Continuing to present the extraordinary research of the late Antony Sutton—

Today’s Sutton excerpt comes from his 1986 book, The Best Enemy Money Can Buy.

As usual, the detail is shocking. So are the names of the men.

The question is why: why are these men doing this?

Are they bankrolling and supplying both sides of a war for the money? Is because they want to make both sides equal, in hopes that a standoff will avert a global catastrophe?

My position is clear. I’ve stated it before.

When you can fund and supply two enemies, you’re already thinking about the aftermath, when the conflict will diminish or end. You’re planning to build an organization that will “manage the peace.”

That organization will have to be large. Very large. Which is exactly what you want. It will take on the shape of something like global governance—as much governance as you can create and impose.

Which is really what you wanted all along.

Which was why you funded and supplied both sides in the first place.

Which is why you’re called Globalists.

(And I’m not just talking about the United Nations. That’s merely one piece of a much larger “management” structure.)

OK. Now here is the Sutton excerpt:

“Although the military output from [Soviet] Gorki and ZIL was well known to U.S. intelligence and therefore to successive administrations, American aid for construction of even large military truck plants was approved in the 1960s and 1970s.”

“Under intense political pressure from the deaf mute blindmen, U.S. politicians, particularly in the Johnson and Nixon administrations under the prodding of Henry Kissinger (a long-time employee of the Rockefeller family), allowed the Togliatti (Volgograd) and Kama River plants to be built.”

“The Volgograd automobile plant, built between 1968 and 1971, has a capacity of 600,000 vehicles per year, three times more than the Ford-built Gorki plant, which up to 1968 had been the largest auto plant in the USSR.”

“Although Volgograd is described in Western literature as the ‘Togliatti plant’ or the ‘Fiat-Soviet auto plant,’ and does indeed produce a version of the Fiat-124 sedan, the core of the technology is American. Three-quarters of the equipment, including the key transfer lines and automatics, came from the United States. It is truly extraordinary that a plant with known military potential could have been equipped from the United States in the middle of the Vietnamese War, a war in which the North Vietnamese received 80 percent of their supplies from the Soviet Union.”

“The construction contract, awarded to Fiat S.p.A., a firm closely associated with Chase Manhattan Bank, included an engineering fee of $65 million. The agreement between Fiat and the Soviet government included:”

“The supply of drawing and engineering data for two automobile models, substantially similar to the Fiat types of current production, but with the modifications required by the particular climatic and road conditions of the country; the supply of a complete manufacturing plant project, with the definition of the machine tools, toolings, control apparatus, etc.; the supply of the necessary know-how, personnel training, plant start-up assistance, and other similar services.”

“All key machine tools and transfer lines came from the United States. While the tooling and fixtures were designed by Fiat, over $50 million worth of the key special equipment came from U.S. suppliers. This included:

1. Foundry machines and heat-treating equipment, mainly flask and core molding machines to produce cast iron and aluminum parts and continuous heat-treating furnaces.

2. Transfer lines for engine parts, including four lines for pistons, lathes, and grinding machines for engine crank-shafts, and boring and honing machines for cylinder linings and shaft housings.

3. Transfer lines and machines for other components, including transfer lines for machining of differential carriers and housing, automatic lathes, machine tools for production of gears, transmission sliding sleeves, splined shafts, and hubs.

4. Machines for body parts, including body panel presses, sheet straighteners, parts for painting installations, and upholstery processing equipment.

5. Materials-handling, maintenance, and inspection equipment consisting of overhead twin-rail Webb-type conveyors, assembly and storage lines, special tool ‘sharpeners for automatic machines, and inspection devices.”

“Some equipment was on the U.S. Export Control and Co-Corn lists as strategic, but this proved no setback to the Johnson Administration: the restrictions were arbitrarily abandoned. Leading U.S. machine-tool firms participated in supplying the equipment: TRW, Inc. of Cleveland supplied steering linkages; U.S. Industries, Inc. supplied a “major portion” of the presses; Gleason Works of Rochester, New York (well known as a Gorki supplier) supplied gear-cutting and heat-treating equipment; New Britain Machine Company supplied automatic lathes. Other equipment was supplied by U.S. subsidiary companies in Europe and some came directly from European firms (for example, Hawker-Siddeley Dynamics of the United Kingdom supplied six industrial robots). In all, approximately 75 percent of the production equipment came from the United States and some 25 percent from Italy and other countries in Europe, including U.S. subsidiary companies.”

“In 1930, when Henry Ford undertook to build the Gorki plant, contemporary Western press releases extolled the peaceful nature of the Ford automobile, even though Pravda had openly stated that the Ford automobile was wanted for military purposes. Notwithstanding naive Western press releases, Gorki military vehicles were later used to help kill Americans in Korea and Vietnam.”

“In 1968 Dean Rusk and Wait Rostow once again extolled the peaceful nature of the automobile, specifically in reference to the Volgograd plant. Unfortunately for the credibility of Dean Rusk and Wait Rostow, there exists a proven military vehicle with an engine of the same capacity as the one produced at the Volgograd plant. Moreover, we have the Gorki and ZIL experience. Further, the U.S. government’s own committees have stated in writing and at detailed length that any motor vehicle plant has war potential. Even further, both Rusk and Rostow made explicit statements to Congress denying that Volgograd had military potential.”

“It must be noted that these Executive Branch statements were made in the face of clear and known evidence to the contrary. In other words, the statements can only be considered as deliberate falsehoods to mislead Congress and the American public.”

“…Up to 1968 American construction of Soviet military truck plants was presented as ‘peaceful trade.’ In the late 1960s Soviet planners decided to build the largest truck factory in the world. This plant, spread over 36 square miles situated on the Kama River, has an annual output of 100,000 multi-axle 10-ton trucks, trailers, and off-the-road vehicles. It was evident from the outset, given absence of Soviet technology in the automotive industry, that the design, engineering work, and key equipment for such a facility would have to come from the United States.”

“In 1972, under President Nixon and National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger, the pretense of ’peaceful trade’ was abandoned and the Department of Commerce admitted (Human Events, Dec. 1971) that the proposed Kama plant had military potential. Not only that, but according to a department spokesman, the military capability was taken into account when the export licenses were issued for Kama.”

“The following American firms received major contracts to supply production equipment for the gigantic Kama heavy truck plant:

* Glidden Machine & Tool, Inc., North Tonawanda, New York — Milling machines and other machine tools.

* Gulf and Western Industries, Inc., New York, N.Y. — A contract for $20 million of equipment.

* Holcroft & Co., Kovinia, Michigan — Several contracts for heat treatment furnaces for metal parts.

* Honeywell, Inc., Minneaspolis, Minnesota — Installation of automated production lines and production control equipment.

* Landis Manufacturing Co., Ferndale, Michigan — Production equipment for crankshafts and other machine tools.

* National Engineering Company, Chicago Illinois — Equipment for the manufacutre of castings.

* Swindell-Dresser Company (a subsidy of Pullman Incorporated), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — Design of a foundry and equipment for the foundry, including heat treatment furnaces and sine;ting equipment under several contracts ($14 million).

* Warner & Swazey Co., Cleveland, Ohio — Production equipment for crankshafts and other machine tools.

* Combustion Engineering: molding machines ($30 million). Ingersoll Milling Machine Company: milling machines.

* E. W. Bliss Company”

“Who were the government officials responsible for this transfer of known military technology? The concept originally came from National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger, who reportedly sold President Nixon on the idea that giving military technology to the Soviets would temper their global territorial ambitions. How Henry arrived at this gigantic non sequitur is not known. Sufficient to state that he aroused considerable concern over his motivations. Not least that Henry had been a paid family employee of the Rockefellers since 1958 and has served as International Advisory Committee Chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank, a Rockefeller concern.”

“The U.S.-Soviet trade accords including Kama and other projects were signed by George Pratt Shultz, later to become Secretary of State in the Reagan Administration and long known as a proponent of more aid and trade to the Soviets. Shultz is former President of Bechtel Corporation, a multi-national contractor and engineering firm.”

“American taxpayers underwrote Kama financing through the Export-Import Bank. The head of Export-Import Bank at that time was William J. Casey, a former associate of Armand Hammer and now (1985) Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Financing was arranged by Chase Manhattan Bank, whose then Chairman was David Rockefeller. Chase is the former employer of Paul Volcker, now Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank. Today, William Casey denies knowledge of the military applications (see page 195), although this was emphatically pointed out to official Washington 15 years ago.”

“We cite these names to demonstrate the tight interlocking hold proponents of miltiary aid to the Soviet Union maintain on top policy making government positions.”

“On the other hand, critics of selling U.S. military technology have been ruthlessly silenced and suppressed.”

“For two decades rumors have surfaced that critics of aid to the Soviet Union have been silenced. Back in the 1930s General Electric warned its employees in the Soviet Union not to discuss their work in the USSR under penalty of dismissal.”

“In the 1950s and 1960s IBM fired engineers who publicly opposed sale of IBM computers to the USSR…”

—end of Sutton excerpt—

In the current climate of “cancel anything Russian,” supporters of that campaign ought to be calling for the cancellation of Americans indicted in Sutton’s work.

But of course, how many people know what Sutton discovered?

The widespread ignorance is no accident.

  2. Opie Poik says:

    “The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others ; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were- cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”

      Just watched it. Very clear and fits in with what I know, but giving more context and detail. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. We need to know this information.

  5. Richard E. Browning, P.E. says:

    A great article. I think very few people realize that most large bankers thrive on war. They support both sides. Your research and comments are spot-on. I just wish your matrix programs were on CD’s so I could listen to them while driving since I drive over 50,000 miles a year. Keep up the good work.

    Romans 13:1–14

    English Standard Version

    Submission to the Authorities

    13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for she is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, tan avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.

    Fulfilling the Law Through Love

    8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

    • Tim says:

      Haha…”instituted by God…” my ass. Them that believe “satan” is GOD believe the “authorities” are instruments of “GOD”…and vice-versa…them that believe the “authorities” are instituted by GOD then either knowingly or unknowingly believes “satan” is GOD.

      GOD has no “wrath”(and has no need for it)…what a pathetic projection by the ego/satan/anti-Christ…Yaldabaoth.

      LOVE is The Law, the whole of The Law. Nothing is prohibited, everything is permited.
      What one reaps they have sown. Grace and Mercy recognizes mitigating circumstances, and KNOWS the difference between Reality and fantasy.

      Infinite LOVE Is the Only TRUTH, Truth, truths, anything else is a daydream of nonsense and delusion.

      John 7:7
      “The world cannot hate you, but it hates me first, because I am testifying about it, that its servants and workings are evil.”

    “The situation is so dire, even George W. Bush’s Energy Advisor, Matthew Simmons, has acknowledged, “The situation is desperate. This is the world’s biggest serious question.”

    In an August 2003 interview, Mr. Simmons was asked if it was time for Peak Oil to become part of the public policy debate.

    He responded: “It is time. As I have said, the experts and politicians have no Plan B to fall back on.

    If energy peaks, particularly while 5 of the world’s 6.5 billion people have little or no use of modern energy, it will be a tremendous jolt to our economic well-being and to our health – greater than anyone could ever imagine.”

    There is a projected graph, labeled:

    North American Oil Production
    United States

    From ~ 2000-2035, there is a declining slope, 3 Gb (? Giga barrels) at year 2000, to 0.5 Gb at year 2035.

    Funny thing, there is NO prophetic spike in US oil production, during President Donald J. Trump’s 1st Term.

    I reckon it was difficult to envision, one such as he.

    Oh well,

      Read Antony Sutton’s book “AMERICA’S SECRET ESTABLISHMENT
      AN INTRODUCTION TO THE ORDER of SKULL & BONES”. You will see these names among many: Prescott Sheldon Bush, GHW Bush, GW Bush, John Kerry, Winston Lord, W. Averell Harriman, Knight Woolley, Timothy DWIGHT. Note that in Sutton’s book Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler he notes that Prescott S. Bush was a banker to the Nazis. He also notes that a protege and friend of FDR was the probable cause of the Reichstag fire. Putzi Hanfstaengl.

    Ignorance. Indeed.

    I thin Americans today are way stupider than they were 50 years ago.

    It’s even scary. We are truly living in an IDIOCRACY’ (there is a film about it that could have been better).

    The fact that hundreds of millions ran to get injected with bio-weapons posing as ‘vaccines’ proves this point.

    The same morons ‘stand for ukraine’, not because they know anyhting or even want to educate themselves but because they are vegetable just good enough to be filled from their ‘smartphone’ or TV screen (the idiot box).

    Somehow, the globalists with their depopulation agenda are killing the golden eggs chicen by genociding their best supporters: the itiotic, triple jabbed, forukraine’ masses…

    Within 5 years these morons will be dead. How on earth the globalists will keep plundering and manipulating the masses?

    My only concern is that the idiots are not dying quick enough

    “The question is why: why are these men doing this? Are they bankrolling and supplying both sides of a war for the money? Is because they want to make both sides equal, in hopes that a standoff will avert a global catastrophe?

    To the Predator Class that includes those who back both sides of war… sure it’s money and stalemate but there’s more. A deeper, more sick reason.

    To Them, the People of the World are just lifeless game board pieces on a real version of paying LIFE the board game. We aren’t valuable living creatures but nothings to be used and abused by THEM.

    They amuse their sick pleasure and twisted view of Reality by pushing our faces into the mud as they laugh about it and plan their next way to abuse us. And so many of the Human family are so used to this kind of abuse that The Abusers feel empowered that We are not worthy of better treatment. This is a way to separate out Those Who Count from Those Who Don’t.

    Some people wonder if Heaven and Hell are real places. They shouldn’t wonder about this. Anyone who is touched by War knows that Hell is real… RIGHT HERE ON THIS EARTH. You don’t have to go looking elsewhere for it.

    • Tesla Rules says:

      It was Antony Sutton that revealed a curious thing that caught my attention. A man with 2 middle names caught my attention, George Herbert Walker Bush. His grandfather was George Herbert Walker was a St. Louis baker that meged an English and American bank. The American was Harriman. He gave evidence that the bank makes money when America is at war, but not when not at war. It is a Bush connected bank.

      Too many think the Bushs are into oil only. Brown Bros. Harriman. W.A. Harriman and his brother, sons of the founder of the Union Pacific RR, are also Skull & Bones mebers.

    … ruthlessly silenced and suppressed.

    Those ploys work just as well then as it does now.

    But not so much on me any longer. And quite a few others too. And growing.

  15. George says:

    Perhaps the title of the article is incorrect. The correct title would be:
    ‘Naming names: US built war capability for USSR—leading to the deaths of American soldiers’

    The American elite in the United States created by Freemasons and Satanists originally supported the Communists in Germany (Jew Marx and others) and then the Jewish Communists in Russia, who with the help of the United States overthrew Russia in 1917 and exterminated about 100 million Russians.

    The conspiracy between the American elite and the Jewish Communists confirms, among other things, Sutton.

    Very informative, thank you.

  17. Ron Marr says:

    This is one of another brilliant article. Thank you, Jon. Very, very revealing. I mean, this all theirs… It belongs to them. From the time of the first Bloodline Kings…the eighth King Uruash and his five sons spread civilization through out the world. The Bloodlines spread through out the world as the leadership of their seeded civilizations. Humans and all of Life had to endure their wars and destruction of Life itself. Then the Rothschild and his five sons spread money through out the world.They could establishes ports of empire and put forth players on their global chess board, all the while killing life at every convenient moment. Their game plays out now toward a total reset of the human genome and total control of life on Earth…so much so, that they are sucking the CO2 out of our Hemisphere. LOL, yes, it is that sad. SO…They brought in Rockefeller and his five sons to move the pieces on the chess board, stated brilliantly in Jon Rapport’s article, to set up destruction of civilization and make room in the minds of all humans for a Great Reset. We bring the life to their fake reality…take back your mind so they can’t tell you what you think you know. Consciousness is our ONLY salvation.

  18. Fiona says:

    Fiat also built from scratches complete car factory in Poland the sixties. They were Soviet Union satellite at the time. I doubt Italians had means to finance such a large undertaking, and I suspect it was Wall Street also who saw an opportunity to cross Iron Curtain for profit.

    Good capitalist will sell you rope on which you want to hang him.

  19. Seamus Padraig says:

    I just read Sutton’s ‘Wall Street Trilogy’ last year, and it was a real eye-opener! I resisted reading him for years, thinking him a ‘conspiracy nut’. But once I finally broke down and did so, my understanding of history was transformed. His documentation is meticulous, and he always resists drawing stronger conclusions than his evidence warrants. I would recommend his work to anybody who wants to know the (sad) reality of our world.

  20. Tesla Rules says:

    Jon, thanks for the great article, though I know most of it. Too many have no clue. I had the good fortune to hear Antony Sutton on a Southwest Radio Church program, speaking Skull & Bones. He was so compelling I bothered my little tow librarian for the books and authors he mentioned. Thanks to Antony I learned of Cleon Skousen and his books, as well as the Reese Committee and Rene Wormser. I’ve never taken so many notes on books. Thanks to Skousen a book I had considered just a science fiction became a prophetic book of what the globalists intend…Brave New World. It mirrored a book written more than 2,000 years ago, Plato’s The Republic.

    These two book, in my opinion describe exactly what the Marxists intend for the world. Funny how Skousen’s second book The Naked Capitalist is a review of a book the size of old phone books and more than 1,200 pages long and that book written by a man that has been said to have been a mentor of Bill Clinton, Georgetown U professor Carrol Quigley. Quigley’s other book The Anglo-American Establishment ties in Cecil Rhodes. Of course, Skull & Bones ties together the Bush family, John Kerry, the Tafts and many more.
