannered conference.
All that changed when in August 2006 The Barnes Review held its most successful conference ever because most former Weber/IHR loyalists attended, thus in effect sealing the rift and confirming that Willis Carto’s vision stood, again, in-tact.
Weber/IHR was not represented at the December 2006 International Teheran Holocaust Conference but Carto/The Barnes Review was represented by Michael Collins Piper who, as far as I am concerned, has taken on the daunting mantle of Andrew Gray.
Willis Carto thus stands supreme amongst Revisionists because he successfully fought off the enemy from within his own ranks thereby ensuring that his political vision remained whole, and that the battle for truth and justice has become that proverbial never-ending story. It is thus fitting that George Michael, assistant professor of political science, University of Virginia, has written a much-needed detailed biography of 82-year-old Willis Carto who more than anyone in the USA has continued the good fight with a formidable team of loyal professionals.
The hard-cover 342-page book has 19 chapters: Introduction – The Far Right before Carto – Early Years, Right – Uniting the Right – The Birth of Liberty Lobby – Francis Parker Yockey and Imperium – The Turbulent Decade – Youth for Wallace – The Spotlight – Opposition – The Institute for Historical Review – The Populist World View – The Populist Party – The Rise and Decline of the Christian Patriot/Militia Movement – Internecine Battles: The Struggle with the IHR – The Barnes Review – Death and Rebirth? The End of the Spotlight and the Emergence of American Free Press – Conclusion: Willis Carto and the Postwar American Far Right.
There are six pages of black and white photos detailing aspects of Carto’s life, 67 pages of detailed footnotes, over 356 references are listed in the bibliography, and there is a comprehensive index. I do not recall coming across any serious spelling errors and only mention that the name Elisabeth is written once with an ‘s’ and the second mention of the same person with a ‘z’, the former being the German spelling of that name.
I recall that sometime during the early 1990s John Bennett of the Australian Civil Liberties Union, remarked to me that the Carto-IHR split was occasioned by Carto’s overt political and racist attitude, something that the IHR opposed because it wished to retain a scholarly approach. Only this year, in 2008, it was Horst Mahler who reminded me that the weakness of the Revisionist position is its non-political stance, i.e. particularly Jewish Holocaust Revisionism will remain impotent if it does not embrace some political program.
From Iranian students I learned that in Iran all is religion and all is politics. This was a response I encountered when I discussed the four Kantian questions and their academic disciplines: What can I believe? – Religion; what can I know? – Theory of knowledge/science; what can I do? – Ethics/Moral Philosophy; what is man – Anthropology?
Willis Carto has always seen the larger picture of what is needed to effect change so as to promote societal development. From his early beginnings, especially after returning from World War Two service, Carto did not like the way America was heading and what the USA was doing overseas, in particular in the Middle East. Although first blaming Standard Oil’s Rockefeller for the grief caused to the Middle East peoples, he later rightly focused the criticism on Jewish activities against Palestinians. American foreign policy became skewered towards the Zionist goals, much to the distress of the American taxpayers who were funding US foreign policy in the Middle East.
When in 1979 Carto founded the IHR it was inevitable that the ‘Holocaust’ and Zionist machinations became the focal point of his world-view as expressed in the Journal of Historical Review.
Michael George treats in detail how in 1993 the IHR was stolen at gun-point from Carto’s business empire, and how under Mark Weber it has in effect stopped functioning, though the Internet website still offers Revisionist material – but rather than offering pioneering material, most of what is on offer is what Carto built up over the year. George mentions Carto’s impressive publishing record.
Also, George’s detailed coverage of the various court cases show how welcomed this split must have been for the arch-enemy, in particular the Jewish Defence League-JDL, and the Anti-Defamation League-ADL. It is therefore no comfort for those who to this day retain control of the IHR when in defence of their actions of 1993 they refer to various court cases and judgments that favoured the IHR. Jews and others opposed to Carto’s world view could only stand back and watch with glee as once-trusted employees turned on their employer all because a once in a lifetime multi-million dollar bequest enabled them to dream of getting something for nothing.
And, again, George in much detail shows how Willis Carto bounces back from the stabs-in-the back that he has had to endure throughout his life, something that unfortunately is characteristic of much political life, comes with the territory, so to speak.
The question arises where does a man like Willis Carto derive the strength to withstand such challenges? The obvious answer is that his personal world view is sound and correct, otherwise it would not be possible to endure such stresses without becoming addicted to some substance, and Carto is not addicted to anything.
However, there is someone in his life that has stood by him for 48 years, something that speaks for itself – his wife, Elisabeth, and those who have met Elisabeth know that she fulfils what is summed up in the somewhat hackneyed phrase: behind every great man there is a woman. In this case it is a German woman who went through the horrors that was World War Two, and who by going to the USA escaped the re-education program that was imposed on the Germans as the victors’ steam-roller flattened them – and subdues them to this day with the Holocaust-Shoah guilt-trip lies.
And for more details on Willis Carto’s most productive life please read the book because it fills in many gaps and dispels some ugly gossip with factual material not available anywhere else. Michael George has done an excellent job in giving us a detailed portrait of Willis Carto, a concerned man of vision – I salute both.

World Jewry’s attempt to salvage the Holocaust-Shoah narrative from political irrelevance/extinction in Southern Africa and elsewhere in the world
Some readers on their world travels during the South African Apartheid era may have witnessed on commercial flights within the USA a sudden vacating of the front row seats because South African diplomats made an unscheduled boarding, carrying diplomatic pouches filled with all sorts of technical and electronic goodies to Washington.
Apartheid South Africa was one of the staunchest allies of the pariah state Israel, something the Afrikaans’s-speaking South Africans could not understand. It did not make sense because one of South Africa’s wealthiest tycoons, Jewish Harry Oppenheim, did all he could to support the overthrow of the Apartheid system of government by Marxist-inspired movements within and without South Africa. Oppenheimer would welcome German students on exchange in South Africa and freely imbue them with his thoughts on what should happen in South Africa. Such German students were receptive to his Israel-sympathy line because he was not shy in advocating and fuelling their own sense of guilt about what their fathers had allegedly done to Jews in Germany during World War Two.
Also, since the early 1960s Jews living in South Africa were already slowly leaving the country for Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA and, of course, Europe – but rarely to the Promised Land of Israel.
World Jewry was thus sending a deceptive message: It abhorred apartheid South Africa’s political system because freedom and democracy could not flourish there but still exploited its resources.
The political battle cry was one-man-one-vote so that the minority government of white South Africa would soon disappear – four million against 20 million! The continued development of independent homeland nations for the various different tribal groups – Transkei, Ciskei, Venda, Bobhuthatswana, Kwa-Zulu, Lebowa, for example, bothered the advocates of freedom and democracy and one-man-one-vote. The Afrikaans’ hope had been to develop these homelands into quite independent political entities as had the two British colonial entities of Basutoland/Lesotho and Swaziland developed into independent countries within South Africa.
But it was not to be because such autonomous regions would cause the multinationals too much bureaucratic tape when it came to exploiting Southern Africa’s rich mineral deposits. Instead, Apartheid South Africa was dismantled and national autonomy gave way to international finance and the population was inflicted with the guilt-trip of AIDS.
Brief AIDS detour
While on the AIDS topic, a brief excursion is in order here. It must be remembered that if Australia was to adopt the same AIDS testing kits used in Africa, then we would also have an AIDS epidemic, and vice versa, if Australia’s AIDS testing kits were used in Africa, then there would not be an AIDS epidemic. AIDS sceptics are delighted with the fact that AIDS believers are now acknowledging that antibiotics used to combat old illnesses, e.g. T.B., have become ineffective through over-use, and so what plagued Africa before the advent of antibiotics is re-emerging with a vengeance.
The acronym AIDS–acquired immuno-deficiency syndrome – serves to consolidate over 20 common illnesses and, contentiously, the HIV–Human immuno-deficiency virus – is blamed for causing all of them, hence the common denominator AIDS, and i.e. the virus causes the syndrome!
The AIDS controversy is similar in structure to the Holocaust-Shoah belief because the concept is used to simplify some complex human forms of behaviour that gave rise to, among other things, World War Two.
And, contrary to what a scientific enquiry is all about, in both AIDS and Holocaust-Shoah enquiry the basic premises/hypotheses have become dogmas.
Anyone engaged in AIDS and Holocaust-Shoah research claims with absolute certainty that HIV and the homicidal gas chambers existed – and no dissent is tolerated, both being derogatorily labelled: Holocaust-Shoah denier and AIDS denier.
This is contrary to what the scientific method is all about – hence legal protection ensures that the premises on which their arguments rest are not questioned.
I think that soon we may have to add to that the new and latest denier label: 9:11 denier!
Southern Africa’s tragedy
We need only recall the Nigerian-Biafra tragedy of he 1960s where oil-rich Christian Biafra attempted to retain its tribal integrity by declaring its independence, rather than remain just one of the 21-odd federal tribal states that made up Nigeria. But for the multi-nationals it is much easier to deal with a central government than 21 independent countries.
While we’re at it: the Angolan conflict likewise followed the same pattern. While the population thought it was a battle between Communism and Capitalism-freedom and democracy, the world’s newest and largest oil reserves located just off the Angolan coast were captured by the multinationals who could not be bothered to reflect on the tragic and unnecessary distractions played out in the raging Angolan civil war by the multi-nationals.
The descendants of Afrikaans-speaking Boors had nowhere to go but back to one of their spiritual roots: The Old Testament. And so they dreamt and prayed and hoped that deliverance from such international financial and political oppression would come one day soon, which didn’t happen because their adherence to their spiritual roots had been the prime cause of their political demise – it carried its own seed of destruction. Hoping, praying and wishing for things to happen just doesn’t make things happen!
The apartheid-created states were multiracial and so whites could give free expression to their primordial impulses and cross the ‘racial/colour line’, thereby proving that the sexual impulse overrides the religious impulse. I am tempted to follow this thought-pattern and speculate what happens to an individual when a strong belief system clashes with a strong physical/biological imperative – the development of a neurosis of hatred?
This willing betrayal of their belief system became more apparent as the new South Africa once again but ever so slowly became the tumbling ground of international finance where multiculturalism and freedom and democracy dislocated communities and destroyed their heritage by re-marketing tribal-national aspirations as Disney-world look-alikes.
World Jewry, riding with and on the back of international finance, is once again sucking the life-blood out of South Africa, and vindictive racists are celebrating the gradual fragmentation of a once stable political entity, such as Zimbabwe, preaching to the world that ‘blacks’ are inferior to ‘whites’. Zimbabwe’s breakdown is not to be reduced to one of ‘Black’ incompetence as many would have us believe, but is a much more complex situation than race alone.
Also, a simplistic view of predatory capitalism does not explain why South Africa, and Zimbabwe among others, is in free-fall decline; perhaps the former country will retain its forced national cohesion until 2010 when it is set to host the World Football Cup.
Into this vacuum of a quest for a nationalist ethos for both ‘black’ and ‘white’ South Africans organized world Jewry is injecting the so-called Jewish Holocaust-Shoah narrative. It is an attempt to safeguard exclusive Jewish interests at the expense of anything that can be linked, for example, to wholesome Afrikaans-German influences and values.
This is because the Holocaust-Shoah narrative is nothing but an expression of hatred for anything German – it is an expression of blind hatred of Germans and of things German. Hence, six decades after war’s end countless Jews continue to sell themselves as victims of German ‘extermination plans’ and they ruthlessly use the Holocaust-Shoah narrative to achieve this. There is even a movement to counsel children of Holocaust-Shoah survivors who show signs of mental instability.
Fortunately, anyone who has done some research into this historical topic will soon learn that the Holocaust-Shoah has no reality in space and time but only in memory. That is why it is foolish to label Holocaust-Shoah believers as liars, though the temptation is there to use this dialectic on them: either they are ignorant of the facts, or they are liars.
South Africa’s Muslim communities already know this because South Africa’s Jewish community worked hard to silence Cape Town’s community radio station, Radio 768, which broadcast a program containing Holocaust-Shoah material that declared it to be a lie.
It is thus not surprising that one of the latest books to appear on the market dealing with this very task of furthering Jewish interests and of propagating German hatred has been written by two Jewish South Africans and is printed and published in South Africa.
Harold Serebro with Jacques Sellschop:
Beyond Redemption? The Nazi Colonel Who Saved Jews And Plundered Their Wealth
Westmoreland and Trent Publishers, Johannesburg, South Africa. 2007.
ISBN: Softcover: 979-0-6203-4661-0; Hardcover: 979-0-6203-7942-7.
On the inside title page the second sentence is slightly varied to:
HOW S.S. COLONEL KURT BECHER SAVED THOUSANDS OF JEWS AND PLUNDERED THEIR WEALTH
The cover shows the now famous Auschwitz-Birkenau entrance featuring the railway line that allegedly transported Jews there to be either ‘gassed immediately’ or ‘worked to death’. In the lower left corner is a menorah and opposite that a swastika-Hakenkreuz.
The book contains 742 pages and divides into a Prologue, 28 chapters, Acknowledgements, lists 309 footnotes that also double up as a bibliography simply headed: KURT BECHER REFERENCES. Then there are Annexures A to F, and a Postscript, pp. 705-21 headed: ADDITIONAL PERSONAL DETAILS AND EXPLANATIONS OF NAZI TERMINOLOGY AND METHODOLOGY TO ACHIEVE THEIR AIM OF MASS-MURDER.
This is followed by a 20-page Index, which is not listed in the CONTENTS at the beginning of the book. The fact that it is not listed indicates either haste in getting the book printed or careless editing, something I am quite familiar with on a personal level.
However, there are also other things that do not quite ring true in this book. Numerous spelling errors speak for themselves, The final sentence of the book contains what appears to me to be three hastily inserted footnotes suggesting either a detailed knowledge of the subject matter or a short-circuiting of scholarship by attempting to impress with a final authoritative voice:
“Perhaps Becher’s ghost has highlighted a dark stain which disfigures humanity and it emphasizes the vulnerability of the human psyche to evil forces307 and to distortions of the truth. 308, 309.”
Footnote 307 refers to: Morgenthau, H., “The Ethics of Politics and the Ethics of Evil,” Ethics, 56. 1945. (See also Vrba, R., “I cannot Forgive”, and Vrba, R., “Escape from Auschwitz”.) No. 308 refers to Lipstadt, D., “Denying the Holocaust. The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory”. (London 1993.), and 309: Shermer, M., Grobman, A., Denying History – Who Says the Holocaust Never Happened And Why Do They Say It? (California 2002).
Note the final reference title does not use quotation marks, but that is a minor detail.
Of interest is Lipstadt’s book because, as John Bennett pointed out when the book appeared, the errors made by Lipstadt when she writes about the Australian scene are almost too numerous to count. Bennett did inform Lipstadt of these errors, but of course she did not respond to his letter.
But I am jumping ahead of my set task of reviewing the book, though let me say now that not one classic Revisionist text, such as Willis Carto’s published Did Six Million Really Die?, Arthur Butz’s The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, or Germar Rudolf’s Lectures on the Holocaust are mentioned in the reference section. A reliance on Lipstadt’s, Morgenthau’s, Shermer’s/Grobman’s or Vrba’s moral and intellectual integrity is fatally misplaced, and thus categorises the book, as the Germans would say: Ein Machwerk – a piece of propaganda of little value to anyone who seeks to understand what happened during World War Two in the period that is called the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah. It floods the reader with details – one particular heaped on to another and as Robert Faurisson would say making this all just busy work.
However the overarching concept holding all this together is the belief that homicidal gas chambers were used to implement the systematic extermination of European Jewry
The problem I have had with this book is that it rests on a false premise: that Germans had a political program that set out systematically to exterminate European Jewry in homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz, among other places.
Remember, it was at the 1988 Toronto Zündel trial where Professor Raul Hilberg admitted that the two written Hitler Orders that began the extermination process as mentioned in his book, The Destruction of European Jews, did not exist.
However, he did not draw any consequences to his argument of having made such a statement, and continued to maintain his extermination argument, i.e. that all Germans involved in the extermination process knew what to do – “an incredible meeting of minds”.
Anyone familiar with the workings of a bureaucracy knows that nothing major is done without a written command/order, and this especially applies to the gassing allegations that are alleged to have occurred during war-time where use of resources are tightly controlled.
A flawed/false premise
From this flows a theorizing that does not permit any German to have good intentions towards things Jewish. This dialectic mindset drives the book’s content and thus makes it quite unbalanced. On the one hand there is a man called Kurt Becher who is celebrated for ‘saving’ Jewish lives, but on the other hand his motives for doing so were not pure, as was, it is claimed, Oskar Schindler’s motives in saving his Jewish workforce when he re-located them from Poland to Czechoslovakia, using the trucks supplied by Heinrich Brockschmidt, something that is not mentioned by the authors.
It is asserted that Becher exploited the Jews whom he saved from certain death and profited from the wealth they left behind. At page 330 there is an explanatory paragraph headed:
BECHER’S DIRECT SCORECARD IN FACILITATING THE SURVIVAL OF POTENTIAL HOLOCAUST VICTIMS.
With reference to Professor Yehuda Bauer it states:
“We firmly believe that there is a major difference between saving a person’s life with the pure motivation of preserving life and the actions taken which facilitates the survival of a potential Holocaust victim, the motivation for which was the mere expediency of finalizing a deal or fulfilling an aim. In the first instance, courage, humanity and concern prompts the action. In the second instance the saving of the potential victim does not have primary importance, as the “saviour” has an ulterior motive. …Oskar Schindler, a Sudeten German industrialist, in contrast to Kurt Becher, used his factory as a “benign concentration camp,” to save 1200 Jewish inmates. He protected and fed the Jews who worked for him. They were never beaten. He bribed Nazi officials not to murder them. He even went on a desperate mission to Auschwitz, where he managed to secure the release of his female workers who had been deported there – virtually snatching them from the jaws of death. He was on a personal mission to save Jews. He has been honoured by Yad Vashem – The Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem. His pure motivation was to save lives without any hope of material gain. Although Becher allegedly saved more Jews than Schindler he has no been awarded this honour by Yad Vashem.”
Like with most of the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah propaganda, the processes of war are oversimplified and skewed towards Jews, as if World War Two was just about Adolf Hitler hating the Jews so much that he spent all his energy on planning and then physically exterminating them. He had more important things to do than work for the Jews and establish a Judeo-centric world view for the Germans!
Even a rudimentary logistical study of an alleged extermination process would show up horrendous physical problems, which soon reveal the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah narrative has no reality on space and time, only in memory.
For example, the three-step logistics problem of: undress-gas-burn as at Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, or the five-step logistics problem as applicable to Treblinka concentration camp: undress-gas-bury-exhume-burn. Unfortunately this book also reduces war-time complexities to a simple formula: Some Germans saved Jews from extinction in homicidal gas chambers, but only because they personally profited from such a venture.
The Gassing Claim
Of interest to me is the murder weapon and a glance at the Index finds entries for Zyklon B gas – but no reference to Zionism, nor to the Ha’avara Agreement.
At pages 215-17 we have the horrendous twisted mindset that is the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah revealed in the following:
In June 1944 when the Hungarian transports arrived, Hoessler was on duty and he worked almost continuously. When the sealed wagon-trucks stopped at Auschwitz, the deportees saw an orchestra consisting of girls in white blouses and dark skirts “all pretty and young who played gay tunes when the trains arrived”. The Nazis enjoyed the deception of this macabre scene. Their unsuspecting victims listened to the sounds of the Merry Widow” and the Barcarolle from “The Tales of Hoffman” … before they were cruelly and unwittingly sent to their deaths.
12 000 people started arriving daily from Hungary, at the height of the deportations demanded by Becher and organized by Eichmann. The deportees went straight to the gas-chambers without even being counted or registered.
When Hoessler was told by Colonel Backhouse, 142 “You knew, of course, that it was a very wrong thing to gas these women and children and yet you were prepared day after day to take charge of these selection parades,” he replied, “ I did not do them every day … but millions were selected”. Hoessler stated that “everyone in the camp knew about the gas-chambers in Auschwitz”.
Mrs Rosina Kramer144 – wife of Josef Kramer – concurred. When Major Winwood asked her, “You knew about the gas chambers then?”
Her reply was “Everybody in Auschwitz knew about them”.
Dr Ada Bimka, a prisoner inmate at Auschwitz, saw an entire transport of Hungarian Jews consigned to the gas-chamber on the 27th July 1944, as it was suspected by the Nazis that these deportees had scarlet fever. In October 1944, all 359 persons she was trying to comfort and treat in her section were gassed. The Nazi doctors146 constantly humiliated Dr Bimka, slapping her face and forcing her to observe their callous disregard for human life. Their Hippocratic Oath disappeared into the smoke of the Auschwitz crematorium.139 It was replaced by overt experimentation on living human beings who were exposed to experimental surgery for indiced gas gangrene, surgery without anesthesia, forced sterilisation with radio-therapeutic techniques and both chloroform and phenol injections directly administered into the heart. Dr Bimka testified to the environment of starvation, malnutrition and cruelty, characterized by indiscriminate shooting, beating and the hanging of inmates.
When she originally arrived at Auschwitz in August 1943, with 5000 other Jews, including her close relatives, she observed how the Nazis sent 4500 of them straight to the gas chambers and crematoria. On one occasion, she was sent to recover hospital blankets which had formerly been used by those about to be gassed and she saw one of the empty gas-chambers which had rows of spray-fittings all over the ceiling but no drain.
The Jews selected for gassing arrived at the gas chambers in long columns, where they were forced to undress. After they entered the chamber, the door was bolted. The contents of tins labelled Zyklon-B were thrown into the chamber from the roof. According to Perry Broad, an officer in the Auschwitz Political Department, “the screaming of the victims quickly ceased, to be followed by complete silence”. 148
Yehuda Bakon, an artist, also observed the interior of the gas-chamber when he was an inmate at Auschwitz, where he worked at burning papers near the crematoria. His illustrations depict the gas-chambers, including the dummy shower-heads and the fine wire-mesh column from where Zyklon-B was inserted from above into the gas-chambers below, which were hermetically sealed by gas-tight doors.
Franz Hoessler continues, “Whilst I was there, selection of prisoners who were to go to the gas chambers was done by Dr Klein, Dr Mengele and the other doctors. I attended these parades, but my job was merely to keep order. Often women were paraded naked in front of the doctors and the persons selected by a doctor were sent to the gas-chambers. It was not nice to be a Nazi, now was it a privilege”.”
And so it goes on and on – initially the story starts with an element of factual truth, for example prisoners getting off the train to be categorized – called “Selektion”! Any movement of people follows such procedures.
Then the story is exaggerated by claiming Germans were inhumane to prisoners, though anyone familiar with Guantanamo knows that excesses occur during wartime. And finally the story is twisted and outright fabrications enter its narrative, such as the gassing story, which “Everybody in Auschwitz knew about them”.
Should this have been “it”, and please, name names. Carlo Mattogno’s book on how the gassing story developed reveals who “everybody” actually was!
Setting a new dialectic
The mechanism of discrediting individuals follows a predictable pattern that is then set into legal concrete, and from there it is difficult to escape, especially if the mindset is out to kill those who refuse to believe in, for example, the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah story.
Just two examples of setting something into legal concrete are the Nürnberg War Crimes Tribunal findings and the more recent Larry Silberstein insurance payout for the loss of the two World Trade Centre towers as part of the 9:11 ‘terrorist attack’ on the USA. Both events set a new dialectic from which physical consequences flowed; in the former Germany’s ‘guilt’ for WWII, and in the latter the Arab-Islamic world is branded as a terrorist world/religion. Historians then build their analysis of events on such set premises.
I am reminded of what Jews these past sixty years have been doing to the Palestinian people and how that genocide one day may be written up by Jews as an example of Jews suffering Palestinian persecution! There are already numerous Jews who oppose the Jewish state policy of Palestinian genocide, but it is unhelpful to differentiate and bring in the Zionist concept because the root cause is the mindset as defined and determined by Talmud.
An interesting map at page 281 details the journey undertaken by two Kasztner trains taking Hungarian refugees from Bergen-Belsen to Switzerland. On this map two symbols appear; one a swastika in a circle labelled ‘= Nazi Concentration Camp’, and the other a death-head labelled ‘= Nazi Death Camp’. The former appears next to the names Neuengamme and Bergen-Belsen, and the latter, as one would expect but does not appear next to Auschwitz. Again, this error or oversight is typical of what one finds in this book.
For example, in the unnumbered ten pages picture section the caption beneath the fourth photo reads:
Hitler dressed in a tuxedo for the ceremonial occasion, is about to receive a foreign diplomat to accept his credentials. Note how the attendees stand on the periphery of the carpet.
The comment about protocol, how attendees are standing, seeks to belittle the ceremony as that of a tyrant at work, or worse. Such a comment is made to impress the ignorant and unsophisticated that are not familiar with such universal code of conduct.
Likewise the caption beneath the next photograph:
Hitler discussing Nazi-economic policies with a group of German industrialist. He was gaining their financial support and their votes. See William Sheridan Allen, The Nazi Seizure of Power – Revised edition New York; Thomas Childres, The Nazi Voter, Chapel Hill 1983.
What does a photograph prove if not captioned appropriately!
The final photograph’s caption reads:
Adolf Hitler with Albert Speer. Speer served Nazi-Germany as the Minister of Armaments and War production. When Speer was in the Nuremberg Prison yard with the other Nazi war criminals awaiting trial, there was a discussion about ‘Jewish Survivors in Hungary’.
Goering remarked callously: “So there are still some there? I thought we had knocked off all of them. Somebody slipped up again.” See Speer, Albert, “Inside the Third Reich” p512.) Unlike Becher, Speer admitted his guilt.
Again, the content suggests that Speer confirmed the gassings when all he did was feel sorry for the terrible loss of life, and that Germany’s role in this slaughter of millions of people is to be regretted. When I spoke with Albert Speer at his Heidelberg home in August 1976 he confirmed that he did not know about the alleged gassings. The above-quoted remark from Goering is also used to distort, to twist factual information. Goering merely jested at the allegations of mass murder when he learned that a transport of Jews was not eliminated. Such comments are hearsay and prove nothing.
Nowhere do the authors of this book make a recommendation that a forensic-physical investigation of the alleged murder weapon be made – but then again, that’s irrelevant because the authors are Holocaust-Shoah believers. Their belief has become an undisputed dogma that has gained legal protection in a number of western countries where freedom and democracy have become the slogans that drives them, where anything may be questioned and disputed – anything except the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah!
Anyone refusing to believe in it will be punished as were the dissenters Galileo, Bruno, et al, who refused to believe in the geocentric world view.
Social Protection of Holocaust-Shoah Witnesses
A number of Jews, who call themselves ‘Holocaust-Shoah survivors’, now living in Australia are mentioned for the purpose, it seems, of lending credibility to the contents of the book. Mr Alex Odze, a prisoner at Auschwitz, is featured in a photograph where the caption reads:
… Mr Odze was also tattoed with a half Star of David as he had blond hair and blue eyes and looked Germanic. He believes the triangle (or half Star) saved his life as he was allowed to do labour in the stables and as a result he was not sent to the gas chamber. … Mr Odze received the Randwick City Council’s Prestigious Australia Day – Community Service and Youth Award on 26 January 2006.
And further, Mr Herschel Gutmin O.A. … was a prisoner-inmate at Auschwitz where he was tattoed and given the number 24 628. He arrived in Australia after the Holocaust as a penniless refugee and became a highly successful businessman, who is widely respected as a philanthropist. He was awarded the Order of Australia in recognition of his services to the general community. Mr Gutmin funded the purchase of the Coogee Synagogue which he and his Committee recently renovated.
And so the authors go on and on. Kurt Becher, on the other hand, being a German and part of that military machine had no redeeming features because “He showed no remorse for his actions. He simply shoved the Holocaust aside and continued with his life, constantly upgrading his life-style by using his hidden wealth … Becher’s life illustrates the ambivalence of evil intent, which can hide behind an exterior of charm … Neither a sound education nor religious principles can obstruct this dysfunction, which is usually fuelled by both greed and ambition. The evils of the Nazi era, which included persecution, destruction and mass murder, were potent forces causing men to act against so-called civilized behaviour norms and against every design of the Creator.”
It makes me think again of what the Jews are doing to the Palestinians, or what the American political group that staged 9:11 has done to its own people. When a government turns upon its own people – and that is the essence of 9:11 – then an agenda is set that will cause continuous tragedy and only end when the cause has been cut out of the body politic.
When in 2006 the western world media, on behalf of its politicians, cried in unison against the Iranian president Dr Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for daring to hold a conference with the aim of reviewing the Holocaust-Shoah as an historical event, when the Jews in Israel continue to perpetrate a Palestinian genocide while clamouring for peace talks without Palestinians whom it has branded as terrorists, when the 9:11 tragedy is staged to conveniently set a defining dialedic for the 21st century where Muslim terrorists/ Islamic world is labelled as the perpetrators/ the enemy, then it is quite in order to ask the simple question: In whose interest is all this – cui bono?
Stay tuned for a possible partial answer to the above when I go to trial on 3 June 2008 and attempt to extradite myself from the ‘made in good faith’ FCA Consent Court Order that I claim the Jewish side has abused and thus the need for the orders to be set aside.
This book was well worth the $40.99 purchase price because it is evident from its contents that the Holocaust-Shoah believers have nothing new to offer and so need to rely on the re-hashing of old falsehoods and former war-time propaganda material that was designed to smear Germans and their World War Two allies.
The authors also rely on the usual two-pronged historical method so over used by Holocaust-Shoah historians: the written word/documents and hearsay-interviews with survivors. Importantly, only a few historians acknowledge the difficulty of writing a history when much critical material is still locked up in secret archives six decades after the war ended.
The authors also refuse to use the third prong of historical investigation, the application of a far more definitive historical method – scientific research. So many statements made by survivors prove that the reality content of such material is only real in the minds of the witnesses but has in fact no reality in space and time, i.e. in the physical world. The gassing story remains a figment of their imagination without physical proof, and this makes their Holocaust-Shoah story all the more real and perfect. The recent case of a non-Jewish woman pretending to be a Holocaust-Shoah survivor and writing her life’s story of escaping from the German war machine by living with wolves is a standard form of such delusional thinking about the Holocaust-Shoah.
Sadly, then, a reading of the book merely confirms what Holocaust-Shoah believers, such as Professor Deborah Lipstadt, have consistently claimed: There is no discussion about the Holocaust-Shoah because it is the most researched topic in history. I may well ask: Why then write this book?
Professor Raul Hilberg, a little before his death, stated that only twenty per cent of the Holocaust-Shoah has been researched. Revisionists know that Germar Rudolf in his Holocaust Handbook series of over 21 volumes has amassed a vast array of material that shames those Holocaust-Shoah believers who claim the job is done.
Revisionists cannot claim the job is done because there forever will be new information flowing into their minds that needs to be thought about, assessed, evaluated for truth-content.
And then there are the laws that currently imprison Revisionists such as Germar Rudolf, Ernst Zündel, Sylvia Stolz, Gerd Honsik and Wolfgang Fröhlich, to name but a few, who risked everything for the sake of finding out the truth about this terrible allegation levelled against the German people – that they were responsible for a unique event called the Holocaust-Shoah where six million Jews were systematically exterminated, mainly in homicidal gas chambers.
These Revisionists concluded that this allegation is a massive lie – and for that they have been imprisoned. So much for freedom and democracy in the western democratic world.

Slavery and the Jews
THE SECRET RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BLACKS AND JEWS
by The Historical Research Department, The Nation of Islam.
Latimer Associates, 334 pages, $24.95.
ALMOST as soon as it appeared, in 1991, The Secret Relationship generated a controversy that centered more on its intentions than its scholarship. The noise level was heightened in 1993 by the turmoil that swirled around Professor Tony Martin, of Wellesley College. A tenured professor in Wellesley's Department of Africana Studies, Martin assigned to one of his classes portions of the book, which singles out Jews for special prominence in the Atlantic slave trade and for having played a particularly prominent role in the enslavement of Africans in the Americas. He was accused of anti-Semitism, and wrote a brief book to refute the charges. The title of Martin's book, The Jewish Onslaught: Despatches From the Wellesley Battlefront, gave a clear preview of his opinions. It was a mixture of discussion, factual refutation, and angry recrimination. This last predominated, with paragraphs that opened using language like "To the Jews, and to their favourite Negroes who have insisted on attacking me I say . . ." His views on The Secret Relationship's use of historical materials amounted to a barrage of enthusiastic endorsements. Ironically, Martin's assertion that "Jews were very much in the mainstream of European society as far as the trade in African human beings was concerned" was very close to what many Jewish scholars had claimed some thirty years before.
Martin, in one of his endorsements, made a startling assertion concerning slave ownership by Jews: "Using the research of Jewish historians, the book suggests that based on the 1830 census, Jews actually had a higher per capita slave ownership than for the white population as a whole." The Secret Relationship does in fact approach making that suggestion, and since the claim would appear to be a pivotal one, it is worth examining.
In order to assess such a claim, one must resort to details. Martin's purported actuality is wrong on its face if applied to the "white population" of the United States "as a whole," because in 1830 only a handful of white northerners still owned slaves. Jews were concentrated in the North, and they constituted a very small minority there. Even if the statement is taken as applying only to the states in the American South that had not adopted gradual emancipation laws, it remains badly flawed. A careful and honest footnote in The Secret Relationship reveals that "Jewish scholars" had concluded that Jews in the South lived mostly in towns and cities. Neither this book nor Martin's explains the significance of this fact. In actuality, slave ownership was much more common in southern urban areas than in the southern countryside. The relatively high proportion of Jewish slaveholding was a function of the concentration of Jews in cities and towns, not of their descent or religion. It is also the case that urban slaveholders of whatever background owned fewer slaves on average than rural slaveholders, including those on large plantations. Thus the proportion of slaveholders has never been an accurate measure of the social or economic importance of slaveholding, unless it is assessed on a broadly regional or state-by-state basis. In this instance, as in so many others, the statistical data do not stand up and cry out their own true significance.
The Secret Relationship is interesting in many respects. It has an unnamed editor and provides no indication of personal authorship. The title page declares that it was "Prepared by The Historical Research Department [of] The Nation of Islam," but does not explain why this is "Volume One" or what may be offered in ensuing volumes. The book is ostensibly a scholarly work, replete with a short bibliography and a huge collection of footnotes. Its opening "Note on Sources" asserts that it "has been compiled primarily from Jewish historical literature."
A second title page of The Secret Relationship announces that "Blacks and Jews have recently begun to question their relationship and its strategic role in their individual development" and that the book "is intended to provide an historical perspective for intellectual debate of this crucial social matter." The word "individual" raises the question whether persons or groups are intended. Individual African-Americans and individual Jews as persons? Or two distinct individual groups?
As for the mechanics of scholarship, they present a central difficulty. The footnotes are extremely difficult to check in the form in which they are presented: although they follow the custom (in common with most of the humanities but not the social sciences) of providing a complete citation upon first mention and a shortened author-title-page version for ensuing ones, and are placed at the bottom of the page, they are numbered consecutively--all 1,275 of them--rather than starting afresh with each chapter. A reader encountering a brief reference to a presumably important article on Jewish slaveholding in the South (such as one on page 304, in footnote No. 1,238) can find a fuller citation--on page 91, in footnote No. 349--only after nearly an hour of thumbing through the book. Having gone this far, the reader must then consult the "Footnote Abbreviations" at the beginning of the book in order to discover a reference that might be usable in a library. The citation names a three-volume work edited by Abraham J. Karp. Upon consulting that work, which actually has five volumes, one learns that the article in question is by Bertram W. Korn. The same article by Korn is listed in The Secret Relationship's "Selected Bibliography," but in another set of volumes, with an incorrect date and no indication that it was reprinted elsewhere several times.
Footnotes matter because verifiability depends on them. In the Karp-Korn instance we are nearly home, though we do not yet know when the article was published--and, of course, the date matters greatly. We can determine it only by consulting actual copies of the article, which turns out to be "Jews and Negro Slavery in the Old South, 1789-1865," which originated as an address by the president of the American Jewish Historical Society and was first published in 1961.
The date, it turns out, falls within a period when Jewish scholarship about the history of Jews in the United States was moving away from predominantly filiopietistic studies of ancestry and achievement and toward a more sophisticated assessment of the role of Jews in American culture. Korn's article contains a great deal of specific information to which The Secret Relationship has been thoroughly faithful. Overall, though, the conclusions Korn drew from his data were very different: he made a strong and persuasive case that there were few Jews in the planting class in the South, that Jews had historically been forced into commercial enterprises, that in the Old South they were typically city dwellers, that a small number participated in the domestic slave trade, that they treated their slaves no better or worse than other slaveholders, and that the few Jews in the South without exception endorsed slavery. The thrust of Korn's article was that Jews were not much different from other white southerners in their views on race and slavery.
Dating such historical writing is critical, given the shifting state of historical scholarship over time. Many of the works cited in The Secret Relationship are so old that it would be generous to call them outdated. Of the first sixty-odd, nearly a third date from before 1950 and eight from the 1890s. In contrast, a recent pamphlet on the Atlantic slave trade that was published by the American Historical Association as an aid to scholars and teachers cites four sources that date from 1949 through the late 1960s and twenty-eight published since 1970.
YET surely the compilers of The Secret Relationship will feel that such disparities merely confirm their case--that by avoiding these older historical writings, the history establishment has been hiding the facts about the important role played by Jews in the enslavement of Africans and their descendants in the New World. The AHA pamphlet does not, in fact, even mention Jews. The compilers will no doubt take this omission as further confirmation that the participation of Jews has been kept a secret. A more serious difficulty with The Secret Relationship lies in its general stance toward historical evidence. The compilers assumed that the book would be most persuasive if it were based almost entirely on "Jewish sources"--that is, retrospective histories written by Jews--and that there would be general agreement with the proposition that each group can most persuasively write its own history, a proposition that most historians find either naive or dangerous or both. On occasion this strategy deprives The Secret Relationship of evidence that would have bolstered its case, as with estimates of the total number of Africans killed by the Atlantic slave trade. The compilers cite figures gathered by both Jewish and non-Jewish Western historians but ignore the higher estimates claimed by Joseph Inikori, an established scholar from Nigeria.
The compilers have avoided another distinction that most historians regard as crucial--that between primary sources, written at the time, and secondary ones, written later on the basis of the primary sources. The evidence presented in the footnotes consists almost entirely of secondary historical accounts, written mostly by Jews and often in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when Jews newly arrived from Europe were trying to establish themselves as full participants in their new country. At that time many of those immigrants saw the African slave trade and slavery as a key feature of the American experience, and participation in it as truly American. In fact, it was.
Many of these early Jewish-American writers thus missed the hideousness and the tragedy of what they were describing. Even Korn's 1961 article today seems downright blind to the suffering of the victims of the slave trade and their descendants. Since then, however, Jewish-American scholars have written some of the best studies of the internal workings of African-American slave communities in North America, and have been applauded by many African-American scholars for their understanding.
In assessing most historical works it is necessary to focus on mere details, on the minutiae that constitute the evidentiary base of the enterprise. The Secret Relationship includes numerous lists of Jewish shipowners and slaveholders. Its final chapter catalogues the involvement of numerous people with Jewish names who are documented as having participated in the persecution of Africans and especially African-Americans.
In addition, there are seventeen tables based on official U.S. Census data. These are drawn from the years 1790, 1820, and 1830, simply because those years are mentioned in secondary accounts written by Jews. There has been no analysis of the original data. The censuses of 1850 and 1860 are not considered, although the data from those two years were more informative.
To many readers, quibbling about census material may seem trivial; but when one gets down to individual cases, names and details are important in any historical work. The city of Newport, Rhode Island, was indeed active in the eighteenth-century slave and rum trades, and it had a flourishing community of Jewish merchants. Readers of The Secret Relationship are told that the writing of Jewish historians "seems to suggest that all the stills in Newport were owned by the Jews" in the eighteenth century. So much for the making of rum, a commodity commonly used in the slave trade and also a direct product of that same traffic. But what, then, is one to make of the fact that members of the Coggeshall family, who first came to Rhode Island as Quakers and later switched to the Church of England, were in the business of distilling on the eve of the American Revolution? In 1772 both Nathaniel Coggeshalls (father and son) were "distillers."
Readers wanting to explore such a matter will not be helped by the book's index, which has no entry under "Newport," even though that little city is discussed or mentioned on at least eight pages. Similarly, there are no entries for much briefer mentions of Natchez and New Orleans, though other cities are there, such as Detroit--not in the Ds but in the Ms, under "Michigan."
THERE are several interrelated problems with this study. It sets out to reshape the prevailing historical record concerning the treatment of Africans and African-Americans during the period of the slave trade and slavery. Far from asking any question at all, this book begins with an answer--that Jews were especially important in exploiting Africans. It is able to demonstrate, at least ostensibly, that they were. This is the central difficulty: the book sets out to prove a thesis and pays little attention to evidence that might modify or contradict it. If one were to inquire more neutrally into what role Jews played in the Atlantic slave trade, one would find that it was a considerable one during the formative years of the trade, in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and a very small one when the trade reached much greater volume, in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. This change in the role of Jews relative to the roles of other Europeans had to do with shifts in power and culture that occurred among various Atlantic-European nations over a period of some 500 years. The trade was dominated first by the Portuguese, then by the Dutch, and then by the English and, to a much lesser extent, the French.
The reasons for the important role of Jews in the early years of the slave trade are not hard to find. To put the matter in summary terms, Jews in medieval Europe had effectively been pushed by the Western branch of the Christian Church away from land ownership and into commerce and financial dealings. During those early years of western overseas expansion many Jews continued to find opportunities for drawing wealth from commerce and finance. Under heavy threat in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, many Portuguese and Spanish Jews found refuge in the Netherlands, a quasi-nation that by that time had a widely reputed tolerance for religious diversity. Jewish citizens of the Netherlands were able to participate in domestic and foreign trade, including the slave trade on the coast of West Africa and in the Americas. These Jews, along with many Christian Dutch traders, supplied slaves not only to the Dutch colonial enterprises in Brazil and Surinam but also to Curaçao and other islands in the Antilles for transhipment to the New World colonies of other European nations. Ironically, Jews were therefore able to make major investments in landed enterprises--which in tropical America meant slave plantations--in Brazil and then Surinam.
This brutal trade in human beings was carried on by various African peoples and sociopolitical entities in West and West Central Africa. The participation of these groups also waxed and waned over the 500-year period. Internal developments in Africa played an important part in determining how the trade varied from place to place and from time to time. The expansion of Dahomey and of the Asante kingdom, for example, along with the declension of power in Oyo, had fully as much effect upon neighboring African peoples as the different but roughly parallel shifts in the balance of power among European nations had upon Europe.
Developments in Africa are of course not the concern of The Secret Relationship. Owing to the nature of available data, historians will never know as much about international, inter-ethnic, and interreligious conflicts in western Africa as they know about those in Western Europe. In the latter region Protestants, Jews, and Roman Catholics, who lived in several political entities, traded in human beings with a great many more societies in Africa, whose members thought of their differences in such distinct terms as to defy comparison, but to whom such differences also mattered greatly.
One aspect of the present issue, however, is utterly clear: by focusing on the importance of the activities of one internationally distributed religious group of Europeans, the Jews, this book ignores diversities in Africa. In addition, by treating Africans as mere objects of trade, it deprives all Africans of their own agency, of their capacity to control or at least deal with their lives and their history, including the activities of powerful men who enslaved other Africans and traded them to Europeans. In effect, it treats millions of African people as a mere undifferentiated blob, a pool of helpless victims totally lacking in the perception, will, and power necessary to resist or to take advantage of economic opportunities. Such a focus radically distorts the historical record.
This theme also has a depressingly familiar ring, because for many years white Americans were saying almost exactly the same thing about black Americans. The dusty old image is still clear in its reverberatory way--those people really couldn't accomplish anything, for they were always and inherently acted upon, rather than taking active roles in determining their fate. Thus the reader is thrust backward in time, forced to stare at facing mirrors. The reflections bounce back and forth, continually conveying the earliest images generated not on the West African coast but in Western Europe and in its New World settlements. Those images originated with the oppressors, not the oppressed.

With regard to disorderly markets and a global financial crisis, if one will just look at the number of banks closely involved, they are all inter-related, many of them British owned and if they had continued to buy each others mortgage paper, we would not have had a problem.
THE FINAL TRUMP OF THE BRITISH OVER AMERICA
By Joan Veon, April 5, 2008
Unlike the 17th Century battles fought on American soil to give us our independence from Great Britain, the final battle of brilliant maneuvers and institutions began in 1903 to delicately orchestrate the gradual reintegration of the United States with Great Britain. The military genius of the plan would be for American armies to unite with Britain in the name of world peace; the common enemy being, WWI, WWII, and the war on terrorism. The second wave would be on an international level to bring order to a disorderly global market while merging financial and regulatory authorities. It was the money of one man that started the ball rolling.
Cecil John Rhodes, a British aristocrat who died in 1902, funded the merger by leaving his gold and diamond fortune as a means to bring America back under British rule, believing the British was the finest race in the world. Those agreeing with his mission included many wealthy American industrialists who, in 1903, pledged allegiance to the British Crown when they founded the Pilgrim Society. This powerful society still meets today as a secret membership. If you listen to the words of our politicians, such as New York Senator Charles Schumer and former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer you can hear their approval of anything British for America.
It is the men of the Pilgrim Society who determined the best way to re-unite the countries was to get America to come in on the side of the British during WWI, continuing through with World War II. Now the British have come to our aid with the war on Iraq and the War on Terrorism.
Rhode’s fortune also helped to fund the creation of the Royal Institute for International Affairs-RIIA in England, which is a key think-tank creating ideas and procedures in how best to merge our countries. The US counterpart is our Council on Foreign Relations. It was the Scottish industrialist turned American, Andrew Carnegie, who endowed America with its library system in his belief it would be good to re-unite the two countries into the “British-American Union.”
The British then took a brilliant step by passing the Statute of Westminster in 1931 in which the UK would establish legislative equality between the self-governing dominions of their empire and the mother country. As a result the Commonwealth was birthed. Between 1946 and 1989 Britain gave “independence” to 41 of its colonies.
But it was not enough for Britain to have the Commonwealth; they had to create an international system where they could outvote everyone else! The idea of the League of Nations came first through President Woodrow Wilson after World War I. Our then wise Congress swore its allegiance to the United States Constitution thereby preventing ratification. However, after World War II, the British idea of a United Nations was birthed as a means to end to all wars and to serve as the guardian of world peace.
Each time a British colony gained independence, they were given a vote at the United Nations and at the various UN agencies, commissions and organs. While the United States receives one vote at the United Nations, the Commonwealth receives 54. While the US receives one vote at the World Trade, the Commonwealth receives 46, and so forth. This type of imbalance is also seen at the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund. In other words, the British run the world through the international level that they set up!
That brings us to this hemisphere and the 14 year old North American Free Trade Agreement. Eventually all the countries of this hemisphere will be connected in a free trade zone like that of the European Union. Ours is called the Free Trade Areas of the Americas-FTAA.
With regard to NAFTA, Canada is a member of the Commonwealth and is a parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarchy. The proper title of the queen is, “Elizabeth the Second by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.” I think the question should be asked, “Does the Queen of Canada become the Queen of the United States?” As such when you consider the FTAA, there are 13 commonwealth countries in this hemisphere which means we are outvoted in our own hemisphere!
With regard to disorderly markets and a global financial crisis, if one will just look at the number of banks closely involved, they are all inter-related, many of them British owned and if they had continued to buy each others mortgage paper, we would not have had a problem. As I see it, there is no problem at all; there is a situation to create chaos so the problem can be solved according to the pre-determined plan to reemerge our countries. In many ways, the military is already merged. The structure of our congress is no longer the two sided republicans and democrats as both sides have the same global philosophy. Now the international bankers, who run the Treasury, have signed an agreement with the British to merge our Treasury Department and the SEC with theirs. This is NOT being addressed at the hearings between Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and our congress at the respective House and Senate committees.
This is a diabolical stealth move to use the global financial system as a way to merge the finances of our two countries with no public understanding of what is really happening. According to the 3/31/08 Financial Times, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and U.S. president George Bush have agreed to “step up cooperation over the crisis in financial markets by setting up a UK-US working group that will develop proposals to monitor and regulate the banking system.”
Thus far the new working group will be comprised of senior treasury and regulatory figures from London and Washington. It is reported they are working on a system of “individually tailored international supervision for leading banks and financial institutions involved with cross-border activity”. While other details will be confirmed next week at the IMF/World Bank Spring Meeting, it is recognized that this new body will meet “fairly intensely, sharing information, and over time, pushing through the kind of regulatory action that needs to be taken. It will also seek to improve day-to-day cooperation between regulators in the US and UK.”
The British have overturned the outcome of the War of 1812. British accents have become common on our TVs and radios. There is an increase in movies about the British monarchs. The British outvote the U.S. on all international levels. Powerful groups comprised of key CEO’s, economists, and politicians, such as the Pilgrim Society, the RIIA and the Council on Foreign Relations are working to reintegrate America under British rule. Our military and intelligence agencies now work very closely with one another, and now our financial and regulatory system is being merged through the UK-US working group. And I say to you, not one shot was fired!
