This program completes the line of inquiry we undertook in FTR #’s 1146, 1147, 1148 and 1149. Most importantly, we bring the evolution of events and institutions up to the present. Listeners who digest the programs in the future should bear in mind that these programs were recorded during, and the immediate aftermath of, the 2020 GOP convention.
After reviewing information about Nixon confidante Bebe Rebozo and the links of his bank to the deadly Bormann network, we continue with the unpublished manuscript from which we read in our last program. The broadcast highlights interactions between the Nixon administration, Bebe Rebozo, a mysterious and allegedly organized-crime connected company called Resorts International, an even more mysterious subsidiary of Resorts International called the Paradise Island Bridge Company and the Dewey, Dulles, Nazi, William Casey milieu that is central to this discussion.
The Paradise Island Bridge Company’s directors are suggestive of a possible Bormann link: ” . . . . It did, however, name a number of German and Swiss investors, One of these, for example, was Dr. Heinz Rosterg of Lausanne, a former ‘principal stockholder’ and director of the Wintershall potash concern; Wintershall was one of the major subsidiaries of BASF, the largest single successor firm to I.G. Farben. . . . .”
The manuscript sets forth speculation about the possibility that Mary Carter Paint/Resorts International may have generated funds that greased the wheels for the release of many Nazi war criminals. ” . . . . Still unanswered is the question of whether the story of the Dewey-Allen Dulles interest in Resorts should have referred to funds, not from the CIA itself, but from its German-Swiss partners in the Paradise Island Bridge Company. Such a hypothesis might explain some of the many strange coincidences which surround the company’s controversial history. It might, for example, explain the ‘fortune in legal fees’ that Mary Carter Paint, on the advice of Thomas Dewey, paid to Allen Dulles’ longtime law partner David Peck. (48) The SS-OSS connection certainly had reason to be grateful to David Peck. It was on the basis of Peck’s recommendation, as chairman of a three-man advisory board to review all the Nuremberg sentences, that John J. McCloy commuted to time served the sentence of Skorzeny’s post-war employer, Baron Alfried Krupp, and eight of his colleagues, and also ordered Krupp’s property to be restored. (49) The release of Krupp and other industrialists fulfilled an earlier demand to McCloy from Hermann Abs, who himself narrowly escaped prosecution at Nuremberg. Abs was the first post-war chairman of BASF, the I.G. Farben successor company represented among the stockholders of the Paradise Island Bridge Company. (50) . . . .”
The author also engages in speculation about the relationship between Resorts International and Capital Cities Broadcasting. The latter is the company that bought out ABC in the mid 1980’s and whose largest stockholder was William Casey. ” . . . . Might not the OSS-SS connection also throw light on the unexplained interlock between James Crosby’s company Resorts International, tightly controlled by the related and doubly intermarried Crosby-Murphy families, and Capital Cities Broadcasting, the major investment of the CIA’s present director William Casey. (51) Casey would be the logical person to have established the original connection between the Crosby-Murphy families and their mysterious German-Swiss partners. For it was Casey who, in 1944-45, ‘was given overall operational control of [OSS] German projects,’ and ‘co-ordinated . . . the over 150 men’ whom OSS sent into Germany. (52) With Dulles, Wisner, and Forgan, Casey was also one of the OSS veterans who lobbied successfully for a CIA which could legitimately utilize the resources of the Gehlen Org. (53) . . .”
The “unexplained interlock” between Resorts International and Capital Cities is described by the author: ” . . . . James Crosby’s cousin and brother-in-law, Thomas S. Murphy, was in 1964, the Executive Vice-President and a director of Capital Cities, as well as a director of Mary Carter Paint. Lowell Thomas, a long-time radio broadcaster with intelligence connections, was a director of both companies. At the time, William Casey was an officer, director, and major stockholder of Capital Cities. . . .”
Trump kept a copy of this by his bedside for late-night reading.
After James Crosby’s “unexpected” death in April of 1986, Donald Trump–whose operations are bankrolled by Deutsche Bank–purchased the company. Following litigation with Merv Griffin, the assets were divided with the television personality. ” . . . . Real estate developer Donald Trump, who owned two Atlantic City casinos, beat out several other bidders to purchase a controlling stake in the company from Crosby’s family for $79 million in July 1987. Trump was appointed chairman of Resorts International, and said he would complete the Taj Mahal in about a year. . . . The two ultimately reached a settlement, which was executed in November 1988, with Griffin purchasing the company for $365 million, and Trump purchasing the Taj Mahal from the company for $273 million. . . .”
Program Highlights Include:
1.–Discussion of Capital Cities Broadcasting’s acquisition of ABC following the CIA’s filing of a “fairness doctrine” complaint against the company for their coverage of Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham and Wong. Ron Rewald alleged that he and the firm for which he worked fronted for CIA. (At the time William Casey was head of CIA and Capital Cities largest stockholder.)
2.–The fact that Thomas Dewey, two time GOP candidate for President, was one of the founders of Capital Cities. The genesis of the Nazi branch of the GOP was Dewey’s 1948 campaign.
3.–Review of William Casey’s career, including the positions he held in the Nixon administration and his involvement with the Black Eagle Trust, which evolved from the Golden Lily plunder acquired by Japan after World War II.
4.–Discussion of Attorney General William Barr’s background in the CIA, including his role in George H.W. Bush’s pardon of key players in the Iran-Contra scandal.
5.–Analysis of Barr’s father Donald Barr and his work for the OSS in World War II, which may have intersected with the machinations of Dulles, Donovan, Casey and the Nazi “Operation Sunrise” participants.
6.–Donald Barr’s hiring of college dropout Jeffrey Epstein to teach at the Dalton School.
7.–Donald Barr’s authorship of a science fiction novel–Space Relations–about a planet dominated by oligarchs and driven by sexual slavery.
8.–Review of a decisive stratagem of the Underground Reich, enunciated by Army officer Glenn Pinchback in a letter to New Orleans D.A. Jim Garrison. Pinchback wrote of a ” . . . . ‘Neo-Nazi plot to enslave America in the name of anti-Communism,’ . . .”
9.–In past programs, we have briefly noted that military and [ostensibly] civilian programs officially involved with “epidemic prevention” might conceal clandestine biological warfare applications designed to create epidemics. The official distinction between “offensive” and “defensive” biological warfare research is academic. In that context, one should note that the official title of Unit 731, the notorious Japanese biological warfare unit was “the Epidemic Prevention and Water Purification Department of the Kwantung Army.” Unit 731’s research was incorporated into the U.S. biological warfare program at the end of World War II.
10.–Noteworthy in that general context is the observation by Jonathan King (professor of molecular biology at MIT), that Pentagon research into the application of genetic engineering to biological warfare could be masked as vaccine research, which sounds “defensive.”
