(the Soviets spent 35 % of their GNP on their military, but they continued to receive loans, some at favourable interest rates). In effect, our private Banking Corporations printed currency, lent the money to our governments on high interest rates, but supplied it directly to the Soviets to fight us with….
Some mention of the Cold War is warranted. I spent a
considerable part of my best years in that, only to find out
afterwards that a deal of it was needless – the war was
inflated and made possible for so long by our Corporations –
and their CEOs have not been charged and tried for treason.
My first doubts began in 1985 before the Cold war was over, when
Raisa Gorbachev flashed around her [western bank] American Express
Gold card atCartier’s in London. I wonder what happened to the Trading
with the E nemy and Treason Acts in this case ? Who could make such a
decision ? It surely came to the notice of our Intelligence services. Who
made the decision to disregard it, and on what grounds ?
But the major question is: how did the Bolsheviks manage to grow into the Soviet empire, when we
opposed them first as free nations, then in a Cold War ?
Well, Standard Oil built an oil refinery for Russia in 1921, and its subsidiary sold
that oil in Europe. According to the newspaper. National Republic (Sept 1927
issue) Wall Street (Kuhn Loeb and Co) lent the Soviet Union $65 million. In 1928,
Rockefeller’s Chase National Bank began selling Soviet bonds in the US. Nineteen
oil refineries were built in the Soviet Union from 1917 to 1930, of which only one
contained units manufactured in the Soviet Union.
Between 1921 and 1925, $37 million worth of machinery and other
technology were delivered to the Soviets. In exchange, US
companies were given gold-mining rights (Amur River), and Lena
Goldfields Ltd (a British firm) built a modern mine nearVitimsk near
the river Lena. To cover this up, the leading British engineers were
imprisoned on trumped-up espionage charges. General Electric
carried out the GOELRO plan – the plan designed to electrify Russia
with the building of 100 power stations between 1920 and 1935.
They could manage to build only a very small number and the plan
was practically abandoned in 1922.
But between 1927 and 1932, US and British engineers built the Dneprogess power station, using Russian
slave labour, which produced 2.5 billion Kwh of electricity per year. GE later planned to produce a large
turbine-producing factory at Kharkov (over two times larger than the US GE plants).
This would have, in effect, made the
Soviets entirely independent as far as
turbines were concerned.
A US corporation (Clearing Macin
Corp.) designed and supplied
construction parts for the world’s
largest steelworks located at
Magnitogorsk, including the eight
largest ovens – a large 17knn long

boasted of, as if it were their design

Most of the 788 major factories built
in the Soviet Union in 1926 and
1927, were built with US aid.
During the ‘First Five Year Plan’,
(see ‘Western Technology and
Soviet Economic Development’,
Volume II), a total of 1500 industrial
companies were built, including an
aircraft factory, and new tractor and
car plants (see Soviet-Estonian
Encyclopaedia, 1973, p. 439) –
eighty US companies were
mobilised to build the tractor plants.
The tractor and tank factory (the
Soviets desired to build 50,00 tanks and
caterpillar tractors per year) were built
by an engineer named Calder from
– the construction was supervised in
the same way with US and UK
In J une 1944, Stalin admittBd to W. Averell Harriman (the US Ambassador, who
wrote this in his State Department report) that two thirds of Soviet heavy
industry had been built by US companies, adding that Germany, France, the
UK and Italy had built the rest.
Stalin was made ‘man of the year’ in Time Magazine, 1939 (and later in 1942).
When von Habsburg visited the White House, President Roosevelt told him
“Felix, I have met the devil. He was in Yalta and his name was Stalin”.
Time had made Hitler ‘man of the year’, the year before (1938) justifying the
decision with the advisory that ‘Hitler is a guarantee for world peace’..
Hermann Rauschning, Hitler’s personal Aide, recalls Hitler’s words in private
one day ‘The new man is living amongst us now! He is here. Isn’t that enough
for you? I will tell you a secret. I have seen the new man. He is intrepid and
cruel. I was afraid of him”
The facts get much worse. In ‘Under the Sign of the Scorpion; the Rise and Fall of
the Soviet Empire’ by Lina, there is some mention of a fellow named Bazata, who
was dispatched to assassinate General Patton.
It seems that General Patton had made enemies in high places, not least for his
practical stand against the Morgenthau plan – a plan proposed by American
Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau, J r.
– in effect the plan was to divide Germany into two states (nations) and to give away
east Prussia and Upper Silesia to Poland. Certainly the
NKVD had a very negative interest in Patton over that
issue, and they had managed to penetrate at least one
agent into the OSS.
The book by Stephen Skubik [WW2 army counter Intelligence] on the
assassination is out of print [and unusually, no used copies are available],
but in the book, ‘Los Crinnenes De Los ‘Buenos’, J oaquin Bochaca nnentions
that Douglas Bazata (a fornner OSS nnan) announced, in front of 450 invited
guests and high ranking, ex-nnennbers of the OSS, at the Hilton Hotel in
Washington, on 25th Septennber 1979:
“For divers political reasons, many extremely high-ranking persons hated
Patton. I know who killed him. Because I am the one who was hired to do it.
Ten thousand dollars. General William Donovan himself, director of the
O.S.S, entrusted me with the mission. I set up the accident. Since he didn’t
die in the accident, he was kept in isolation in the hospital, where he was
killed with an injection”. [Bazata had finally warned the General, after
several attempts, and Donovan sent another assassin].

FORD’S SECOND ADVENT IN RUSSIA
By Oleg Ryabtsev
“The Russian age of Ford is almost as long as the American one. The first Ford Motors Co. dealership
in Russia was opened back in 1907. However, the “honeymoon”, strange as it might seem,
began after the 1917 revolution .
The Soviet leadership spoke highly of the production line method, and, of course, the cheapness and
reliability of the Ford cars. With this came the desire to organize Ford-type production in the USSR
literally from scratch – without the preliminary training of workers and building roads. Even the first
head of the secret police, Felix Dzerzhinski, called on the participants in a congress of innovators and
shock workers “to take the road of Fordism”.
Ford’s popularity was largely due to the big supplies of cars and tractors to the Soviet Union. In the
mid- 1920s, Fordson tractors accounted for about four- fifths of all tractors being used in the USSR
(20,000 out of 24,000).
In 1929 the Ford Motor Co. signed a contract with the Soviet trade corporation Amtorg on the
production of the Ford-A cars in Russia and submitted a proposal to build new automobile plants in
Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod.
Alas, Henry Ford mistakenly believed in the honesty of Soviet “businessmen”. Almost immediately
after the completion of the construction of these plants, Amtorg began to oust the Ford Motor Co.
from the USSR. I n 1935 . in view of the Soviet side’s failure to fulfil its obligations. Ford broke off its
contract on cooperation .
The second advent of Ford in Russia was in 1990 when dealers of the company again appeared
in this country .”
Oh no it wasn’t
The Ford motor company built a gigantic trucic factory at Gorlcy (renamed Nizhny Novgorod),
Russia’s third largest city, in 1968.
Another truck factory (the world’s largest) was built by a US corporation at
Kama in the 1970s – the State Department classified these transactions and
activities as secret.
Somewhat ironically, former Soviet Defence Ministry official Avraham Shifrin, commented
” The (American) businessmen who built the Soviet Kama River trucic plant should be
shot as traitors”.
Although the nnilitary output fronn Gorki and ZIL was well known to
US intelligence and naturally therefore, to successive
adnninistrations, US aid for construction of the large nnilitary tnjck

political pressure, especially during the J ohnson and Nixon

Perhaps more red than we ever suspected.
The Chase Manhattan Bank provided $192 for the ZIL nnilitary car plant.
The similarity (in sonne noticeable ways) of the Soviet T54 to the US Christie tank is explained by the fact
that they were produced by the US Wheel Track Layer Corporation.
In Gorbachev’s era (’85-’91), twice as nnany Soviet tanks were
produced as the US produced in President Reagan’s era. In the
late 1980s, the Soviets had about three times as many tanks as
NATO.. Two chassis of the Christie M-1931 model medium tank
(MB) were purchased by the Soviet Union in 1932 from the Wheel
Track Layer Corporation. After further development work this
became not only the Soviet T-32 (the basic Soviet tank of World
War II), but also several other development models in the USSR.
The Soviet T-34 and the American M-3, both based on the
Christie, had the same 12-cylinderaero engine, a V-type Liberty of 338 horsepower.
A host of other corporations built plants in the Soviet
union over its 70 year, including DuPont and Krupp (the
An example of a typical Cold War transaction is this: The EEC
(European Economic Commission – a sortof tax-tariff related precursor
of the EL), designed to mentality condition Europeans to the idea of
surrendering national sovereignty) sold 100, 000 tons of butter, to the
Soviet Union. It cost the Soviets approx 45 pfennigs (100 pfennigs =1
Deutsch mark) per kilogram of the butter.
West Germans however were paying at that time, over 10
Deutschmarlcs per kilogram for butter (about 19 times more).
The French Billionaire Armand Hammer invested $6 billion in building Soviet chemical factories.
Eighty per cent of all goods delivered to the Soviet Union, were paid for on mainly western credit –
hard and stable currencies, and this generated the widespread Soviet street-level question:
“If they hate communism so much, why don’t they put an end to it” ?
Many question marks hang over the Soviet ability to put man into space first (if they ever did,
given the lethal van Allen radiation belt subsequently discovered to surround the earth) and
sputnik – impossible without western aid.
On the subject of aid, while Nicaragua was sent $294 million dollars in aid over three years , the Soviets
sent the Communist regime in Kabul , $300 million, each month . The final dismantling of the Soviet Union
is more interesting. By 1984, the Soviets owed western banks, $136.7 billion .. .(the Soviets spent 35 % of
