The Prussian town of Kassel has functioned in some ways as Germany’s Langley- In the 16th century it became the seat of Calvinism, a Venetian operation designed to reboot the Venetian’s first attempt at a schism, Lutheranism, which had quickly settled into pacifism of a sort with the Quietist movement- Calvinism was militant in implication in that, according to this new heresy, it did not matter what atrocities one committed as the pre-incarnate elect were saved before they were even born, so they could not sin if their life depended on it, even as their behavior, like slaughtering an enemy and their women and children, had the outward form of sin- This elect numbered but 5% of all souls in Christendom, though which Calvinists were the lotto winners was not revealed until after death- In a strong field, this may be the worst iteration of Xtianity, ever-
Later, Rosicrucianism found safe haven within the city’s walls- That was another lunatic op from the mind benders, likely also Venetian derived- Huguenots also found refuge there as the Venetian backed wars of religion raged across the continent-
In the 18th century, one of the town’s leading industries was mercenaries, rent-a-soldiers who at times found their fellow Hessians fighting for the opposite side of a conflict, for example the warring parties involved in the so-called American Revolution both employed Hessians from Kassel-
The Brothers Grimm project was executed from Kassel, traumatizing generations of children into obedience- Napoleon had a go as well, installing a brother to rule the short lived kingdom of Westphalia with Kassel as its seat- In time, after swapping loyalties with one side or another, Kassel became a major industrial center and hub for much railway traffic, engine design also dominating the industry- The money men had a free reign-
Dachau supplied prison labor to Kassel during WWII before the Allies blowed the city up real good- From the rubble arose Germany’s entree’ into modern art, the mountebank Joseph Beuys leading the great legacy of German art over the cliff-
So when I found that Herman Lamm was from Kassel, I was not surprised-
Who was Herman Lamm, you ask? He was, according to official history, the greatest bank robber of all time- The “everybody put your hands up” type of robber, not the Wall Street variety-
He was born in Kassel in 1890- He was a Prussian officer who was dishonorably discharged for, wait for it… cheating at cards- As a cover story for an asset going underground, that’s pretty lazy- Couldn’t he have slapped a superior while drunk and gotten 30 days in the cooler? That’s a little more believable, but not by much-
Regardless, he immigrated to America just before the outbreak of WWI, and in my version of events, he was here as a hire, an intelligence officer paid by the US government to help organize and execute the operations that involved the rural bank robberies of the twenties and thirties which force fed congress into passing new federal friendly laws that neutered state’s rights in the long lead up to WWII-
Once on shore, Lamm wasted no time, getting arrested in San Francisco in 1914- There was no disposition of the case so he skated, as assets under arrest do- I suspect this arrest was a meet and greet with police intel and to get the lay of the land as far as what kind of banks and people he was to encounter once he was activated- And Frisco being the seat of the Pope’s bank abroad, Bank of America, nee: Bank of Italy, there was probably interchange with that faction, funding likely the main topic-
Lamm was hired because of his military acumen- He was the guy who designed the process that is so familiar in movies about bank heists- He gave gang members specific tasks, like the wheel man who only drove to and from the scene- The lookout was stationed near the bank to signal if cops were sniffing around- The lobby man held the gun on the patrons, the vault man scooped up the cash and bagged it-
Lamm went further, mapping out the roads, and alternate routes if needed, timing each phase of the op with a stop watch, restricting the time for the heist, regardless of how much cash could be got with just a few seconds more in the vault- He also employed professional race car drivers so one could assume professional racing was infiltrated with military assets/lodge members like every other professional sport-
He took the guess work out of what had been up to that time a hit and miss affair- All told, his haul at the end of his 15 year run was said to be over one million dollars-
Why do I say bank robberies were part of a long con by the government?
A wild bank shot: The “assassination” of Tsar Alexander II
STOP RIGHT THERE!!!
The preceding was the opening of a post designed to give some context to the Bonnie and Clyde post from a few weeks ago- Somehow, from this point on, I suddenly found myself in Moscow, 1881, and dealing with the hoax assassination of Tsar Alexander II- Immediately thereafter, I traversed the continent and the English Channel and found myself, twenty five years later, in London’s east end, knee deep in Slavic Jews still running from the oppressive repercussions of that fake assassination that had, inevitably, been blamed on said Jews-
I found out that Big Joe Steel (Stalin for those scoring at home) had been in London in 1907 for some party congress- I then sifted through this and that, trying to confirm the obvious, that Stalin et al were agents of the west, and I came upon this video below while researching the siege at Sidney Street, a famous robbery fuck up that turned the tide against those immigrant Jews that were then so well established that there were over 100 synagogues in the immediate East End environs- This video, from 1911, is the first filmed psy-op and it features none other than Winston Churchill, then head of the home office- He brought Pathe’ news service with him to film the police and firefighters- There is nothing in this collection of film clips to convince anyone with the most rudimentary knowledge of film editing that any of this is an actual siege-
I continued my pursuit of how the British were sponsoring those whom would become the core members of the Russian revolution, apparently by allowing funding to come from scores of bank and store robberies in London, when I came across a stagecoach robbery in a Georgian town called Tiflis in 1907- Stalin has been accused of being the master mind of this robbery where we are told that 3 plus million in today’s money was snatched for the revolution- That was the angle of pursuit I had been following, that there may be parallels between the commies robbing banks for the revolution and the hayseed bank robbers of the American Midwest- What were the hayseeds doing with their swag?
Finally, the lightbulb hovering above my pointy little head hissed, sputtered, and the tungsten filament began to glow- Tiflis- The full frontal attack on the coach and its large number of armed guards had taken dozens of innocent lives as collateral damage- Scores of soldiers were also killed- What a blockbuster that would make if brought to the silver screen!
But of course it’s all bullshite- If London and Wall Street were, as Anthony Sutton has convinced me, paying for the revolution, how were they getting the money to the boots on the ground? My all in bet is that they had their minions in the media explain the success of the revolutionaries as being possible by the execution of a series of crimes… that were almost certainly never committed- To explain the fact that the revolution had legs and then some, and that revolutions cost money, the powers had to concoct a viable reason for their success- One that cut deep in fear and terror- Sudden, violent, messy with innocent blood- Folks, watch out! These bastards kill women and children- They mean it!
So, while the western bankers were shipping out the gold to the Bolshevik leaders under cover of night, the cowed public was reading with their inflamed emotions about the relentless beast fast approaching on a wave of profitable, and violent, crimes-
Naturally the intellectuals, who always have their emotions firmly leashed, were fiercely debating the efficacy of the various communist programs, which like any tax laws, were designed to befuddle indefinitely, rather than apply their vaunted mental powers to confirming if any of this mayhem was actually taking place-
The Tsar and family were given a particularly nasty demise by the writers and shuttled off stage, probably for a time to one of the more remote holdings of the Commonwealth, say, Ceylon, to let the heat dissipate- Like JFK on Skorpios, or Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in wherever Miles suggested they hid out for 20 years, so too house Romanov found solace in some paradisiacal setting before going wherever they went-
So what’s up with Herman Lamm in America? For all I now know, he may have never existed- Just a figment of a spook writer’s imagination as the committee he worked for tasked him with concocting a plausible story to explain, like the commie revolutionaries, the ongoing success of these bank robbers (Motive for such a long term op forthcoming)
But let’s say he did exist- He’s credited, as I said, with designing the classic bank robbery while in jail in the late teens (In the spook safe house wing I imagine) That’s the premise as to why the banking industry couldn’t stop him and his gang- And later, after his ‘death’ in 1930, two of his surviving gang members taught John Dillinger the Lamm technique which his gang then used to great effect (After being let out of prison, the story being he shot his way out- Right)
Now, let’s step back and think it through- Just like finding 19 high-jackers who will volunteer to enter into a mass murder/suicide pact and have the cognitive skills to pull it off, how difficult would it be to find well-disciplined teams of psychopaths to pass off as normal adults long enough to get inside a bank and then, with military precision, pull off dozens and dozens of successful heists, with only a scattered number of dead left in their wake? And be successful at it for over a decade and a half? I would say it is impossible for the crime waves of the 20’s and 30’s to have happened in any way shape or form like we have been sold- Would it not be prudent to assume that banks in that era would spend a little bit on security, knowing from police reports how these alleged heists were orchestrated?
And who would rob a bank for a relative pittance each time out with such extreme punishments awaiting failure? I’ll submit that nobody does- The occasional bank robber who spooks a few grand off a threatened teller is almost certainly a government friendly security firm hire testing the teller’s responses and then workshopping with them on how to conduct business with a phantom robber- His reports of the exercise results are added to the story ideas note bank in the basement writer’s room in Ol’ Virginny-
(If your world needs stories of hop heads trying to knock over pawn shops to feed the monkey, knock yourself out- If real, you won’t read about any of it, at least unspun)
I will cop to the idea of drills having been staged with just enough verisimilitude to con the locals and back it with screaming headlines to sell the occasional threat demonstration- But those involved were, like Lamm, military, and they knew how to play act within the context of a drill- I challenge anyone to find me evidence of a psychotic with the mental and physical skills to lead, yes lead, a pack of similar mentally and morally deficient mad men into such combat- And over and over?
As I said in the Bonnie and Clyde post, these rural gangsters were created, mostly out of whole cloth, to allow the federal government to override state’s rights, especially in regards to restraining the weapons industries- Corn Belt bin Ladens, if you will-
And why do that? Well, if you are going to deliberately tank the economy and enforce on American citizens a slightly milder form of socialism than that of the Russkies, you can’t have well regulated militias networking while farms are being stolen right out from under their feet-
The patina of Robin Hooding that was attached to the legends robbing small banks for beer money, and killing anyone inconveniencing them in the process, made armed insurrection by have nots appear to be tantamount to mindless savagery- In my opinion, that is what the anxiety of the day was manufactured for: To have ordinary people run to the central authorities, just like the people fell victim to the central committees- Workers of the world unite, because individuality can’t survive in such a savage jungle-
