After the armistice was signed in 1918, the City banking dynasty immediately sat down at the drawing board and prepared for WWII. The Treaty of Versailles signed in 1919 was the worst possible peace treaty imaginable, and we can be sure that peace was not on the peacemakers’ mind. All the statesmen had to be from la-la land in order to give their approval to such impossible terms. The thirty-three billion dollars of war reparations the allies imposed on Germany couldn’t possibly be repaid and everybody knew it. Furthermore, when it was decided to split Germany in two by creating the Polish Corridor, the whole German population was profoundly humiliated. Such decisions were more than enough to set the wheels in motion for WWII, notwithstanding the fact that Stalin was waiting in the wings.
The Treaty of Versailles definitely indicated the direction in which the City was heading, and very soon the bankers found their mouthpiece, the man who would rally the German crowds. Adolf Hitler was noticed very early on in 1919. In spite of his poor physical condition, he had joined the army in 1914 at age twenty-five. Until then, he had been a poor, lost soul and the war had given him a purpose in life. Private Hitler volunteered his services as a dispatch runner, a very dangerous assignment, and was eventually promoted to the rank of corporal. His comrades thought he was rather weird, for he forever volunteered for the most dangerous missions, facing death repeatedly while remaining unruffled by it all. In 1916, he was wounded in the leg and went on R&R to Berlin where he became thoroughly disgusted with the apathy among German civilians with regards to the war. Upon returning to the front in the last days of the war, he was blinded by chlorine gas and returned to a starving, weary Germany to convalesce. Upon hearing that Germany had been defeated, he became totally despondent, and when he eventually snapped out of it, he was filled with deep hatred vaguely directed at groups within Germany.
In 1919, still in the army, this overly patriotic twit went so far as to inform on his fellow soldiers, and this led to the arrest and even the execution of many. The General Staff, embittered by Germany’s defeat and the unjust terms of the armistice, rewarded Hitler by promoting him to undercover agent and sending him on an indoctrination course at the University of Munich. He returned as an “education’ officer and started speaking out with great vehemence against the Communists. The mysterious Thule Society had taken Hitler under its wing and his fate was sealed.
Hitler swore vengeance on those who had put an end to the war, the only worthwhile experience he had ever known. Inexplicably, his ire was directed mostly at the perceived enemies from within Germany, the Communists and the Jewish Marxists. Moreover, Hitler had to have had serious psychological problems in order to advance the idea of a superior race made up of blond, blue-eyed Aryans. This was not a healthy idea to begin with, but it was especially so because Hitler happened to have a swarthy complexion and brown eyes that had most likely been genetically transmitted by a Jewish parent. It’s obvious that someone was manipulating this air brain.
In 1919, Hitler, the intelligence officer, dressed as a civilian in order to spy on a meeting of the German Workers’ Party in Munich. When one of the members suggested that Bavaria separate from Germany and join Austria, it touched a raw nerve in the extremely patriotic Hitler. He couldn’t resist lashing out at the whole gathering in spite of the fact that he was Austrian by birth. Nonetheless, he definitely had the gift of the gab and everybody was impressed. Understandably, the members of the Thule Society were quick to have him join the German Workers’ Party. He may have been uneducated with deep psychological problems, but now, this empty-headed megalomaniac guided by hate and vengeance was in politics.
Hitler was a great talker, but all the ideas he kept expounding over the years were those of the Thule Society. This fraternity consisted of a small group of influential Germans who believed in the superiority of the Aryan race. They were deeply nationalistic and racist and from the very beginning, they had the swastika in their coat of arms. It was Dietrich Eckart, a leading member of that society that helped Hitler hone his public speaking skills. As early as 1919, Hitler had definitely been taken in by the Thule Society, the group that gave birth to the Nazi Party.
At first, the violent methods used to promote Hitler and the German Workers’ Party didn’t have the desired results. They only succeeded in getting the whole country to view Hitler as a silly little man, a sort of bad-tempered clown. Nonetheless, by 1923, Germany was reeling under the effects of inflation, and Hitler’s backers thought the time had come to make their mark by overthrowing the Bavarian Government. However, the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, as it became known, failed and Hitler was arrested. That’s when Hitler’s supporters decided that force alone was not going to work and that it was best to use more politically-correct methods.
Hitler’s public trial lasted several weeks and, for some unknown reason, the authorities let this ridiculous little man flaunt his oratory skills throughout. He apparently seduced many of the judges, for instead of getting life he got five years and was eligible for parole within six months. He served nine months in luxurious quarters and even had a private secretary, Rudolph Hess, who was a member of the Thule Society. That’s when Hitler produced Mein Kampf, a book that could never have been written without the help of Hess, a man who had studied politics at the University of Munich. The writing of Mein Kampf was, without a doubt, a way to spread Thule Society propaganda.
Guided by the members of the Thule Society, and assisted by misfits like Joseph Goebbels, a communications and propaganda genius, Heinrich Himler, a cruel, cold-blooded psychopath, and Adolf Eichmann, a logistics genius, Hitler became Fuhrer in 1934. It’s obvious that the Nazi Party was a very costly machine to operate, and only the City, through the Bundesbank and the German arms industry, could have financed such a sophisticated political machine, for Germany was a devastated country. And as the arms industry revved up its production, the economy picked up, and Hitler, now seen as some kind of savior, easily convinced the German people that war was inevitable and that he was the one who could lead them to victory.
After WWII was declared, the German army went around the totally useless French Maginot Line with lightning speed and had the allies surrounded at Dunkirk in a matter of days. One can only wonder why, in an age of air and tank warfare, a great nation such as France spent huge sums of money in order to build an archaic structure, if not to allow Hitler to reach the Atlantic in record time. With the allied armies unable to retreat further, Hitler let the troops sail to England, no doubt hoping for a non-aggression pact in compensation for his good deed. However, England was apparently not willing to cooperate. Hitler then figured he might get the English to change their minds if he shook them up a bit. Eventually, the English must have given Hitler some assurances, for the London Blitz ended on May 10th 1941. Convinced that the western front was now secure, Hitler immediately turned his attention to the eastern front, and invaded Russia on June 22nd, 1941. Just like Napoleon in 1812, who had gone after the gold in the Urals, Hitler wanted to get his hands on something he really needed, the oil in the Caucasus. In both cases, the megalomaniacs’ armies were destroyed, and in both instances, their empires came to an abrupt end. The City tends to repeat what works well.
On December 7th, 1941, shortly after Hitler took off for Russia, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. It seems the City was thinking of China and wanted to destroy the Nippon Empire by using the might of America. In July of that year, Congress imposed an oil embargo on Japan, and the ensuing kamikaze approach to the war adopted by Japan proved the City right. Japan had tried to negotiate with the U.S., but everything possible had been done by the Americans to have the negotiations fail. The very proud Samurais were thus forced into a suicidal war, hanging on to the hope that an alliance with an apparently victorious Germany would improve their prospects.
If there’s any doubt that America was conned into going to war, a few facts should help dissipate it. Although the US and UK navies controlled the Pacific, and although there was a SCR-270 radar station with a 150-mile range installed in Honolulu, the Japanese were able to have a huge fleet of warships, including aircraft carriers, sail across the Pacific to Hawaii, and then launch squadrons of aircraft without anyone noticing. Furthermore, all the U.S. aircraft carriers had been sent out on sea exercises and only the very outdated WWI battleships and destroyers remained in port. The play became obvious when President Roosevelt, under the guise of protecting the U.S. air force, personally ordered all the military aircraft based at the Honolulu airbase to be positioned in such a configuration as to make them less vulnerable on the ground, but which had, in fact, the effect of preventing them from scrambling effectively. It seems that the City dynasty had simply let Roosevelt know it was time for war.
The City bankers succeeded in getting the U.S. to join the war at a cost of only 2,390 lives, the number of casualties at Pearl Harbor, a low human toll when considering the mindboggling number of casualties in WWI and WWII. The war in the Pacific got underway as planned, and the U.S. declared war on Germany without actually engaging Hitler for another three years. When the American troops did get into the thick of things on D-day, in 1944, Stalin’s troops came in from the east, and the Holy Germanic Empire was totally destroyed. As of that moment, all the Ancien Regimes of Europe, including Russia and the Ottoman Empire, could be considered demolished, and the Vatican tiger was at last toothless and declawed.
To have some idea which countries the City targeted in WWII, we need only look at the casualty numbers. Russia lost twenty-two million soldiers and civilians, while Germany and China suffered losses of eight million and twenty million, respectively. As for the UK, the U.S., and France, they lost around half a million each. We know that the City had wanted to destroy Germany, but why so many Russian casualties? And what was going on in China? For one, Russia had to be seriously weakened if it was to be trusted to play the scarecrow role it was on the verge of being assigned, and that will be explained in the next posting. In China’s case, the City obviously had let the Japanese mangle the Chinese warlords at will, for during the war it supplied China with just enough war materials for it not to capitulate. The City had fully intended to destroy Japan once the Chinese warlords were done in, and the time had come. China was ready to be transformed into the great market economy that it is today.
In 1944, in Bretton Woods, with the world having gone through the grinder, the City convened all the nations of the world and had no difficulty in creating the first official world currency of reference, the U.S. dollar. All the countries agreed to peg their currency to the dollar and use the dollar as a reserve currency. The City had achieved the ultimate in financial wizardry, the paper dollar was now as good as gold worldwide.
