ANGLO-AMERICAN SUPPORT OF FASCIST ENEMIES DURING WORLD WAR II ANGLO-AMERICAN TRADE WITH FASCIST ENEMIES BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER WORLD WAR II
[note this is Part II of BREATHTAKING HUBRIS AND HYPOCRISY: THE NATURE AND FOUNDATIONS OF ANGLO-AMERICAN AND NAZI IMPERIUMS (PART I U.S. DEVELOPMENT AND COVER-UPS OF WMDS)]
During World War II, elements of the Anglo-American alliance were also in alliance, all through the war (some 380 U.S. corporations and several British) with the very Nazi-Japanese-Italian “Axis Powers” they were supposed to be fighting. See Charles Higham’s “Trading With the Enemy: An Expose of the Nazi-American Money Plot” (selected quotes and evidence) plus the whole book is available in pdf
FROM CHARLES HIGHAM’S TRADING WITH THE ENEMY PAGE XV:
“To this day the bulk of Americans do not suspect The Fraternity. The government smothered everything, during and even (inexcusably) after the war.
What would have happened if millions of American and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey managers shipped the enemy’s fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel? Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars’ worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan? Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorization from Dearborn, Michigan? Or that Colonel Sosthenes Behn, the head of the international American telephone conglomerate ITT, flew from New York to Madrid to Berne during the war to help improve Hitler’s communications systems and improve the robot bombs that devastated London? Or that ITT built the Focke-Wulfs that dropped bombs on British and American troops? Or that crucial ball bearings were shipped to Nazi-associated customers in Latin America with the collusion of the vice-chairman of the U. S. War Production Board in partnership with Goring’s cousin in Philadelphia when American forces were desperately short of them? Or that such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?
For the government did sanction such dubious transactions-both before and after Pearl Harbor. A presidential edict, issued six days after December 7, 1941, actually set up the legislation whereby licensing arrangements for trading with the enemy could officially be granted. Often during the years after Pearl Harbor the government permitted such trading. For example, ITT was allowed to continue its relations with the Axis and Japan until 1945, even though that conglomerate was regarded as an official instrument of United States Intelligence. No attempt was made to prevent Ford from retaining its interests for the Germans in Occupied France, nor were the Chase Bank or the Morgan Bank expressly forbidden to keep open their branches in Occupied Paris. It is indicated that the Reichsbank and Nazi Ministry of Economics made promises to certain U.S. corporate leaders that their properties would not be injured after the Fuhrer was victorious. Thus, the bosses of the multinationals as we know them today had a six-spot on every side of the dice cube. Whichever side won the war, the powers that really ran nations would not be adversely affected.”
THE REAL BUSH/NAZI CONNECTION AND ITS LEGACIES
Unfolding Nature and Foundations of the Anglo-American and Nazi-Japanese Imperiums
It was the Anglo-American governments and intelligence services that shielded wanted Nazi and Japanese war criminals from criminal prosecution and death at the hands of their victims. In return for their twisted “medical research” on live human subjects, both Japanese and German highly wanted war criminals were protected (sometimes by the same agency supposed to be seeking them as in the case of U.S. Army CIC officers looking for the likes of Mengele, Barbi and Japanese members of Unit 731 from a list, while other fellow CIC officers, unknown to many, were protecting them and getting them placed in highly sensitive positions in politics, medicine, education, criminal syndicates like the Yakuza and in Anglo-American intelligence services and national security policy positions.
The escape routes for wanted war criminals were called “Ratlines” and the hierarchy as well as some rank-and-file priests and nuns were also involved in aiding the escape and placement in sensitive positions of wanted war criminals/. Indeed the Catholic Church and its hierarchy had a long trail of complicity and covert support in the rise of Mussolini’s fascism, German fascism and fascism in many other places all under the banner of “Anti-Communism”. Many of them were involved in the most vile crimes imaginable including the development of WMDs using even captured Allied POWs and civilians in occupied territories.
“…it cannot be denied that a certain insufficient resistance to this atrocity [the Holocaust] on the part of Christians can be explained by an inherited anti-Judaism present in the hearts of not a few Christians.”
And later, with the assistance of many in the Catholic Church Hierarchy with definite fascist and proto-fascist sympathies, cover-ups of the actions of thousands of pedophile priests and threats of excommunication for anyone going to law enforcement:
“Ratzinger was personal responsible for moving the accused rapists from parish to parish, which only helped to increased the number of victims, which are now slowly after many years of silence being painstakingly and comprehensively pieced together and exposed. Instead of kicking out all the priest that were the homosexuals and rapist, Ratzinger threaten to excommunicate any of the other priest who shared evidence with the local authorities or the press. Charges against priest were to be investigated within the church’s own exclusive jurisdiction and everything was to be keep under absolute secrecy, restrained by perpetual silence and under the penalty of excommunication. Telling other people about what was going on behind closed doors, was strictly forbidden.
Father Tom Doyle, a Vatican lawyer was reportedly sacked after criticizing the Vatican’s handling of child abuse claims. He told the BBC that the Crimen Sollicitationis was a secret Vatican decree which imposed an oath of secrecy on victims, witnesses and those probing abuse claims and said that anyone breaking this would be excommunicated. It has been the explicit written policy of the Catholic Church to cover up all cases of child sexual abuse by the clergy, and to punish those who would call attention to these crimes by reveling information to the local police or press.” [see Bush Family Nazi Connections and the Black Pope]
Ratzinger’s Fascist Influences from pre-World War II continued with an attack on Islam in general that ignited and served to legitimate attacks against Muslims only a small percentage of whom had or have any connections with terrorism (and most of those were once or still are on the CIA “Asset” payroll) quoting a 14th-century Christian emperor on an ‘evil and inhumanity’ of Islam, Pope Benedict XVI ignites a global storm. What is he trying to do?
“‘Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.’”
Anglo-American Support for Hitler 1924 onward.
Hitler records in his “Mein Kampf” several periods where the embryonic Nazi Party, and later as it grew, would have been broken and dissolved had it not been for heavy financial and other support from Anglo-American banks and financiers like George Herbert Walker, Prescott Bush, J.P. Morgan, the Rockefellers, Henry Ford (whose book “The Eternal Jew” was Hitler’s inspiration for “Mein Kampf”) and others in Britain as well. This financial support, along with releases of critical patents, transfers of critical technologies, continued throughout World War II as treason in the form of “Trading With the Enemy”.
For those who argue that Hitler’s real pathological nature, intentions and “Master Plan” were not evident in 1924 or prior to his taking power as Chancellor in 1933, they have obviously never read Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”. I have a very rare edition of it published in America in 1940 after the Nazis had invaded Poland in 1939 but prior to the Nazi attack against the U.S.S.R and some other nations in Europe. And it should be noted that copies of “Mein Kampf” were given as gifts at weddings, to workers as prizes for hard work, and anyone without a copy at home in Germany risked being turned in just for not having a copy at home. Where after the first edition of “Mein Kampf” barely sold 20,000 copies, by 1928, and specifically by 1933, sales and readership were in the millions with a royalty to Hitler for each book sold.
In his “Mein Kampf” the pathology and evil of Hitler and his intentions and “Master Plan” are and were on full-view for all to see. Hitler not only lays out his virulent racism and anti-Semitism and its evolution in his life, but also lays out clearly: a) his views of a comprehensive and entrenched Nazi education system as critical and the foundation for all that is to follow to build and sustain the proposed 1000-year Reich; b) his years of “studying and suffering” and supposed lessons learned; c) his contempt for the masses as “stupid”, “emotional”, “feminine” and “simple-minded” along with hatred for any forms of parliamentary or representative “Democracy” and why; d) the nature and intentions of the Nazi state; e) his racial and ethnic theories and their origins in European occultism and the Thule Society, along with clear intent to exterminate Jews, Sinti-Roma, Communists, Socialists and others; the origins and nature of Pan-Germanic movements and imperative for “Lebensraum”; f) principles for forming, building and sustaining mass movements; g) the supposed evils of Judaism and Jews asserted to be at the center of all of the world’s evils; g) various masks worn and to be worn under various conditions and balances of power against adversaries in building the Nazi Party, taking power in Germany, forging alliances with others and eventually global domination; h) why nation-states with parliamentary “democracies” and racially/ethnically-heterogeneous populations are doomed to collapse; i) the calculated and cynical use of Religion to control and co-opt people and their allegiances; etc.
But most interesting his Hitler’s views on the power of the spoken versus written word, his studies of Propaganda [the most influential of which at the time was the work of the Americans Lippmann, Bernays and others] of which he was well aware. He also lays out his playbook and future intentions in terms of: rhetorical tricks; grandiose visual imagery; architectural style projecting grandiosity as at the party congresses; theatrical gestures and voice inflections; posturing and posing; use of memes and memetics; uses of uniforms and pagentry; the imperative and justification for lies in the service of Nazism; all of which he practiced and studied to forge hypnotic effects and control on large masses of crowds. He and Gobbels both had studied American propaganda techniques developed during WWI and added to the playbook” television, radio, mass rallies, myths and martyrs, revisionist history, occult symbolism and other techniques of mind control and mass persuasion still used and cited today in the texts on propaganda.
So there was no question, for anyone with an IQ over room temperature and with anything resembling a conscience and a soul, to know what Hitler was really all about and what he and his kind intended not only for Germany and any nations with Germans in it, but for the whole world. And there was also awareness, as the intentions and Master Plan of Hitler and the Nazis were unfolding, that is was very evident at the time.
This support for Nazis and Nazism continued during and well after World War II when high-level Nazis and Japanese fascists (some Italian ones too) and their assets, were not simply shielded from prosecutions to which other less-connected were subject, but they placed some of them in high-level and extremely sensitive and strategic positions in leading educational institutions, leading scientific laboratories as at Fort Detrick developing chemical, biological and atomic WMDs from their previous work, in the CIA, DIA, NSA. British MI-6, and other intelligence agencies, in leading “think tanks”, in high positions in the Republican Party and in politics in their respective countries after World War II. Their legacy was to help to fuel the Cold War, their pathological anti-Communism and anti-Semitism, and various forms of terrorism and carnage, via phony intelligence and exaggerations of Soviet threats and intentions that were never there.

Interestingly, some of the most hard-core and wanted Nazis like Otto Skorzeny, Walter Rauff, and some others, wound-up after World War II working for the Mossad as well as CIA and British MI-6 while at the same time leaders in the ODESSA working to hide wanted Nazi war criminals and to build a Fourth Reich. Some of the other wanted war criminals and Nazis, both classical and neo-forms of Nazism, wound up protected in the West as close lifelong friends of the so-called Dalai Lama of Tibet: Jorg Haider, head of Austrian Neo-Nazi Party; Miguel Serrano, head of the Chilean Nazi Party; Heinrich Harrer, leader of a Nazi Death Squad; “Dr.” Bruno Beger, mass murderer in “medical experiments at Auschwitz; Shoko Asahara, an admirer of Hitler and head of a Japanese cult that hit a Tokyo subway with Serin gas and killed many people; SEE and SEE and SEE
How was this possible that hard-core Nazis and anti-Semites could ever work for the Mossad and why would the Mossad hunting wanted Nazis work with them and shelter them from prosecution? Because first of all, from its very beginnings, Zionism and Zionists had no problem working with anti-Semites as they saw a mutuality of interests: the anti-Semites wanted all Jews out of where they were and so did the Zionists. Further, in terms of mentalities, they were quite similar and even Adolf Eichmann himself said “If I had been a Jew, I would have been an ardent Zionist.”

In June of 1895, the first entry into his new journal on Zionism, Theodor Hertzl wrote:
“In Paris, as I have said, I achieved a freer attitude toward anti-Semitism, which I now began to understand historically and to pardon. Above all, I recognized the emptiness and futility of trying to ‘combat’ anti-Semitism.”
and From Tom Segev, “The Seventh Million: Israelis and the Holocaust” Hill and Wang, NY, 1993
“Ben-Gurion hoped that the Nazis victory would become ‘a fertile force’ for Zionism.” (p. 18) “The ‘haavara’ (‘transfer’) agreement–the Hebrew term was used in the Nazi documents as well–was based on the complementary interests of the German government and the Zionist movement: the Nazis wanted the Jews out of Germany; the Zionists wanted them to come to Palestine. But there was no such mutuality of interests between the Zionists and German Jewry. Most German Jews would have preferred to stay in their country. The tension between the interests of the ‘yishuv’ [Jewish community in Palestine] (and, in time, the State of Israel) and those of world Jewry was to become a central motif in the story of the Israelis’ attitude to the Holocaust.” (p.20)
From the days of the earliest Zionists on, the leadership and some of the rank-and-file of both anti-Semites and Zionists were elitists and saw the masses as “stupid”, “simple-minded”, “rabble” to be cynically used for purposes and agenda they had no knowledge of and would not be able to understand. Indeed both the Nazis and the Zionist establishment had their own “Selection lines”: a) for the Nazis, the old, sick, young, political all went to the gas chambers immediately and others were sent to be worked to death or later murdered. In the case of the Zionist establishment, it was young, anti-Communist, ultra-religious, connected Jews “selected” to go to Palestine and not to the Nazi gas chambers; and it was the secular, socialist, non-Zionist, inter-married (with non-Jews), communists, trade unionists, aged and unconnected Jews “selected” to be left behind to face the Nazis:
From Tom Segev, “The Seventh Million: Israelis and the Holocaust” Hill and Wang, NY, 1993 PLEASE SEE
“Senator [Werner Senator of the Jewish Agency] who was active in bringing German Jews to Palestine, warned the Jewish Agency office in Berlin that if it did not improve the quality of the ‘human material’ it was sending, the agency was liable to cut back the number of certificates set aside for the German capital. The immigrants from Germany enjoyed all sorts of special benefits, Senator wrote. They received immigration certificates after only six months of agricultural training, while in other countries up to two years was required. Requests for family reunification from Germans with relatives in Palestine were also quickly approved. All this required special attention to the quality of immigrants, who should be true pioneers. Senator was not referring to occasional errors in judgment, he assured his colleagues; he was talking about a trend. More and more ‘ welfare cases’ were arriving from Germany, as well as too many ‘businessmen with children’ rather than single men and women. At one point it was decided that candidates above the age of thirty-five would receive immigration certificates ‘only if there is no reason to believe that they might become a burden here.’ Accordingly they had to have a profession. ‘Anyone who was a merchant’, the decision stated, or of similar employment, will not receive a certificate under any circumstances, except in the case of veteran Zionists.’ This was in 1935. ‘ In days of plenty, it was possible to handle this material [emphasis added]‘ , explained Yitzhak Gruenbaum. ‘In days of shortages and unemployment, this material [emphasis added] will cause us many problems…We must be allowed to choose from among the refugees those worthy of immigration and not accept them all.’ “
A second reason why Nazi-Zionist collaboration took place during and after the Holocaust is that there is no identity or necessary equivalence in Zionism and Judaism. The Zionists try to make an equation between Judaism and Zionism, to argue that any anti-Zionist is first and foremost an anti-Semite and/or any anti-Zionist Jew is a “self-hating Jew.” But the fact remains that from the very beginning of Zionism up to and including today, there are many devout Jews who have opposed Zionism out of a sense and duty to their Jewishness, their understanding of real Judaism, and out of sense of the “First Mandate” of Judaism and for all Jews: To to promote and stand on the sides of Righteousness and Justice. There are other Jews who are non-religious and non-Observant and who see their Jewishness as a matter of ethnicity and culture and not necessarily religion. Plus, Jews are no more monolithic than any other group on religion or any other question.
Further evidence of Zionism as fascism and racism and easily able to accomodate fascists and racists is the fact that Israel developed atomic weapons with Apartheid South Africa headed by individuals who had been interned by the British as members of the South African Nazi Party. When Israel was selling cluster bombs to Chile under Pinochet, and training the Chilean death squads in torture, the Chief “Internal Security Advisor” to Pinochet was none other than Walter Rauff, inventor of the Nazi mobile gas vans and sentenced to death in absentia at Nuremberg. While Otto Skorzeny, “Hitler’s Commando” was wanted as a war criminal and one of the heads of ODESSA hiding wanted war criminals and working to build a Fourth Reich, according to Victor Ostrovsky, a former Mossad Katsa, he was on an Israeli naval base in 1949 both on the U.S. payroll and training Israeli commandos.
Let None of Us Exult Too Soon…
In his essay “The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui”, Bertolt Brecht, referring to Hitler notes:
“Let none of us exult too soon; the womb is fruitful from which this one crawled.”
Indeed although the term fascism was coined by Mussolini the first open exponent of it, and although fascism is an historically-specific system, its ideological roots, its anti-Semitism and racism, its contempt for the masses, its cynical uses of masks and sugar-coated bullets, all go far back in history. The political-economic core of Fascism is monopoly capitalism and imperialism even as many fascists movements have used the words “national socialism”, as part of building a mass social base among many workers for whom socialism was a positive not negative term and system, Fascist and Socialists/Communists have always been bitter enemies each regarding the other as an “Existential Threat” the like mongoose regards the cobra and vice-versa.
Just as the legacies of the Anglo-British-Axis methods and histories of development of WMDs before, during and after WWII continue to this day, so it is that the legacies that produced these Anglo-British-Fascist alliances and all that they produced, go far back hundreds of years in Britain, America and elsewhere with the likes of the Anglo-American Taliban known as “The Puritans” who, in addition to being genocidal maniacs, anti-Semites, racists and the like, were also among the earliest of the Christian Zionists who favored a “gathering of the Jews” as a prelude to “The Rapture” and “Return of the Messiah” that they thought would occur in their lifetime.
