THE POWER ELITE AND THE SECRET NAZI PLAN

The year after the Nazis approved of American Thomas McKittrick being head of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), on January 25, 1943 Hearst newspapers reporter Burnet Hershey described the Nazis’ escape route via Spain as follows: “Every talk I had with the Germans in Lisbon made that fact clear. They may be defeated on the battlefield, as they were in 1918, but they expect to win again at the peace table as they did in 1919. Of course, they will sacrifice Hitler as they sacrificed the Kaiser; but the old gang—the generals, big industrialists, phony professors of mis-education about German race superiority—will try to go underground again to lay the eggs for another war of German conquest.” There are two very important points about this quote. First, it shows that over 2-1/2 years before they lost WWII, the Nazis were going underground. And secondly, Hitler was unimportant in this whole effort.
Who was important in the secret Nazi plan? It was Heinrich Himmler! About two years after Hershey’s report, on January 15, 1945 Newsweek reported: “Many of the men Himmler sent to Spain and Argentina, to carry out Nazi plans for postwar survival, carried passports under false names and later were reported dead in Germany. All have had training in Nazi political methods and experience abroad in commercial and other posts.” In T.H. Tetens’ Germany Plots With the Kremlin (1953), one finds that seven months after Hearst reporter Hershey’s description of the Nazis’ escape routes, on July 27, 1943 the German Foreign Office expert on the U.S., Dr. Colin Ross, wrote “Plan For An Ideological Campaign in the United States,” describing the need for all-out psychological warfare carried out by an underground organization in the U.S. (and in every country under “enemy” occupation).
Also important in the secret Nazi plan was Martin Bormann. Beginning in 1943 until June 1944, he transferred large amounts of gold across France to Spain and then on to Argentina, where his deposits were safe under the sympathetic Peron government. CBS World War II journalist Paul Manning in Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile (1981) related that Bormann’s organization controlled Germany’s big business, and via its investments controlled much of the rest of the world’s economy. It was the repository for the stolen wealth of Europe, estimated by British intelligence to have been more than $180 billion by the end of 1943. Then, relating information he found in the FBI’s file on Bormann, Manning wrote: “…the file revealed that he had been banking under his own name from his office in Germany in Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires since 1941; that he held one joint account with Argentinian dictator Juan Peron; and on August 4, 5 and 14, 1967, he had written checks on demand accounts in first National City Bank (Overseas Division) of New York, The Chase Manhattan Bank, and Manufacturer’s Hanover Trust Co., all cleared through Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires….”
Following what Sumner Welles revealed about the secret Nazi plan reaching fulfillment “in perhaps two generations,” Manning explained: “Bormann today may be likened to the classic chairman of the board of a vast international business complex, of an organization holding greater assets than any private investment house on Wall Street. Bormann, aged though he is (he was 80 on June 17, 1980), continues to guide the destiny of his financial empire. But he is sufficiently prudent and farsighted to realize that the assets he controls must be placed in younger hands, and today the leadership council of the senior NSDAP [National Socialist German Workers’ Party, Nazi Party] group is reflected in a younger generation, comprising professional managers, lawyers, and financiers, who are calling the shots as money and the trade are moved among the markets of the Americas and Europe. Their organization holds the bearer bonds that give him a voice in banks and industries of Germany, and likewise they hold blue chip stocks in U.S. heavy industries and chemical companies. They are represented too on the boards of corporations in France, Belgium, Holland, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Switzerland, as well as in a myriad of other countries, including those in their bastion, Latin America.”
Relevant to how the Power Elite (PE) uses the secret Nazi plan to bring Israel under its control via economic coercion, Manning wrote: “It has drawn many of the brightest Jewish businessmen into a participatory role in the development of many of its corporations, and many of these Jews share their prosperity most generously with Israel…. This has taken place in many other instances across America and demonstrates how Bormann’s people operate in the contemporary commercial world, in contrast to the fanciful nonsense with which Nazis are described in so much ‘literature.’ So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish participation in Bormann companies that when Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities in no uncertain terms that this must never happen again because a repetition would permanently rupture relations with the Germans of Latin America, as well as with the Bormann organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish money to Israel. It never happened again, and the pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of Jewish leaders. He is residing in an Argentine safe haven, protected by the most efficient German infrastructure in history as well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.”
In a related story, John Buchanan and Stacey Michael in “Bush/Nazi Link Continued” (The New Hampshire Gazette, November 7, 2003) revealed that “after the seizures in late 1942 of five U.S. enterprises he managed on behalf of Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, failed to divest himself of more than a dozen ‘enemy nation’ relationships that continued until as late as 1951, newly-discovered U.S. government documents reveal…. The records also show that Bush and the Harrimans conducted business after the War with related concerns doing business in or moving assets into Switzerland, Panama, Argentina and Brazil—all critical outposts for the flight of Nazi capital after Germany’s surrender in 1945.”
In 1944, Nazi Gen. Karl-Heinrich von Stuepnagel in the French newspaper Combat, was very clear about the Nazis’ perspective, stating: “Our defeat in the present war need not be considered except as an incident in the triumphal march of Germany towards the conquest of the world…. What does a temporary defeat matter if, through the destruction of people and material wealth in enemy countries, we are able to secure a margin of economic and demographic superiority even greater than before 1939?... We shall have to organize a campaign of pity designed to induce [our enemies] to send us needed supplies at the earliest possible moment. Above all we must hold on to the assets we have deposited in neutral countries. The present war will thus have been victorious, in spite of our temporary military defeat, because it will have been a march forward towards our supremacy.”
On March 30, 1945 the U.S. State Department indicated that in 1944, German patent registrations in foreign countries reached an all-time high. This was part of the secret Nazi plan for control after WWII. By the end of the year, in November 1944 the U.S. Senate Military Affairs Committee’s Subcommittee on War Mobilization issued a report on Cartels and National Security that indicated the Nazis “are already deploying their economic reserves throughout the world in preparation for a third attempt at world domination,” according to Sen. Harley Kilgore.
Martin Bormann’s success in spreading the Nazis’ assets around the world was heralded at the Nuremberg Trials by Hermann Schmitz, head of I.G. Farben and a director of the BIS. Farben’s N.W.7 division was, of course, close to Himmler’s SS and the Gestapo, and in Paul Manning’s Martin Bormann: Nazi In Exile, one reads that Schmitz at Nuremberg testified: “We can continue. We have an operational plan. However, I don’t believe our board members will be detained long. Nor will I. But we must go through a procedure of investigation before release, so I have been told by our N.W.7 people who have excellent contacts in Washington.” Incidentally, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands who formed the Bilderberg Group in 1954 was a Nazi SS officer who also worked for N.W.7.
Before in this series, I’ve mentioned the Nazis’ Gehlen Organization (GO) and Nazi Otto Skorzeny’s ODESSA network and how they worked together after WWII. In Martin Lee’s The Beast Reawakens (2000), one learns that former U.S. intelligence officer William Corson revealed: “Gehlen’s Organization was designed to protect the ODESSA Nazis. It amounts to an exceptionally well-orchestrated diversion,” so that the Nazis could continue their plan for world domination. Relevant to this, Martin Lee in The Beast Reawakens (2000) revealed that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Otto Skorzeny struck up a relationship that lasted many years. “Arafat would have done anything for Otto!” remarked Ilse Skorzeny (Otto’s widow).
I have also previously mentioned Operation Bloodstone, which brought Nazis to the U.S. and was originally approved on June 10, 1948 by the State-War-Navy Coordinating Committee (SWNCC). One of the original sponsors of Operation Bloodstone was Robert Lovett of the War Department, who was also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the secret Skull & Bones Society. According to Christopher Simpson in Blowback (1988), one month after Operation Bloodstone was approved, it was expanded to include covert operations including sabotage and assassinations.
John D. Rockefeller III was a senior Navy staff member of SWNCC, which approved of Operation Bloodstone. As member of the Power Elite (PE), he also founded the Population Council in 1953 and later (1973) wrote The Second American Revolution, applauding sexual liberation and the “humanistic revolution” while disparaging “old-fashioned nationalism.”
The president at the time Operation Bloodstone was approved and executed was Harry Truman, whom most believe to have been a patriotic nationalist. However, he carried in his pocket that part of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s “Locksley Hall” (1842) which called for “the parliament of man in the Federation of the world,” and he explained “that’s what I have been working for.” On June 28, 1945 Truman stated: “It will be just as easy for nations to get along in a republic of the world as it is for us to get along in the republic of the United States.”
Truman was an agent of the PE, nominated for the position of Vice-President under F.D.R. in 1944 by Oscar Ewing and others. Ewing was Vice-Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and also a lawyer for Standard Oil, CBS, Fox Films, and others. Among the others was Alcoa, for which Ewing facilitated agreements with the Nazis. In George Seldes’ Facts and Fascism, he reveals that “some of our biggest monopolies entered into secret agreements with the Nazis’ cartels and divided the world up among them. Most notorious of all was Alcoa, the Mellon-Davis-Duke monopoly which is largely responsible for the fact America did not have the aluminum with which to build airplanes before and after Pearl Harbor, while Germany had an unlimited supply.”
Today, the federal government is taking control over more and more (e.g., Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, General Motors, etc.). To the extent it has complete control over business entities, we are moving toward National Socialism. To the extent the federal government’s control is exercised via rules and regulations, it is Fascism.

This is part of the PE’s secret Nazi plan beginning in the 1930s. From Ambassador Dodd’s Diary (1941), George Seldes in Facts and Fascism quotes U.S. Ambassador to Germany William E. Dodd in 1937 as saying: “A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime…. Certain American industrialists had a great deal to do with bringing fascist regimes into being in both Germany and Italy. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there.”
