The amazing story of Britain's clandestine war on Hitler's agents...Names Like Ford, Bush, Rockefeller, Dulles and Kennedy

Yes, the above "American" famous names were NAZI's! Hitler could have never killed 20 million without there help, and it took Churchill with the help of Donald MacLaren, a Scottish Highland clan chief who was  charming, persuasive and physically imposing to stop their evil plots agianst the free world. Here is the rest of the story.......

 

image from i.dailymail.co.ukIn the summer of 1940, as British pilots fought desperately for the skies of southern England, the battle was joined on a very different front, thousands of miles from the coast of Kent.

It was fought through the political salons of Washington DC, the boardrooms and the smoky nightclubs of New York.

The protagonists had no uniform save that of a well-tailored suit; their weapons were native cunning, a plausible manner, and, from time to time, a concealed revolver.

This was the secret battle for America, ordered by Winston Churchill himself, and the fate of the free world hung upon it.

Today, we can reveal the untold story of how British agents went to war on Wall Street, a story pieced together from a remarkable collection of secret intelligence reports lying untouched for decades.

Uncovered by the MoS, the documents show how British agents took on Nazi sympathisers in the US with a masterful campaign of dirty tricks and disinformation, how they outmanoeuvred Hitler’s network of American allies and how they,  ultimately, destroyed the Third Reich’s powerful business and intelligence empire across the water.

Today, amid talk of special relationships and historic links, few remember that a sizeable part of American opinion was pro-German, even as Europe burned – or that many well-placed Americans were virulently anti-British.

There was a strongly held belief, particularly in corporate and financial life, that the Nazis were the best bulwark against the advance of Communism.

In fact, America and its vast industrial output were vital for the Nazi war effort. German companies ran extensive US subsidiaries and supplied the Third Reich with pharmaceuticals, chemicals and the latest technology, directly or through South American subsidiaries.

The Third Reich needed information, too. Long before the outbreak of war, German firms had placed networks of deep-penetration agents across the American business world.

There was open sympathy for the German cause and it extended to the very top of American society.

Sullivan & Cromwell, a powerful New York law firm, brokered numerous deals between American business and the German companies that helped bring Hitler to power.

Do You Know the Real History of ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’?

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — You know Dasher and Dancer and the rest of the gang. But do you recall, the most “Perfect Christmas Crowd-Bringer” of all?

That’s how executives at Montgomery Ward originally described Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, who first appeared in a 1939 book written by one of the company’s advertising copywriter and given free to children as a way to drive traffic to the stores.

Peter Carini holds a first edition of "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer", part of a special collection at Dartmouth College, on Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2011 in Hanover, N.H. (AP Photo/Toby Talbot)

Curious to know more about how Rudolph really went down in history? It’s all in the pages of a long-overlooked scrapbook compiled by the story’s author, Robert L. May, and housed at his alma mater, Dartmouth College.

May donated his hand-written first draft and illustrated mock-up to Dartmouth before his death at age 71 in 1976, and his family later added to what has become a large collection of Rudolph-related documents and merchandise, including a life-sized papier-mache reindeer that now stands among the stacks at the Rauner Special Collections Library.

But May‘s scrapbook about the book’s launch and success went unnoticed until last year, when Dartmouth archivist Peter Carini came across it while looking for something else.

“No one on staff currently knew we had it. I pulled it out and all the pieces started falling out. It was just a mess,” Carini said.

The scrapbook, which has since been restored and cataloged, includes May‘s list of possible names for his story’s title character – from Rodney and Rollo to Reginald and Romeo. There’s a map showing how many books went to each state and letters of praise from adults and children alike.    MORE>>>>>>>>

This is one of the most moving, and eye-watering stories I have ever put up on The Plain Truth. This lady waited 63 years for her husband to

image from s1.reutersmedia.netcome home. Although he told her to marry, if he were killed, she never did. She believed that the LORD would send him home and she waited upon the LORD. And waited and waited.... 63 years later he returned to her in a coffin, so she could bury him.  The remains of Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Gantt, who died on March 27, 1951 while serving in the South Pacific during the Korean War, returned to his wife yesterday. He was listed as missing in action/presumed dead for nearly 63 years.

“He told me that if anything happened to him, he wanted me to remarry, and I told him ‘no’,” Clara Gantt said. “So, here I am, still his wife and going to remain his wife till the Lord call me home.

“I am very, very proud of him. He was a wonderful husband, an understanding man,” she told TV reporters at the airport. “I always did love my husband, we was two of one kind, we loved each other. And that made our marriage complete.”

She is quite a lady, and my prayer is the God repays her loyalty, and allows us to see her faith as an inspiration. I am 58 years old. When I was born, she had gone 5 years without him already. When I went to school, she had been alone for ten years. When I graduated hight school, and then college, she had waited for 26 years!  I am nearing my autumn years, and to think that she has lived without the love of her life longer than I have breathed air is almost to much to take. If I only had her faith, patience and love....

Obama’s Half-Brother to Set the Record ‘Straight’ About President’s Memoir: ‘A Lot of That Stuff Barack Wrote Is Wrong’

Story by the Associated Press; curated by Jason Howerton

HONG KONG (AP) — President Barack Obama’s half brother is publishing an autobiography that details the domestic abuse that served as the theme for his earlier semiautobiographical novel, which featured an abusive parent patterned on their late father. In fact, Mark Obama Ndesandjo says he wants to “set the record straight” about some of the lies President Obama included in his bestselling 1995 memoir, “Dreams From My Father.”

Ndesandjo also recounts his sporadic but intense encounters with his brother over the years in “Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery.” The self-published book is to be released in February. In “Dreams From My Father,” Obama seeks to learn more about their father, a mostly absent figure, after learning of his death in a car crash in 1982 at age 46.

Obamas Half Brother to Set the Record Straight About Presidents Memoir

AP

Ndesandjo’s book comes four years after his novel, “Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love in the East.” As in his first book, Ndesandjo wanted to raise awareness of domestic abuse by using his family’s story, although he said in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday that the president’s relatives have not universally welcomed his airing of private matters in public. Ndesandjo spoke ahead of a news conference to launch the book in Guangzhou on Thursday.

When asked how he would describe his relationship with his brother, he said, “Right now it’s cold and I think part of the reason is because of my writing. My writing has alienated some people in my family.”  More>>>>>>>>>

Scientists: Yellowstone Supervolcano May Be Ready to Erupt

Image: Scientists: Yellowstone Supervolcano May Be Ready to Erupt

Monday, 16 Dec 2013 09:26 PM

 The hot molten rock beneath Yellowstone National Park is 2 ½ times larger than previously estimated, meaning the park's supervolcano has the potential to erupt with a force about 2,000 times the size of Mount St. Helens, according to a new study.


By measuring seismic waves from earthquakes, scientists were able to map the magma chamber underneath the Yellowstone caldera as 55 miles long, lead author Jamie Farrell of the University of Utah said Monday.

The chamber is 18 miles wide and runs at depths from 3 to 9 miles below the earth, he added.

That means there is enough volcanic material below the surface to match the largest of the supervolcano's three eruptions over the last 2.1 million years, Farrell said.

The largest blast — the volcano's first — was 2,000 times the size of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state. A similar one would spew large amounts of volcanic material in the atmosphere, where it would circle the earth, he said.

"It would be a global event," Farrell said. "There would be a lot of destruction and a lot of impacts around the globe."

The last Yellowstone eruption happened 640,000 years ago, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. For years, observers tracking earthquake swarms under Yellowstone have warned the caldera is overdue to erupt.

Farrell dismissed that notion, saying there isn't enough data to estimate the timing of the next eruption.

"We do believe there will be another eruption, we just don't know when," he said.

'Nicotine is GOOD for you'

Plain Truth Readers knew this fact 7 YEARS AGO!

Facts on Smoking You are Not Told, or Why George Burns Lived to 100!

 

Scientist David O'Reilly, who works for the tobacco industry, said nicotine makes your brain work better

Scientist David O'Reilly, who works for the tobacco industry, said nicotine makes your brain work better

 

 

 

A scientist employed by one of the biggest cigarette manufacturers today said nicotine is good for your health.

 

Group scientific director for British American Tobacco, which makes Benson & Hedges, Dunhill and Lucky Strikes, David O'Reilly has been branded 'irresponsible' and accused of telling just part of the story.

 

He told the Sunday Times Magazine smoking helps a person's brain work more effectively, adding: 'It helps with cognition, stimulation and relaxes.'

 

His controversial claim came just a week after New York University researchers warned smokers of ecigarettes could inhale more nicotine than those who smoke regular cigarettes.

 

Mr O'Reilly said likened taking a puff from an ecigarette to drinking a cup of coffee, as he claimed the practise was safe.

 

But the senior molecular biologist has come under fire from health experts, who have accused him of trying to help 'sell as many cigarettes as possible'.

 

Professor John Britton, chairman of the Royal College of Physicians tobacco advisory group and professor of epidemiology at the University of Nottingham, said one hit of nicotine can have positive effects on the brain.

China-Japan Spat Could Lead to World War III

 
Chris Carrington
Activist Post

As the row over the rocks that are claimed by not only Japan and China, but South Korea and Taiwan continue, a former UN Ambassador has warned that any conflict in the region could quickly become global.

Former Chinese Ambassador Sha Zukang said in a report in The China Times:
If China started a war with Japan, it would be much larger than both the Sino-Japanese War and World War II, said Sha. The United States and Japan should cooperate with China to maintain regional peace.
In the last few days Japan has set up its own air defense zone, and that has spurred South Korea to do the same. It’s the overlap of the air zones that could lead to further confrontation between the countries. The Korean zone comes into effect on December 15th.

Nelson Mandela: No Gandhi; No Martin Luther King; Not Even Close—A “Che Guevara” is more like it

Press Conference by President of African Natio...Press Conference by President of African National Congress of South Africa (Photo credit: United Nations Photo)

Henry David Thoreau is the backdrop: Civil Disobedience, the application. And just like Mandela, Che is a murderer, too (a post on this blog from waaaay back in 2005).

Did he ever read it, Thoreau's work? What does it matter? He chose to be a thug, inciting violence, organizing violence against innocents (like Obama, for instance). I've seen estimates as high as 20,000 for innocents killed by the UmKhonto we Sizwe arm of the African National Congress (ANC) that Mandela worked long and hard to organize in opposition to the status quo of peaceful resistance.

Did Gandhi and MLK get it all wrong?

"Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our being."Gandhi

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."Thomas Edison

Crushing cars and exams: Nation's youngest monster truck driver is 16-year-old girl with killer 2160 SAT score

While 16-year-old Rosalee Ramer's peers are just getting used to parallel parking and driving on the freeway, she's behind the wheels of a 10-ton truck - going over 30 foot jumps, crushing smaller cars and popping wheelies as the nation's youngest professional monster truck driver.

Rosalee, a native of Watsonville, California, has been driving in monster truck rallies for the past two years, signing up for more than 20 competitions a year in her truck named Detour with 'Princess' license plates.

'Just being in a truck that loud, feeling it under you, stepping on the throttle, it almost doesn't feel real. You feel like you're in a different world' Rosalee told the San Francisco Chronicle. ' You're taking something that weights 10,000 pounds and with a tiny touch of the throttle, you can just roast the tires.'

Competing in a sport dominating by men has had its downfalls, and Rosalee constantly meets people who don't understand why a teenage girl would be interested in monster trucks.

But in competition, her age and sex is somewhat of an advantage with her opponents.

'You can tell when they don't want "the little girl" to beat them out, so they try going for something they wouldn't normally do,' Rosalee said, 'and then they crash or break a wheel off.'

Rosalee started entering competitions at age 14, but crushed her first car - a Ford Taurus - when she was 13.

FBI Able "For Several Years" To Secretly Turn On Laptop Cameras

In a recent report by The Washington Post, it was revealed that the FBI has been able to secretly activate a target’s laptop camera “without triggering the light that lets users know it is recording” for several years.

While this may be surprising to some, it really shouldn’t be. Previous reports revealed that the FBI employs hackers to create software to remotely activate the microphones on laptops and cell phones as well as cameras. The U.S. government has also become the world’s largest buyer of malware. The NSA also recommended physically removing the webcam from Apple laptops for security reasons.

In August, the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI has developed hacking tools like this for over a decade, though they rarely are discussed publicly.

Will Jews be allowed to pray on Temple Mount?

Believe or not not, the Bible says so - and it will be a POPE that leads the charge!

 

By and Ruth Eglash, Published: December 2 E-mail the writer

 

JERUSALEM — A small but growing movement by Jewish activists demanding the right to pray at the site of their destroyed temple, in the heart of this disputed capital’s Old City, is creating a potentially explosive clash with the Muslim world, which considers the spot holy and bans Jews from public worship there.

Each week, hundreds of Jews ascend the creaky wooden ramp built above the Western Wall and enter what is often called the most contested real estate on Earth. Many then embark upon a game of hide-and-seek with their police escorts — whispering forbidden prayers while pretending to talk into cellphones, and getting in quick but banned bows by dropping coins and then bending to pick them up.

How Small Farms are Saving Olive Oil

Nestled against the sun-drenched slopes of the Veneto region of northern Italy exists a group of small, organic growers committed to preserving groves of ancient Roman olives.  While olive oil production is changing to meet a new, industrialized era that dismisses heirloom varieties and favors mechanized harvests, these growers whose land hovers between 2 and 6  acres remain committed to the art and tradition of growing ancient varieties of olive – Favarol, Grignano and Nostrano – varieties that might fall to extinction were it not for their passionate commitment and the support  of Jovial Foods, a company committed to reviving near-lost, ancient varieties of whole foods and making them available to the public.

Olive Harvest

Why Heirloom Olives Deserve Preservation

These ancient varieties, particularly Favarol, typically require more labor-intensive cultivation yet can yield variable production from year to year, and as the worldwide demand for olive oil increases, olive oil producers find themselves cutting down these ancient groves of heirloom varietals for a handful of modern varieties that require less labor, lend themselves more easily to mechanized harvests, and produce prolifically each year.  As a result, groves of ancient varieties are slowly disappearing from the Italian landscape.

Like heirloom varieties of vegetables, these ancient olives each carry with them a distinctive value – flavor, resistance to disease.  And if they disappear, those attributes will also disappear. In choosing to preserve these foods and make their distinctive olive oil available to the public, the farming and care of these ancient varieties becomes economically sustainable for small growers, and helps to preserve the olives’ distinct culinary and cultural heritage.

Heirloom Olives and Hand Harvesting Make Exquisite Olive Oil

FavarolGrignano and Nostrano each offer distinct flavors, and, when blended together, create an exceptional olive oil with a flavor that is at once more complex and and yet milder than run-of-the-mill, store-bought oils.  The Nostrano olive presents a light, fruity flavor with a faint almond-like finish, while Grignano offers a distinct, but not overpowering, fruitiness with a lemony finish.  Together the three olives produce a remarkable blend that is mild, but complex with a distinct finish.

Further, heirloom olives benefit from time-honored production methods: hand selection and true cold-pressing which keep the oil’s acidity low, and its array of phytonutrients and antioxidants high.

Baychimo - The Arctic Ghost Ship

SS Baychimo was a steel-hulled 1,322 ton cargo steamer built in 1914 in Sweden and owned by the Hudson's Bay Company, used to trade provisions for pelts in Inuit settlements along the Victoria Island coast of the Northwest Territories of Canada. She became a notable ghost ship along the Alaska coast, being abandoned in 1931 and seen numerous times since then until her last sighting in 1969.

Sightings

  • A few days after the Baychimo had disappeared on 24 November 1931, the ship was found 45 mi (72 km) south of where she was lost, but was again ice-packed.
  • After several months, she was spotted again but about 300 mi (480 km) to the east.
  • In March of the following year, she was seen floating peacefully near the shore by Leslie Melvin, a man traveling to Nome with his dog sled team.
  • A few months after that, she was seen by a company of prospectors.
  • March 1933, she was found by a group of Eskimos who boarded her and were trapped aboard for 10 days by a freak storm.
  • August 1933, the Hudson's Bay Company heard she was still afloat, but was too far a-sea to salvage.[2]
  • July 1934, she was boarded by a group of explorers on a schooner.
  • September 1935, she was seen off the Alaskan coast.
  • November 1939, she was boarded by Captain Hugh Polson, wishing to salvage her, but the creeping ice floes intervened and the captain had to abandon her.
  • After 1939, she was seen floating alone and without crew numerous times, but had always eluded capture.
  • March 1962, she was seen sailing along the Beaufort Sea coast by a group of Inuit.
  • She was found frozen in an ice pack in 1969, 38 years after she was abandoned. This is the last recorded sighting of the Baychimo.
  • In 2006, the Alaskan government began work on a project to solve the mystery of "the Ghost Ship of the Arctic" and locate the Baychimo, whether still afloat or on the ocean floor. She has not been found yet.

Back in October, The Daily Sheeple reported that a court of appeals was going to force a 10-year-old Amish girl from Ohio to take chemotherapy treatments for her leukemia after her family opted to seek alternative treatments.

Now that family has taken the girl and fled the country.

The parents initially fought the treatments because they were making their little girl, Sarah Hershberger, severely ill, but the hospital decided to take the parents to court over their decision to look for natural cancer cures outside the Big Pharma model. Even though a juvenile judge twice ruled to uphold the parents’ rights, Akron Children’s Hospital took the case to an appeals court which overturned the previous rulings.

Were Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker, 40, and his friend pulling stunts in their high-powered Porsche GT?

 Scorched tire marks and rubber 'doughnuts' found at scene of accident that killed them both

ff

NEW Actor Paul Walker, best known for his role in the Fast & Furious action movies, has died after his close friend Roger Rodas (both pictured center) lost control of a Porsche GT (top right) which smashed into a pole and a tree. The high-powered super-car burst into flames (bottom right) after it crashed in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles, at 3.30pm on Saturday. Walker, 40, who was in five of the six films about illegal street racing and heists, had been at an event for his charity Reach Out Worldwide before deciding to take the car out for a drive with his friend. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that speed was a factor in the crash. Up and down the road near the crash site were burned rubber and doughnut marks as though someone had smoked their tires in figure 8 patterns.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that speed was a factor in the crash.

Up and down the road near the crash site were burned rubber and doughnut marks as though someone smoked their tires in figure 8 patterns.

‘I don't know if the marks in the road are related to the crash,’ said Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Brian Allen.

The wreck took place about 3:30 p.m., about 300 yards from the office park where the event was held. The speed limit there is 45 mph.

Deputies arrived at the scene to find a vehicle on fire, he said.

Once fire crews put the flames out, they found two occupants, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.

By Saturday evening, all that remained was the burnt mangled metal of the red car and a light pole that had been knocked down.

The county coroner said that, given the condition of the bodies, it will take some time to definitively identify them.

Guests rushed to put out the flames with fire extinguishers but the fireball had already engulfed the car. 

The driver of the car has been identified as former race car driver Roger Rodas, 38, who was also Walker's financial adviser.

The pair were friends and had been racing for several years before they began collaborating on Walker's finances.

Rodas had helped Walker establish his Reach Out Worldwide charity, after creating his own foundation to support widows and orphans in his native El Salvador.

Rodas was also the CEO of Always Evolving, the car customization shop where Saturday's charity event had been taking place.
