PRINCES OF PLUNDER
THE SHAPE OF TREACHERY AND THE BRIDGE AT ARNHEM
By David Guyatt
If President George W Bush has his way, then the spread of the
American system of democracy will continue to proliferate around the
world. There are those, however, who argue that the American form of
“democracy” has little to do with genuine democratic representation but
rather more closely resembles a revolving fascist dictatorship beholden
to the interests of a wealthy elite and big business. 
This form of government, it is argued, has as its underlying model the
European Synarchist movement that was founded in the 1870’s, by Joseph
Alexandre Saint-Yves d'Alveydre. St Yves considered the medieval
Knights Templars to be ultimate Synarchists of their time and
consequently drew on Templar ideals when formulating his ideas.
St Yves movement came to the fore in the early 1920’s, following the end
of WWI and the signing of the Versailles Treaty  . In its essence,
Synarchy advocates that government be run by a secret society or cabal –
“an elite of enlightened initiates who rule from behind the scenes.”
 As authors Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince describe it: “…it
therefore doesn't matter which political party holds power in a state -
or even what political system that state has. Synarchists would step in
and take control of the key state institutions.” 
In the United States, one such secret society worthy of note is Yale
University’s Order of the Skull and Bones. Entry into the Order
involves elaborate ritual and is accompanied by a change of name. No
longer is the neophyte known by his family name, but assumes the
identity of a Knight.
Bonesmen include George W. Bush, his father George Bush senior and
Senator John Kerry. George Bush’s great grandfather, Prescott Bush, was
also a Bonesman, as was George Bush’s favourite uncle, Herbert Walker.
In point of fact, almost all of the so-called “Eastern Establishment”
families have been enrolled in the Skull and Bones. Author Antony
Sutton, in his groundbreaking four-part series “The Order,” states that
the US Order links to Britain through the Rhodes-Milner Oxford Group but
has German origins. The US Order also links to the Guggenheim, Schiff
and Warburg families, despite having definite anti-semitic tendencies
until more recent times. Sutton’s own research linked the Order to “the
founding and growth of Nazism”  and considered it likely that German
original was the Illuminati.
The Bush family’s political dynasty and indeed, its wealth, arose from
the nazi connections forged by Prescott Bush, who worked for nazi
magnate, Fritz Thyssen. Bush’s uncle “Herbie” (Herbert Walker), was
like-wise employed by Thyssen.  An even darker episode was reported
by a Dutch intelligence agent who stated that Prescott Bush also managed
a portion of the slave labour force located at I G Farben’s Auschwitz
plant - the infamous nazi death camp.  Working for Prescott Bush
was Allen Dulles, who would later become a director of the CIA,
following a highly questionable career in the war where he was posted to
the head up the Swiss office of the American intelligence service, the
OSS. Before the war Dulles was appointed the US legal counsel for I G
Farben. Another law client of Dulles was Fritz Thyssen. These
inter-relationships are, at the very least, very chummy. Some believe
them to be treacherous.
The key period of the growth of Synarchism followed on the heels of the
Russian Revolution and led to the rise of the Pan European Movement in
1922. The PEM was embraced by powerful forces inside Germany. This
included the wealthy banker, Max Warburg, who financed PEM. Warburg was
a director of the massive chemical cartel, I G Farben, that helped hoist
Adolf Hitler to power. Curiously, however, Warburg was also involved in
helping Lenin to travel to Russia in 1917, thus providing succour to the
Bolshevik Revolution that Hitler later so detested.  Is this simply
a case of the left hand not knowing what the right one was doing, or
could it be merely an example of the Hegelian dialectic of forging
conflict in order to forge the future shape and direction of human history?
In any event, besides Max Warburg financing PEM, another German banker
in the form of Hjalmar Schact, addressed the first mass rally of the Pan
European Movement held in Berlin. Schacht would go on to work for
Hitler as Minister for Economics and President of the Reichsbank. If
one believes in coincidence then behold a coincidence: together with
Hitler, Max Warburg signed the document that appointed Hjalmar Schacht
to the presidency of the Reichsbank. Imagine that. Max’s brother, Paul
Warburg, was a director of American I G Farben as well as being the
first director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. 
Known simply as the “AO” – the letters of the Greek Alpha-Omega – the
“Auslandsorganisation” was the foreign intelligence arm of the nazi
party that engaged in espionage, fifth column, propaganda and “economic”
activities in furtherance of nazi aims. Overseas members of the AO
operated largely through German owned or controlled overseas companies.
This include numerous employees of I G Farben both those based at home
and abroad. In fact, Farben not only ran the AO but financed it. 
One of the most senior Farben men involved in AO activities was Max
Ilgner, who was the nephew of Farben director Hermann Schmitz – who’s
ambition was to “form a world fascist state without war if possible.” 
Ilgner, who was a uniform wearing member of the feared Gestapo, had
allied Farben’s intelligence unit known as “NW7” with the AO, and had
recruited an army of 5,000 that operated through American I.G. 
Another member of Farben’s NW7 department, was Gunther Frank-Fahle, who
had been born in Bradford, England. Although the nominal head of the AO
was Ernst Wilhelm-Bohle, it was actually under the direct day-to-day
control of Walter Schellenberg, head of the SD, the Gestapo’s
counterintelligence service – who described Farben as a “state within a
state” to his interrogators after the war. However, the overall boss of
the AO was deputy fuehrer, Rudolf Hess.
The industrialists and bankers, who funded Hitler’s rise to power in
1933, had their contributions processed through Hjalmar Schacht’s
account at the private Delbruck Schickler Bank in Berlin. The funds in
this account were administered by Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess.
Delbruck Schickler Bank was a subsidiary of Metallsgesellschaft A G
(“Metall”), by far the largest non-ferrous metal company in Germany.
Metallsgesellschaft was jointly owned by I G Farben and the British
Metal Corporation.  One of the two British directors of “Metall”
was Oliver Lyttelton who was appointed the Controller of Non-Ferrous
Metals in 1939-40 and became the Minister of Production in 1942-5 and a
member of Churchill’s War Cabinet. Lyttlelton’s mother was by a merry
coincidence, a member of the Rhodes-Milner Oxford “Group,” whereas the
eldest son of the fifth Baron Lyttelton has been the private secretary
to Lord Selborne during his years in South Africa. Selborne would take
over leadership of the “Group” following Milner’s death in 1925. He was
also, as I have remarked elsewhere, the wartime head of Britain's
Special Operations Executive, which was the template for the American
As stated earlier, the “Group” is the British arm of the American Order
of the Skull and Bones – or is it the other way around?  Either way
the Skull and Bones is a “chapter of a German secret society. The
“originating” prong of the “Group” and the “Order” are, in the view of
Prof. Antony Sutton, almost certainly the outlawed Bavarian Illuminati.
THE “RED HOUSE” MEETING
It is self evident that the same behind-the-scenes banking and
industrial forces who financed Hitler’s rise to power, as well as his
subsequent military build-up, would also take all necessary steps to
protect their hard investments once it became clear Hitler and Germany
were doomed to defeat. Clarity arrived with the devastating defeat of
Field Marshall von Paulus 6th Army Group at Stalingrad in January 1943.
Any lingering doubts were erased with the Allied invasion of Normandy on
6th June 1944. Unable to repulse the Allied D-day invasion forces back
into the sea, it was clear for all to see that Hitler’s days were numbered.
Two months after the D-day landings, a secret meeting was held in an
elegant hotel in Strasbourg that was aimed at securing and protecting
the wealth of nazi Germany and its loyal bankers and industrialists. On
the morning of 10th August 1944, SS Obergruppenfuehrer Scheid, a
lieutenant-general in the Waffen SS – as well as a director of the
industrial company Hermansdorff & Schenburg - arrived at the Hotel
Maison Rouge set in Strasbourg’s rue des France-Bourgeois. Dr. Scheid
had been sent to host the meeting by none other than Reichsleiter Martin
Bormann, by then the second most powerful man in nazi Germany, after
Bormann’s rise to power followed on from the ill-fated flight of Rudolf
Hess in 1941, when he parachuted to land in Scotland to secretly meet
with the Duke of Hamilton. With the loss of his friend, and his plans
for creating a secret alliance with Britain to fight Russia in tatters,
Hitler had heaped all of Hess’ duties and responsibilities on to the
broad bull-like shoulders of Bormann – with the exception of the office
of deputy fuehrer, which Hitler abolished. This included Bormann taking
over control of the AO.
In sending Dr. Scheid to Strasbourg, Bormann had confided in him that:
“the steps to be taken as a result of this meeting will determine the
post-war future of Germany,” adding that the plan was to insure an
eventual “economic resurgence of Germany.”  Present at the meeting,
in addition to Dr. Scheid, were representatives of Krupp, Messerschmitt,
Rheinmetall, Bussing, Volkswagenwerk, engineers representing various
factories in Posen, Poland – including Brown-Boveri – an important part
of the German electrical industry that was part owned by two American
companies – General Electric and International Telephone & Telegraph.
Today, Brown Boveri has grown into a massive multinational corporation
employing almost 200,000 staff worldwide and still maintains it close
contacts with the US. Prior to his appointment as George W Bush’s
Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld was on its board of directors. 
Bormann’s direction was that the industrialists should forge new
contacts and alliances with foreign firms, as well as strengthening
those already established. This should be done without attracting
suspicion. Equally important was the capital flight programme of state
and corporate assets to safe havens through the world, which Bormann
ordered. Thus began Operation Eagle’s Flight. Critically, Bormann
believed he needed nine months to fully complete the planned capital
flight programme.  This meant that German forces must resist the
Allies advance throughout the winter of 1944 and on until early mid May
1945. By a remarkable twist of fate, the war in Europe ended on 8th May
1945, two days short of Bormann’s estimate.
Less than a month later, however, English Field Marshall, Bernard
Montgomery, laid out a daring plan that, were it to succeed, would have
completely wrecked Bormann’s critical nine-month programme. When, on
23rd August 1944, the Supreme Allied Commander, General Eisenhower,
visited Montgomery’s HQ for lunch, followed by a private conference,
Montgomery argued that German forces were in complete disarray and that
a decisive thrust into the Ruhr would result in the end of the war
before Christmas 1944. At Montgomery’s insistence, Eisenhower’s Chief
of Staff, General Walter Bedell Smith was excluded from the meeting,
causing rancour.  Eisenhower left Montgomery’s HQ unconvinced and
With the closing of the Falaise gap, Montgomery was determined not to
let Eisenhower waste a golden opportunity to bring the war to a close in
1944. On 4th September, Montgomery sent a coded signal “Personal for
General Eisenhower Eyes Only,” laying out in detail an audacious plan to
seize strategic bridges in the Netherlands followed by a full-blooded
armoured thrust into Germany through the back door of the Ruhr – the
very heartland of German industry and, coincidentally home to many of
those industrialists Dr. Scheid’s capital flight conference had
addressed less than a month earlier. The plan, which would become known
as Operation Comet, was rejected by Eisenhower. Montgomery strenuously
objected and a revised plan called Operation Market Garden, that would
muster considerably more forces than the original Operation Comet, was
eventually agreed on 10th September 1944 by Eisenhower. The final
bridge to be captured by British airborne forces and held until the
arrival of the armoured forces was located at Arnhem.
By coincidence too, it was the 4th of September, that Field Marshall
Model directed Lt. General Bittrich’s badly mauled but veteran II SS
Panzer corps to bivouac in the Arnhem area to refit and rest. Bittrich
later stated that “there was no particular significance in Model
choosing the Arnhem vicinity – except that it was a peaceful area where
nothing was happening.”  Now in hindsight when armed with
Bormann’s vital need for a full nine months for his capital flight
programme to reach fulfilment, one wonders if other more subterranean
factors influenced Model’s decision? Was treachery involved?
What is known for a fact is that Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands had
been appointed Commander in Chief of Dutch forces by Queen Wilhelmina.
During the weeks following the D-day landings, Prince Bernhard had
remained in constant contact with his Ministers, the US
Ambassador-at-Large, Anthony Biddle, and General Bedell Smith. 
His close contact with these men was hardly the result of mere chance.
As we shall see, nothing was to be left to chance by Bormann’s
A member of the Biddle family, Thomas Bradish Biddle, had been amongst
the very first members of the Order of the Skull and Bones, having been
tapped in 1839, just six years after it founding in 1833. Anthony
Biddle who’s full name was Anthony Joseph Drexel Biddle Jr., was not
himself a member of the Order. Never the less, he was no innocent.
During the early months of WWII, Biddle was in Paris as the US Deputy
Ambassador to France. It was here that he became close friends of the
pro-nazi Duke and Duchess of Windsor, who spent a considerable period of
time living in the home of Baron Eugene de Rothschild. However,
Biddle’s greatest friend in Paris was Ambassador William Bullitt.
Bullitt also held strong pro Hitler views and was responsible for
introducing the American millionaire, Charles Bedaux, to the Windsor’s.
Bedaux was a good friend of I G Farben’s Hermann Schmitz, and had, in
fact, been appointed as head of Farben’s commercial operations. His
involvement with the Windsor’s wasn’t accidental, as he had been
instructed by no less than SS Chief Heinrich Himmler to inveigle them to
help in secret plans for a negotiated peace with England. A secret
meeting held in the Hotel Meurice in Paris, between Bedaux, Rudolf Hess,
Martin Bormann and Hollywood actor and nazi sympathiser Errol Flynn, the
Duke of Windsor promised to help Hess contact the Duke of Hamilton,
which “finally led to Hess’s dramatic landing on the Hamilton Estate in
Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands also has a decidedly nazi past.
German born as Prince Bernhard zur Lippe-Biesterfeld, he joined the nazi
party in the early 1930’s, eventually donning the SS uniform. By 1935
he was gainfully employed in I G Farben’s intelligence department NW7.
His match to Princess Juliana, the daughter of the Dutch Queen
Wilhelmina, was reportedly arranged by Farben director, Gerhard Fritze,
a relative of NW7’s chief, Max Ilgner.  At their marriage
ceremony, the Prince’s closest friends struck up the old favourite, the
Horst Wessel song, which was the anthem of the Nazis. Shortly after the
marriage, the noble prince travelled to Berlin for a private meeting
with Hitler, who had publicly intimated that the marriage represented an
alliance between both nations - which was refuted by Queen Willhelmina.
More telling was the fact that when he arrived in England, after the
outbreak of war, and asked to work in British intelligence, his offer
was declined by the Admiralty, because they didn’t trust him. Nor did
the Supreme Allied Commander, General Dwight Eisenhower who refused him
access to sensitive intelligence information. However, with the
intervention of King George on Prince Bernhard’s behalf, he was
eventually allowed to work in war planning councils. Whoops.
Moving on quickly; to understand the very special relationship between
Prince Bernhard and General Walter Bedell Smith – who most certainly had
complete access general Eisenhower’s intelligence - we need to advance
several years. After the war, Prince Bernhard is believed to have been
profitably employed dealing in art stolen during the war. Gerben
Sonderman, who Prince Bernhard described as the “best friend I ever had”
(presumably Adolf had by then been forgotten?), acted as the prince’s
private pilot for transporting stolen art, according to Ton Biesemaat,
who has written an expose of the art ring called “The Correggio Mystery.
In 1941, Sonderman, a Dutch Fokker pilot, developed contacts with
Germans involved in plundering Dutch art works. A close contact of his
was Alois Miedl, a “banker, spy and art dealer” who occasionally dressed
in SS uniform.  After the war, Miedl operated on behalf of the
ODESSA, the SS escape network that transported nazi war criminals to
safety in South America – particularly Argentina, where Bormann is
believed to have escaped to. This also is a favourite destination for
Prince Bernhard after the war, where he was usually accompanied by his
best friend, Gerban Sonderman.
Another of those seemingly involved in this stolen art-trading ring was
Hungarian nobleman, Prince Alfred zur Lippe-Weissenfeld, a relative of
Prince Bernhard. By another of those remarkable coincidences, Prince
Alfred’s daughter was the wife of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza
de Karzon, son of Fritz Thyssen’s brother and heir to the Thyssen family
Walter Bedell Smith, who as we have seen above, was in close contact
with the prince during the period that Montgomery was drawing up his
initial plan to capture the Dutch bridges and then dash to Berlin via
the Ruhr. Just how close this friendship to Prince Bernhard was can be
judged by the fact that after the war both he and Prince Bernhard went
into business together. One might describe it as an “import-export
company” because it involved an art trading company called “Bernard Ltd”
that uses military aircraft to fly between Soesterberg – a short
distance away from Prince Bernhard’s palace Soestdijk – and the USA.
In addition to his close personal friendship with Prince Bernhard, in
August 1945, Bedell Smith donated his private plane to secretly fly nazi
master spy Reinhard Gehlen, and five of his general staff, to Washington
for secret talks. This move was in complete contravention of prevailing
American policy and, according to author Charles Higham, could have
resulted in court martial proceedings against Bedell Smith. 
Prince Bernhard’s family relationship with that of the Thyssen’s may go
some way to explain why, in 1945, together with a unit of Dutch
intelligence, Prince Bernhard travelled to the Russian zone in Berlin to
recover a batch of buried “incriminating corporate papers” belonging to
Fritz Thyssen, that evidenced “secret Thyssen ownership.” This small
favour was carried out under the pretext that the daring Prince was
recovering the Dutch crown jewels stolen by the Nazis. The papers were
returned to Holland and deposited in the Bank voor Handel en
Scheepvaart, in Rotterdam, which was secretly owned by Thyssen. Known
as “Operation Juliana” this cunning scheme was a body blow to Allied
investigators who were anxiously seeking the “missing pieces of the
Thyssen fortune.”  The US attorney to the Rotterdam bank was Allen
Dulles, who had migrated from the OSS office in Bern, Switzerland, to
become the US intelligence chief in post-war Germany.
FENCING THE ROSE
The Lippe family appears to have any number of connections to
enterprises with intelligence connections. Take for example, the Order
of the Rose of Lippe, a chivalric Order awarded to German House of
Lippe. An offshoot of this order is the Noble Company of the Rose,
founded by Ernst August Prinz zur Lippe – the first cousin of Prince
Bernhard - and Sir Rodney Hartwell. Today, the Noble Order of the Rose
is awarded exclusively and by invitation only to members of a curious
research institute with a focus on genealogy, royalty, nobility,
chivalry, heraldry, and related topics called The Augustan Society that
is housed in a mansion located in the Mojave Desert near Dagget, USA,
and which was founded in 1957.
The curiosity here is that many of the early, and some of the founding
members, were formerly with wartime intelligence services, mostly the
OSS. These included Crolian Edelen, Robert Formhals, Robert Gayre, John
Driscoll, George Balling and Forest Barber – all of whom had also
earlier been Shickshinny knights, a so called “fake” Order that claimed
descent from the Russian Grand Priory of the Order of St. John of
Jerusalem. The Shickshinny knights boasted some really heavy weight
English and American pro nazi military and intelligence officers. 
It is alleged that the number one activity of the Augustan Society is
intelligence gathering and that several members of the Society began
working together three of four years before officially incorporating it
as a legal entity (thus dating it back to circa 1954 – of which more
later). It is also said that it is an intelligence front for SMOM, the
official Vatican Order of the Knights of Malta.
The Augustan Society was originally located in Torrance, California, a
location that gave rise to an insider adage “when you hear a sneeze in
Torrance, you hear a ‘God Bless you’ on the Via Condotti.” The Via
Condotti is the location of the Palazzo di Malta in Rome, the HQ of
SMOM. The SMOM connection to this story is not without considerable
interest. Members of this order have included such nazi notables as Dr.
Herman Abs, a director of I G Farben and Deutsche Bank and who was known
as “Hitler’s paymaster.” Robert Gayre, one of the founders of the
Augustan Society was awarded the Grand Cross of Merit of SMOM. Another
to be honoured by SMOM was nazi spymaster, Reinhard Gehlen – discussed
above – who received the prestigious Grand Cross of Merito Melitense in
1948. Another honoured by SMOM was James Jesus Angleton, to whom we
shall return shortly. Neither of the Dulles brothers were honoured by
this August body simply because they were Protestants rather than
Curiously however, Martin Bormann’s eldest son, Adolf Martin chose to
take holy orders in 1946 following a preliminary course at Federaun
Monastery, located close to Villach in Austria. This monastery was
under the patronage of Bishop Hudal – one of the most senior Vatican
insiders who was responsible for running the nazi underground escape
railway known as the Ratlines. More alarming is the fact that Hudal was
the “guardian” of Aldolf Martin Bormann, as he was also the guardian of
another monk, Brother Avery Dulles, son of John Foster Dulles, elder
brother of Allen Dulles. It’s a small world isn’t it.
The Knights of Malta were also responsible for helping thousands of the
worst Nazis and members of the SS escape to freedom down these Ratlines,
thus evading justice and avoiding the hangman’s noose at Nuremberg.
Originally conceived as an underground railroad for wanted war
criminals, it was quickly co-opted, I understand, to smuggle nazi gold,
currency and other plunder to replenish the enormous sums lost by the
Rockefeller family in pre-war German investments. Assisting Rockefeller
in this sleazy endeavour were, Allen Dulles, Herbert Walker and James
Jesus Angleton, the OSS Italian bureau chief and later CIA Rome Bureau
chief. As such Angleton was in charge of the Vatican “account” and I
understand that he learned about the homosexual proclivities of Pope
Pius XII (formerly the Papal Nuncio in Bavaria) and was able to use this
information for blackmail purposes. Meanwhile, Allen Dulles, Herbert
Walker and James Jesus Angleton are said to have benefited most
handsomely from “commissions” earned for their assistance in shifting
plunder on behalf of the Rockefeller’s. Angleton benefited even more
since he was able to co-opt SMOM, the intelligence arm of the Vatican,
to work on behalf of US intelligence interests.
Patrons of the Augustan Society are listed as Ernst August Prinz zur
Lippe, Dr. Otto von Habsburg – the old Austro-Hungarian Imperial House –
and Prince Victor Emmanuel of Savoy – son of King Umberto II, the last
Italian king who was forced to relinquish his throne after the war for
being pro-Mussolini.  Prince Victor Emmanuel is the Grand Master
of the authorised Vatican chivalric Order of St. Maurice and St. Lazarus.
Another of those beguiling coincidences is that Robert Gayre, who is
mentioned above, was the head of the US branch of the racist
organisation, the International Association for the Advancement of
Eugenics and Ethnology, which is headquartered in Scotland. Eugenics
formed a very powerful undercurrent in nazi ideology and thinking.
The IAAEE was founded by Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton who was a Wing
Commander in the RAF during WWII. Lord Malcolm was, moreover, a member
of the “Cliveden Set” - which is another name for the Rhodes-Milner
Oxford “Group” – that was sympathetic to Hitler’s war aims. Not least,
Lord Malcolm had the honour of being the brother of the Duke of Hamilton
who, as we know, was the host of Rudolf Hess after his flight to
Scotland in 1941.
Colonel Gayre also founded the Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem in
Edinburgh, with the US branch of this Order being established by Lord
Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton. Lord Malcolm is a relative of the late Queen
Mother via his mother, Pamela Bowes-Lyon. Robert Gayre was also the
vice president of the International Commission for Orders of Chivalry
(ICC). The VI International Congress of the ICC was held in Edinburgh
in 1962, under the Honorary Presidency of the Duke of Edinburgh and was
presided over by the Duke of Hamilton.
THE BRIDGE TOO FAR
With this diversion fairly comprehensively covered, let’s now briefly
return to the actual events of Montgomery’s audacious Operation Market
Garden – the approved plan to take and hold the five Dutch bridges that
would open a way for a massive Allied thrust at the heart of Germany.
Those who have seen the excellent film, based on Cornelius Ryan’s book
“A Bridge Too Far” will recall the sheer stubborn courage of those
soldiers of the Third Battalion of the US 82nd Airborne, under the
command of Major Julian Cook, who paddled across the Waal river in slow,
cumbersome boats, under a blizzard of deadly German fire, to assault and
hold the heavily defended but critical Nijmegen road Bridge, a few miles
south of Arnhem.
This was a last ditch attempt to relive the sorely battered British
paratroops at Arnhem led by Colonel John Frost. Eventually succeeding,
at terrible cost, the Nijmegen Bridge was taken and held. But rather
than rushing armour up the road to Arnhem to relieve Colonel Frost and
ensure success of Montgomery’s daring plan, a British Guards Major
arriving at Nijmegen Bridge told his American counterparts that “we do
not move our tanks at night.”  A furious Colonel Tucker, the
regimental commander of the American 504th – that had secured the
bridge, vehemently argued there was no time to waste before the Germans
reinforced and that the British must grab the chance to reinforce Frost
at Arnhem. Immune to these arguments, the English Major repeated “Well,
we can’t move our tanks at night,” and then added “We will move them in
the morning.”  The next morning, as expected, the whole area was
heavy with German armoured reinforcements.
Cornelius Ryan does not name the Grenadier Guards Major in his book,
which is unusual. There also appear to be some critical inaccuracies in
the chain of events he sets forth in his book.
A recent BBC documentary series called “Battlefields” presented by
historian Prof. Richard Holmes, focused one programme on “The Battle for
Arnhem.” The programme makers interviewed on camera Captain Moffatt
Burriss, commander of “I” company of the 504th, who was present when
General Horrocks first asked to Colonel Tucker, commander of the 504th,
if he would take the heavily defended bridge by assaulting across the
Waal. According to Burriss, General Horrocks said “This is an awesome
task, can your lads do it?” Tucker replied, “Well general, if we take
the bridge, will your tanks be lined-up ready to go?” Horrocks replied,
“My tanks will be lined-up in full force, hell-bent for Arnhem and
nothing will stop them.” 
Once the bridge had been taken, it was Captain Burriss who welcomed the
first tanks across, and was astonished when they stopped. He asked the
sergeant in the first tank why they had stopped. The sergeant who was
commanding the first three tanks – soon to be joined by a fourth under
the command a the Grenadier Guards major – said that there was a German
anti tank gun up ahead and that “if I go up there that gun will knock
out my tank.” Burriss said, “Well, we’ll go with you and get that gun.”
But the offer wasn’t accepted because, the sergeant said “No, I can’t
go, I’ve got no orders.”  A situation that is in marked contrast
to General Horrocks intentions and his direct pledge to Colonel Tucker.
According to the Grenadier Guards war diary, they bridge at Nijmegen was
merely “consolidated.” Also appearing on the interview was the
Grenadier Guards major, who said, “it would have been quite difficult to
go ahead.” Captain Burriss didn’t see it that way. He said during the
programme that he “felt betrayed.” His men had taken the bridge at
massive cost, facing machine guns, 20mm canons and numerous other
weapons, but the British “were stopping because of one gun and they had
a whole Corps of tanks” at their disposal.
There was virtually nothing between the Grenadiers and Arnhem 8 miles
away. At the north end of Arnhem Bridge the British paratroopers still
held out. With an injured Colonel Frost, his second-in-command Major,
Tony Hibbert of the 1st Parachute Brigade, fought on. He could hear the
tanks of the Grenadier Guards in the distance. But they didn’t arrive.
Interviewed for the BBC programme he reflected wryly, perhaps even
bitterly, that the Market Garden plan “Could and should have worked,”
adding with a wry look that the tanks under the control of Lord
Carrington were “over the bridge before we were overrun.”
THE LOST BOYS
Royal patronage of the Grenadier Guards can be seen by virtue of the
fact that reigning British monarch’s are usually appointed as
“colonels-in-chief” of the Regiment. It is one of only five British
regiments who have the honour of trooping the monarch’s “colour” the
royal flag – in front of the Monarch on the occasion of their official
birthday. The ceremony derives from mounting guard of the royal family
and palaces and as “Household Troops” the Grenadiers are one of the
regiments who have the honour of guarding the monarch. The rank and
file of the Grenadiers swear an oath of allegiance to the monarch as
head of the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom. It is considerable
significance that the oath is sworn to the reigning British monarch and
not to Parliament. Interestingly, the first public engagement of the
present monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, took place in 1942, when as a younf
princess she inspected the Grenadier Guards on her 16th birthday.
The Grenadier Guards officer he was referring to was Major Peter
Alexander Rupert Smith, of the extremely powerful and influential Smith
family - an almost publicly unknown dynasty of bankers that dates back
350 years. It was in the 1650’s when Thomas Smith founded Samuel Smith
& Co, Bankers in Nottingham, which is believed to have been the first
English bank headquartered outside of London. Successive generations of
Smiths ensured that the family business flourished and by 1902 a total
of ten branches were operating.
Not only did a leading member of the family befriended Lord Rothschild,
but a family member later married a Rothschild. A further dynastic
marriage was to the well-known Baring family of bankers. Their
influence kept on expanding and expanding. Frances Dora Smith married
Sir Claude Lyon-Bowes, who were the grandparents of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon
who would marry Prince Albert (Bertie) in 1923. Prince Albert became
King George V1 in 1936 and Elizabeth become Queen Elizabeth 1 - later
known as the Queen Mother. Frances Dora Smith married Sir Claude
Lyon-Bowes, who were the grandparents of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon who
married Prince Albert (Bertie) in 1923. Prince Albert became King George
V1 in 1936 and Elizabeth become Queen Elizabeth 1 - later known as the
Queen Mother. In recent years, newspaper article concerning the Queen
Mothers favourable attitude to the “pro-peace movement” spoke of her
“desire to avert war with Germany and for closer ties to be established
between the two countries.”  One newspaper went so far as to state
that the Queen would have willingly accepted a German occupation
providing that the monarchy and her place in it remained intact. 
Her brother, David Bowes-Lyon, to whom she was exceptionally close was,
before the war, a director of Lazard Brothers bankers and who also held
an “important but vaguely defined role in SOE.”  The Lazard’s
connection is significant inasmuch as this bank was a link to pro-nazi
Sir Henri Deterding of Royal Dutch Shell and Viscount Bearsted of Hill
Samuel, both of whom connect to Baron Kurt von Schroder – a hard core
nazi, a financier of SS chief Heinrich Himmler and a leading member of
the “circle of friends of the Reichsfuhrer.” Von Schroder coincidentally
employed Allen Dulles as his American attorney  Royal Dutch Shell
has long believed to be largely owned by the Dutch and British royal
Von Schroder was also a member of the Anglo-German Fellowship and a
director of the bankers, Lazard Brothers. The Anglo-German fellowship
was founded in 1935 by German banker Ernest Tennant - a close friend of
Hitler’s Foreign Minister, Joachim von Ribbentrop - and had numerous
members who admired Hitler. Some, went even further.
For example, Sir Oswald Mosley founded the fascist British Black shirts,
which was funded by Berlin. Another was nazi enthusiast, Admiral Sir
Barry Domville, who would later become a Shickshinny Knight. 
Charles Edward, Duke of Saxe Coburg & Gotha was sent by Hitler to
England to be the President of the Fellowship with instructions to
improve Anglo-German relations and to push for an alliance between both
countries. Another member was the Duke of Hamilton, who as we have
seen, was the British point of contact sought by Rudolf Hess in his
flight to Scotland. Saxe Coburg Gotha is, of course, the real family
name of the British royal family, who changed to Windsor during the
First World War to dilute any expressions of animosity by the British
The connections of the British royal family to the Nazis continue.
Prince Phillip Mountbatten’s (Duke of Edinburgh) closest sister in age,
Princess Sophie, married Prince Christopher of Hesse, who was a member
of Himmler’s staff, enlisting as an “agent.”  Prince Christopher
would die in an aircraft accident in 1944, preceding by two years the
extremely suspicious death of Prince George, the Duke of Kent and
brother of the King, George VI – who also died in an aircraft “accident.”
The Duke of Kent died on 25th August 1942 aboard a Sunderland flying
boat belonging to 228 Squadron of Coastal Command that crashed into a
hill, called the Eagle’s Rock, near Berriedale, Caithness, Scotland.
The authors of the book “Double Standards” make a strong case that the
aircraft was sabotaged on the instructions of Churchill, in order to
avert the conclusion of a secret alliance agreed in principle between
Germany and England that was to be signed in Sweden by the Duke of Kent,
presumably on behalf of his brother, the King. The authors believe that
aboard the aircraft and travelling with the Duke was none other that
deputy fuehrer, Rudolf Hess.
Staying at Balmoral the night before the crash, according to one
biography of the Queen Mother, the Duke feasted on a last supper of
sorts. His dinner companion was Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. 
SNATCHING VICTORY FROM DEFEAT
It should come as no surprise to learn that the Grenadier Guards Major,
Peter Smith, is the 6th Baron Carrington more commonly known as Lord
Carrington, who in April 1985 was honoured by the Queen when he was made
a knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the oldest and most
prestigious British Order of chivalry that dates back almost 700 years.
As a member of the royal family bloodline, Lord Carrington’s illustrious
career has included a stint as chairman of the secretive and elite
Bildergers. Not least, he was a former President of the Pilgrim Society
that was founded in London in 1902 (and New York in 1903), as a dying
wish of Cecil Rhodes. Another member of this ultra secret society was
none other than the Duke of Kent, as was A J Drexel Biddle.
Founded in May 1954, the Bilderberg Conferences bring together the elite
of the world to seek a consensus on how global matters are to be
shaped. It is viewed with extreme suspicion by many who see it as
working outside of democratic control to foist on them a dictatorial
world order dedicated to the interests of the elite few.
Those instrumental in the founding of Bilderberg have included, General
Walter Bedell Smith, Allen Dulles and Antoine Pinay, the ultra right
French Prime Minister and Otto Wolff of the Cologne based firm Otto
Wolff A. G., whose father was a substantial contributor to Hitler.
Another was Sir Collin Gubbins, wartime head of the SOE who had
established and trained Auxilary Units to resist underground in the
event of a nazi invasion. These, in turn, were linked to the so-called
Army “Oxen Units” that engaged in sabotage. One such Oxen Unit was in
Berriedale at the time the Duke of Kent’s aircraft crashed. 
Attendees are numerous and very influential. These have included, for
example, David Rockefeller, Walter Boveri Jr, son of the founder of
Brown Boveri, Sir Eric Roll of Warburg’s London based merchant bank and
Dr. Herman Abs of I G Farben – to name just a few who are relevant to
this essay. The first Bilderberg chairman was Prince Bernhard of the
Netherlands, who remained chairing the meetings until 1976, when he
stood down following his disgrace for accepting bribes in the Lockheed
Of significance is the fact that the first Bilderberg meeting was held
ten years after the failed Operation Market Garden, in a hotel (named
the Bilderberg – hence the name of the group), that is located in
Oosterbeek, Holland, just a few kilometres from both Arnhem and Nijmegen
– and in the very middle of the fighting to take the Arnhem bridge.
Is it possible that Oosterbeck was chosen for the first meeting of
Bilderberg in order to secretly celebrate the success in getting the
wealth of nazi Germany to safety as planned by Bormann? Possibly. In
the first two years of its existence, four meetings were held, on a
semi-annual basis.  For 1954, meeting were held in May and again
in September. In 1955, they were in March and September. Thereafter,
meetings have been held just once annually in May. September 1954 was,
of course, the month of the failed – or betrayed – Operation Market Garden.
1954 is of significance for other reasons, too, for it was in 1954 that
the Allies finally agreed to return Western Germany to the status of a
sovereign nation and German companies were, at last, freed from Allied
control on 5th May 1955. The assets of Thyssen, Krupp and others that
had been secreted abroad could now be untangled and returned to once
again rebuild Germany – as foreseen by Bormann.  The treaty that
ended the occupation of West Germany was signed in Paris in October
The past is the future. Sadly.
 By “revolving” I mean to suggest that whoever wins an American
presidential election, US foreign policy remains fundamentally unchanged.
 It is here of considerable significance that it was following the
Versailles Treaty that many German industrialists, including the Thyssen
and Dornier family, first developed their financial techniques to cloak
ownership of their assets.

friends and agents to do the job for him." Biesemaat also says that no
crown jewels were recovered in Berlin but instead some "shares" of the
royal family were recovered, although the main objective was to secure
the fortune of the "Thyssen Bornemisza family" (private correspondence
with this writer).

From South America, where payment must be made with subtlety, the Bormann
organization has made a substantial contribution. 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. If their proposals are sound, they are even provided
with a specially dispensed venture capital fund. I spoke with one Jewish
businessmen in Hartford, Connecticut. He had arrived there quite unknown
several years before our conversation, but with Bormann money as his leverage.
Today he is more than a millionaire, a quiet leader in the community with a
certain share of his profits earmarked as always for his venture capital
benefactors. 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
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 these Jewish
leaders. He is residing in an Argentinian safe haven, protected by the most
efficient German infrastructure in history as well as by all those whose
prosperity depends on his well-being.
Please consider seriously the reason why these elite institutions are not discussed in the mainstream press despite the immense financial and political power they wield?
There are sick and evil occultists running the Western World. They are power mad lunatics like something from a kids cartoon with their fingers on the nuclear button! Armageddon is closer than you thought. Only God can save our souls from their clutches, at least that's my considered opinion - Tony
