Zgram - Where Truth is Destiny: Now more than ever!
November 2, 2003
Good Morning from the Zundelsite:
This ZGram Prisoner of Conscience Letter will astonish some, animate
others, and infuriate many. However, Ernst Zundel calls a spade a
spade, as he has always done. He calls things as he sees them - and,
for the most part, earlier than most.
Below, you get the Zundel Take on The Terminator:
One of the most important political events in recent decades in
America has been the election of Arnold Schwarzenegger. This typical
rags-to-riches "American phenomenon" is like a political weather
The Germans trust a weather vane - a rooster in gold leaf that sits
on top of the highest church steeple, glistening in the sun. It
indicates what kind of weather is coming.
A weather vane is an often-used metaphor in political writing,
[depicting an] analysis of trends and forecasting the future
direction of events, developments etc. The weather vane, for
instance, [signaled a political change] in Europe when the Americans,
egged on by Israel's Fifth Column, agitated for war against Iraq, and
the Europeans went into a different, actually almost opposite
Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger, son of an SS man, will be
California's next governor. Arnold [turned into] one of the most
dedicated body builders because he had good role models, even having
spoken well of Hitler in his younger days - well enough that the ADL
and the Wiesenthal Centers' ever-vigilant rabbis took note of it.
They opened up a dirt file on Arnold in which they recorded such
episodes as "groping" and "cavorting with groupies", for in the
body-building circles a certain kind of female is to be found as a
camp follower, much like around rock bands and rock stars. Arnold's
future enemies took note of that - 25 years ago!
That in itself is a very interesting commentary and also an important
insight into how these people work. They find potential gentile
leaders rivals to their power - considering them threats long before
the individual himself realizes that he has potential for leadership.
It certainly happened to me!
Arnold was a physical fitness buff - one could call him a devotee or
even a fanatic. There was no physical fitness training in Austria or
Germany at the time he grew up because that would have been suspect
of being "neo-Nazi". There were also not yet the modern gyms or
health clubs, which in America and Canada were started in the
seventies. I was fully alert to these developments and followed the
trends closely. I did hear of Schwarzenegger decades ago!
That Arnold the well-built "superman" would have his share of female
conquests, one-night stands and wild flings as a young body builder
is a foregone conclusion. In the old, more puritan America, it could
have proved a political liability. That's why the material was in
the Jewish dirt files. After Clinton's dalliance with Monica
Lewinsky in the White House Oval office - cigar, blue dress and all -
Arnold's capers were tame, boys' locker room stuff.
You bet his father would have had many discussions with his strapping
son as they were having lunch or supper back in his boyhood in
Austria, of what life had been like under National Socialism, in the
SS, on the Eastern Front etc. I could almost recreate for you the
script, for I have spoken to, visited and reminisced with many SS
men. Some were French, Division Charlemagne, Luxenbourg'ish,
Latvian, Dutch and Estonian, Rumanian and Hungarian, Wallonian like
Leon Degrelle or Flamish like Andre von Hecke - and, of course,
German. Not one SS man I met was stupid! Not one of them was fooled
- in other words, "re-educated"! They all had their instincts
preserved and led productive, useful lives. Not a single SS man I
ever met was a loser! Not one!
You can be certain that an Austrian SS man, a war veteran, would have
been friends with other SS men and Wehrmacht veterans, and you can be
equally sure that they would socialize. You can bet that a young,
inquisitive [boy] would soak in their warrior talk, tales of heroic
exploits, as the cigarette smoke filled the room, the beer flowed
freely, and the talk grew more boisterous. I would not be surprised
if at the end of the evening, or after Sunday dinner, when they would
bring their wives and children along, there would not be a fellow
with an accordion. They would have a sing-along, and the old war
songs, including "Die Fahne hoch", the anthem of the national
socialist movement, would be sung with joy and gusto.
As I have myself been told and experienced it after dozens of
meetings, talks, demonstrations in my later years with these
Wehrmacht or SS veterans, there was a magical sense of communion and
comradeship that was infectious and electrifying to all present.
They became united by the music sung from memory, all saying and
singing the same words and tunes. They did not have to give speeches
or hand out flyers or handbills. They had lived and breathed this
kind of life in wartime when feelings were heightened and impressions
deep because all of them knew that they better live and enjoy life,
comradeship and community to the absolute fullest - because today,
this moment counted. Tomorrow they might well be dead.
Only a generation who lived through and experienced war can
comprehend this sense of total belonging, this being enveloped in the
cocoon of one's own ethic community, one's folk community. We, the
descendents of those men and women in the postwar era lived and
absorbed that feeling organically. Those who were born into families
of higher officials, bureaucrats, or even officers of the old system
learned more, and things were made clearer to them than to the sons
of simple peasants and lumberjacks like myself. I had to come to
Canada and America and absorb the higher principles [of folkish
cohesion] through book learning that others learned at their father's
knees. It is important for us to understand this Schwarzenegger
It is interesting that, once again, the Jewish side knows this and
has always known this phenomenon, not only about Schwarzenegger but
other Germans and Austrians of the "transition generation", for we
are the organic, unbroken genetic link to the past - our people's
past since the dawn of time. That's why the Jewish side made that
series of interviews with the "Children of Famous Nazis." What they
did not mention, of course, was that many of these children's fathers
were killed by the Allies AFTER the war, and thus those children
could not learn by osmosis. They merely regurgitated what they had
learned in Allied Occupation schools. [They also forgot to mention
that] some very famous "Nazi children" did not appear in the
disgusting series because they obviously refused to denounce their
famous fathers [by refusing to become] useful tools for Jewish
Say what you will about our adversaries, they have one fine instinct
and radar for potential trouble and possess those organizational
structures in place to track and compromise an individual and remove
an opponent - if need be, destroy him by scandal, maim, injure or
cripple him by a well-aimed bullet to the spine as they did to
Alabama Governor Wallace, or magically have the plane he flies in
fall out of the sky, whether it's a Korean airliner over Stockholm or
a private plane on a campaign trail in America.
That young Arnold would be attracted to America by reading all these
glossy muscle-builder magazines was a foregone conclusion. That he
would come to America and end up in California was as predictable as
the "amen" after a prayer in Church on Sunday.
Enter the Kennedy-Shriver connection. As Arnold's fame spread with
his successful movie career and he developed a loyal following of
movie fans, becoming very wealthy in the process, other forces who
matter in America took notice, for certain dynasties in American
power elite circles are much like European and ancient aristocratic
circles and dynasties. They try to choose partners and arrange
marriages for their offspring by putting the right young people in
their paths at the opportune times for nature to take its course.
The Kennedy-Shriver clans are well-known for this practice. The
marriage of Senator Jack Kennedy to the lovely, graceful Jacqueline
Bouvier, connected to the aristocratic Radziwills, was no fortunate
accident - it was by design, and I would bet money on it: neither
was the encounter between Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger an
accident of fate or mere coincidence. Suffice it to say that the
handsome and glamorous as well as, by then, well-to-do Arnold
Schwarzenegger, the Austrian immigrant, was soon a frequent guest at
the Kennedy-Shriver hangouts and family gatherings.
Once Arnold was married and taken into the fold by the
Kennedy-Shrivers, a new round of "Table Talks", [augmented] with even
more intimate and, therefore, more memorable talks about Kennedy
secrets, which few outsiders will ever know about, would have taken
place in Arnold's life. One of my mentors and, in his day,
well-connected and influential Jewish
businessman-turned-Catholic-convert, Benjamin Freedman, told me some
of these Kennedy secrets. Freedman knew these secrets, for he too
was often a house guest of the elder Kennedy, the US Ambassador to
England in the late '30s and early '40s.
Freedman knew Joseph Kennedy, because he had at one time been the
secretary of Henry Morgenthau Sr., an influential power broker during
the Wilson era, 1914-1918. Freedman told me that he was present as
a typist, writer and courier between the Wilson government and
Bernard Baruch, also known as the uncrowned King of the Jews, in
Washington, D.C. and New York City when the negotiations between
Wilson, Baruch and British-Jewish circles took place to bring
America into the First World War on the side of England -
[negotiations that] ended up in the infamous Balfour Declaration, the
direct and indirect cause of so much bloodshed and upheaval in the
last century. Freedman even told me the hotel room number and the
stationary this stuff was written on by him in New York and
Bernard Baruch was prominent; in fact he was the de facto leader of
the US negotiators in Versailles after the war was over during those
disastrous-for-the-Europeans and especially the Germans and their new
Republican government and its delegation negotiations in Versailles.
You can be sure that Benjamin Freedman, who did share that with me
[these details] in an interview in a New York City Park Avenue
apartment with a tape recorder running, would also have brought up
these topics at the dinner table with Ambassador Kennedy at
Hyannisport, or sitting at the fireplace politely sipping a brandy!
Benjamin Freedman was the first person, to my knowledge, to expose
the conversion of the Khazar Empire of King Bulan in the year 800 or
820 after Christ in a book called "Facts are Facts", a copy of which
he gave me personally. Since Freedman was a millionaire, he could
afford to travel widely. He spent considerable time at the Vatican
Library after his conversion, to research not only the Khazar
Conversion, but also the outbreak, origins and, above all, the
reasons why the First World War was brought about, and why Germany
had to be and was ultimately defeated by the Allied Powers.
[Incidentally], Freedman also investigated the origins of the words
"Jew", "Jewish" etc. in the teachings of the Christian religion,
especially when these words were introduced to Christendom at large.
Freedman was a very lucid thinker who had a rare talent to impart
knowledge. I was introduced to him - I believe it was in 1969 - by
the late Rabbi Elmer Berger of the American Council for Judaism,
whose president or leading figure he was. Both Rabbi Berger and
Benjamin Freedman lived to a ripe old age - well into the 80s for
Berger. Mr. Freedman died in his middle 90s in full control of his
faculties. He was one of the few people who can truly be called
"saintly." Rabbi Berger, too, was gentle and soft-spoken, courteous
and lucid in his arguments. He also gave me a number of the American
Council for Judaism magazines called "Issues", in which he had
published some remarkable, revelatory articles about the Jewish
permeation of Communism in Soviet Russia in the 1960s, by none other
than Toronto's famous conservative columnist, Peter Worthington.
Worthington was then, or had been at least for many years, the
European and later the Moscow correspondent for the now-defunct
"Toronto Telegram". Worthington did not realize the deep connection
the owners of the "Telegram" had with the Jewish community in Canada
when they refused to publish his Jewish/Communist-Connection
articles. Somehow Rabbi Berger ended up publishing several of them
in his magazine "Issues". Berger gave me these articles, along with
a suggestion that I should try to meet with and talk to Peter
Worthington for more information, which I did. I believe
Worthington's daughter went on to marry the son of Barbara Frum who
interviewed me several times at length for the CBC "As It Happens"
programs - and that is the David Frum who wrote President Bush's
famous "Axis of Evil" speech after the 9/11 attacks! It's a small
I am telling you all this from memory to give you some historical
context and to show you that my contacts and sources were, and are,
extensive, reach into high echelons, and can be verified.
Meanwhile, Benjamin Freedman continued as a guest of the Kennedys,
and Senator Kennedy would have lunch with him. Most of the times he
would come to New York, usually alone. The topic was usually Jewish
Power. The close-knit Kennedy clan, being outgoing Irish Catholics,
would be voluble and jovial, one might assume, in private gatherings.
Ambassador Kennedy was what is called in modern parlance "clued in" -
he knew what intrigues went on behind the scenes in Washington, who
was who, who had the real power, who was blackmailing whom with the
latest liaisons, who had been and could be bribed and do favors.
For instance, the well-known American political personality, one-time
Navy Secretary James Forrestal, published [a telling vignette about
Ambassador Kennedy] in his book, "The Forrestal Diaries":
"I had lunch today with Ambassador Joseph Kennedy [in London] who
confided to me Chamberlain had said that had it not been for the
constant needling from Washington and the pressure of World Jewry,
England would not have gone to war" - [Quoted from memory]
After Joseph Kennedy Sr. was unceremoniously recalled - some call it
dumped - from London for giving Roosevelt's administration such
reports they did not want to hear, the elder Kennedy would smart from
this [snub] for the rest of his life, and [one assumes] that his sons
would be told about that event, one of the most dramatic and also
publicly humiliating events in the Kennedy history. You can equally
bet that the subject came up, once Arnold was taken into the fold and
the Kennedys felt comfortable with him around. That's how families
operate - the rich and famous are no different from poor families in
this respect. That's what binds and propels dynasties. Healthy
family units are like a living organism.
There is this shallow, tabloid-driven suggestion that there is a
"Kennedy Curse" on the Kennedys because of the disasters and sorrows
which have befallen that family. No doubt their outgoing and
extremely physical-fitness and competitive sports-enjoying lifestyles
have been responsible for deadly skiing accidents and even possibly
plane crashes. But people can be absolutely sure that there were
forces at work in America's behind the scenes of ruling power elites
who, realizing the elder Kennedy's political insights, and knowledge
where many of the skeletons were buried thanks to people like
Benjamin Freedman and Rabbi Berger, these forces felt not only uneasy
but threatened by the goals of that dynasty.
The Kennedy clan had enough independent wealth and their own networks
of information and connections. They did pose a threat to those who
really pull the strings and often call the shots in the corridors of
power. These are hardly ever people who are "elected". [These
invisible powers] elect people to control them by various means, like
dirt files and campaign contributions, media influence etc. They are
not interested in cheap titles or shingles on the door in a corridor
in the Senate or Congress. Real Power lies outside these places.
The Senate and Congress are, of course, important as the stepping
stones into executive positions and convenient launching pads for men
with presidential ambitions, as are governorships and ranks in the
Army, along with war hero status. But the controllers of America's
destiny must have had many a sleepless night as they saw the elder
Kennedy move his self-reliant, personal-wealth-empowered children
into positions where they could cause grief to the plans and
aspirations of those other forces and power centers already wielding
decisive power. Their worst fears were confirmed when the young,
handsome and wildly popular John F. Kennedy was elected president,
having beating their stalking horse, the consummate Texas politician,
Lyndon Baines Johnson, in the primaries - who, it was clear from many
indications [such as] news articles, was the choice of the
military-industrial complex and the people associated with it.
Joseph Kennedy and his network of friends and backers knew that they,
the Christian Irish Catholics, had an uphill battle on their hands,
and that however handsome and charismatic the Kennedys were, their
victory was far from certain. They needed Johnson's political
machine in the Southern states - and that is how Lyndon Johnson
became vice-president, for no other reason. It was a marriage of
convenience, at best. That was clear to most pundits with knowledge
of American political reality of the 1960s. No love was lost between
the Kennedy camp and the Johnson camp.
When John Kennedy picked his brother Bobby Kennedy as Attorney
General of the US, with Teddy waiting in the wings, it became even
more clear that the Kennedy ascendancy to power was not a change of
administration but a "regime change", to use a modern neo-con phrase.
Investigations began [almost immediately] by the new Attorney General
into the activities of the mob, which would sooner or later threaten
Johnson or at least men who were part of his power base. More shock
waves of seismic proportions were causing serious tremors and were
registering on America's political Richter Scale.
Contrary to all the rumors you may have heard since the assassination
of the young president, he was no friend of Israel, and even less a
supporter of their aggressive military ambitions in the Middle East.
He stated that over and over again to his father's and family friend,
Benjamin Freedman. Yet he was a politician, and he ended up making
compromises, such as during the famous "Hawk Missiles for Israel"
controversy. Kennedy did not believe the Israelis needed them as a
defense against Egypt and told them so - but in the end, worn down by
media and lobby groups, he gave in. Israel promptly stationed these
missiles in the Negev Desert to protect their nuclear armament center
at Dimona - whereas American Intelligence services had told Kennedy
the missiles were destined for Dimona.
A furious Kennedy denied any more high tech or other military
hardware to Israel, which in turn angered domestic Jewish and Israeli
power circles. You can be certain that the elder Kennedy and his son,
the US Attorney General, investigated and found out who murdered JFK.
I am certain that one day papers will be released that the Kennedys
knew within months who had organized the conspiracy to kill the
JFK was assassinated on Lyndon Johnson's home turf, and the sluice
gates of weaponry and good will toward Israel by Johnson were opened
wide. Now Israel received American manna from heaven! The biggest
indicator of this dramatic change can be seen in the handling of the
USS Liberty crisis, an electronic surveillance ship clearly flying
the US flag. It was attacked by Israeli jets and ships. The US Navy
dispatched aircraft-carrier-launched jets to intercept the Israelis,
but these jets were recalled on direct orders from the White House
before arriving at the USS Liberty to protect it.
President Kennedy's brother, Bobby, took steps to reclaim his
brother's legacy and had every chance of becoming President, partly
on a sympathy vote. Those responsible knew that, with Bobby in the
White House as President, their days would be numbered and that the
history of the world would take a different direction, because the
Kennedys, according to what Freedman told me, wanted to contain the
Israelis and end the war in Vietnam. Bobby Kennedy drew huge crowds
of anti-Vietnam [protestors] already. America's military/industrial
complex oligarchy were standing to lose hundreds of billions of
dollars in funding and military spending in future years to be made
on a no-win war in Asia and by arming Israel to the teeth as their
pit bull [to be] unleashed against anyone threatening US oil
supplies. He was struck down by an assassin's bullet as well.
Teddy Kennedy was quickly neutralized by sordid sex and the death at
Chappaquittick scandal, and the Kennedy challenge to the Powers
behind the Power was derailed.
Arnold Schwarzenegger would have been privy to this background
information, and there are indications early on that Arnold and Maria
were figures on the chess board of the Kennedy-Shriver players. The
first signs came when Arnold paid protection money to the keepers of
the dirt file on him. He apologized for his father being in the SS -
ludicrous, of course, but it's the Rite-of-Passage, the Kosher Seal
of Approval, such as the rabbis give in America to supermarket
products like Saran Wrap or Aluminum Foil. Arnold would not have
needed a stamp of approval, had he continued to be a body builder or
a mere "Terminator" actor. He only needed it for a public role -
like NOW. A political career.
Somebody guided him well! He was carefully groomed, did all the
right things, said all the right words, endorsed all the right
liberal, typically "hip" California causes and issues. He proclaimed
himself a Republican. His wife is a long-time Democrat like all the
Kennedys. What emerged is a bipartisan couple appealing to Democrats
and Republicans [alike].
In fact, 31% of the people who voted for Arnold Schwarzenegger were
Democrats - an amazing percentage! He won 52% of the White vote, 17%
of the Black vote, 31% of the Hispanic vote - with an Hispanic
running! He was one candidate out of 135 candidates running - and
although no professional politician with relatively little
organization, he pulled fully 49% of the votes cast in what can only
be termed a Blitzkrieg - a lightning war campaign which would have
made his SS man father proud - and undoubtedly sent cold shivers up
and down the spines of the rabbis at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, not
to mention the sinister, no-sense-of-humor guys, the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai Brith.
Overlooked in the Arnold "The Terminator" Schwarzenegger mania was
the result of another very important American poll published the very
week (Newsweek, 10-28-03, p 29) of Arnold's landslide victory. Only
27% of Americans said they trusted their government "to do what's
right". and an absolutely astonishing 70% agreed that the political
system is so controlled by special interest groups and by
partisanship that it cannot respond to the country's real needs. One
might call these statistics pre-revolutionary.
One thing almost lost in all this excitement is the fact that a
sitting, reigning governor of one of the most important states of
America has been deposed. A professional politician was trounced by
a rank amateur in an act almost amounting to regicide - the killing
of a king!
President Bush's ratings are plummeting, while Arnold's are rising.
The Terminator? These two words alone should send goose bumps all
over the bodies of the power elite, for Arnold Schwarzenegger could
well terminate the old order of things in a moribund America.
May "The Force" be with him. I hope and pray that he is being
well-guarded, that no "Kennedy Curse" will befall him - for those who
want to retain their power play for keeps. They don't curse their
enemies. They have terminated more than one Kennedy before Arnold.
Exciting and scary times are upon us. The struggle for the heart,
mind but especially the soul of what is still good and decent in
America has started with the "kid from Austria" - the European SS
