Hitler Betrayed Rudolf Hess (and Germany)

July 8, 2023

(At Hitler's side.) 
Hitler did not have to disown his loyal lieutenant
as "a lunatic."
He could have confirmed that Hesse was a
peace emissary and demanded his return. 
Churchill would have looked like a warmonger.
But Hitler and Churchill were in collusion.
The object was to get rid of Hess
so Hitler's fellow traitor Martin Bormann
could take his place.

According to former Nazi officials, Rudolf Hess was following Hitler's orders when he flew to Scotland in May 1941 with an offer to reverse Nazi victories in Western Europe in exchange for peace and a free hand in the East.

When Churchill rejected this offer, Hitler pretended that Hess was insane and acted on his own initiative.

 Frank Brandenburg is the author of Quest: Searching for the Truth of Germany's Nazi Past (1992).  
Around 1980, he spoke to Hess' wife Ilse, as well as many other Nazis who made a convincing case that Hess's peace mission was in fact authorized by the Fuhrer. 

quest.jpg"My husband would not have acted without the Fuhrer's consent,"  Mrs. Hess said. "My husband was totally loyal to the Fuhrer." (263-264)

Her conviction was confirmed by Hitler's personal pilot Hans Baur who said Hess had been given secret map codes in Hitler's possession. (260) Hess' closest associate Ernst Wilhelm Bohle said he translated Hitler's offer into English. (271-2)

SS General Karl Wolff said Hitler's outrage was a "show."  Wolff was at a meeting with Hitler at the Berghof when the news of Hess's flight to England was brought to him. "The Fuhrer threw a terrible temper tantrum...he put on quite a show...the Fuhrer was an accomplished actor when he wanted to be..." (246)

More telling is the fact that Hitler punished many of Hess's minor associates but not his family or Boehle. When you think about it, Hess would never have tried to usurp peace-making powers from Hitler nor left his family as hostages.

Nevertheless, the Powers That Be have succeeded in making Hess out to be a lunatic rather than an idealistic peacemaker.  They have managed to bury Brandenburg's book. It was published by a tiny publisher of military books, Presidio, in Novato CA in 1990. In 2002, Presidio was bought by Random House which is owned by Bertelsmann. You can bet Bertelsmann is controlled by the Illuminati.

Louis Kilzer's "Hitler's Traitor," which outed Martin Bormann as an Illuminati agent, was also published by Presidio. Both books were hardly reviewed and are now out of print.


If Hitler authorized Hess' flight on May 10, 1941, to visit the Duke of Hamilton, there are two possible interpretations.

The first is that Hitler genuinely wanted peace with England before attacking Russia 12 days later. To send the Deputy Fuhrer of the Third Reich on such a mission, Hitler must have had reasonable assurances of its success.

We know from other sources that Hess, Hitler and Churchill, and the Duke of Hamilton all belonged to a homosexual occult group -- the Thule Society in Germany and the Order of the Golden Dawn in England -- both branches of the Illuminati.  Did the English branch lead the Germans to think it was doing England's bidding by attacking Bolshevik Russia? In other words, was Hitler double-crossed and tricked into a two-front war?

If this is true, it suggests the Illuminati run their pawns at arm's length, tricking and manipulating them, as opposed to using them as conscious agents. 

But there is a second interpretation. I suspect Hitler, being "an accomplished actor," was like Bormann, a conscious Illuminati agent.  He knew the Rothschilds (i.e. Illuminati Freemasons) ran both England and the USSR. He was probably a Rothschild himself, albeit illegitimate. There was no way England would make peace and hang Stalin out to dry. I believe Hitler deliberately led Germany into a trap when he attacked Russia. Lebensraum? Germany ruled all of Europe.

No, Hitler's loyalties were to the Fourth Reich, the New World Order.  

That's why he disowned Hess. He could have made public his generous peace offer and painted Churchill as a war-monger. He could have sued in the Court of Public Opinion for the release of a peacemaker. He could have taken or traded British high-ranking prisoners.

Instead, Hitler protected the warmonger Churchill and double-crossed Hess. Apparently, Hitler needed to get rid of Hess.  Possibly, Hess stood in the way of Bormann's advancement to second place in the Nazi hierarchy. Bormann was a Communist (Illuminati) agent.

There are additional signs in this book that Hitler was an agent. The Russians who supposedly found Hitler's body never believed Hitler was dead. They tortured his pilot Hans Baur for eight years to reveal where he took Hitler. (49)

In the bunker, Hitler instructed one of his secretaries, Christa Schroeder, to burn secret correspondence in three safes at different locations. They were the records of his "personal intelligence network" a "far-flung network of informers, advisers and confidants...powerful and knowledgeable men...Big Business. Scientists. Many important industrialists...the Fuhrer could not have built and reached the level of his power without the help, conscious or not, of such people, could he?' " (103-105)

Hitler blocked the development of nuclear weapons, calling it a "Jew science."

SS General Werner Best, who ran Denmark in an enlightened fashion, told Brandenburg that he was in contact with anti-Communist leaders in Ukraine in 1939. Had Hitler promised them a degree of autonomy, they could have brought two million soldiers to the Nazi cause. (195)

Quest author Frank Brandenburg was only 20-years-old in 1978  when he decided to look up high-ranking Nazis in West Germany. His youth gained him access. These Nazis trusted him and tried to recruit him to their cause. They were in desperate need of young blood.

Gen. Karl Wolff helped by giving Brandenburg his SS ring and told him that a codeword for gaining trust was the name of Hitler's third German Shepherd dog, "Muck."

It seems that Hess was not the last high-ranking Nazi Hitler eliminated with British aid.

Reinhard Heydrich's wife Lina said that her husband was recovering from the assassination attempt when Hitler had his own medical staff take charge. Four days later Heydrich was dead. Lina is convinced Hitler and Himmler feared her husband. SS General Wilhelm Hottl said Heydrich had made the mistake of telling Walter Schellenberg that he thought the Fuhrer "was insane and had to be replaced." (151)

Possibly, the British dispatched the two Czech agents to kill Heydrich for this reason. They had to protect their agent, Adolf Hitler.

As for Bormann, Brandenburg spoke to dozens of high-ranking Nazis and almost all implied that Bormann escaped. Moreover, Bormann led a powerful Nazi movement that intended to regain ascendancy. (This movement is part of the Illuminati.)

Medard Klapper, a member of Hitler's personal bodyguard, told Brandenburg he met Bormann in Spain in 1982. The post-war Nazi movement was called Mariborsol  (from Martin Bormann & sun) and was headquartered in Madrid. It was financed by investments on a world scale, " real estate, manufacturing plants. All kinds of profitable investments and business ventures, controlled by our people..." (291)


In considering if Hitler was an agent, we should recall this passage from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

"De facto we have already wiped out every kind of rule except our own, although de jure there still remain a good many of them. Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us it is only pro forma at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-Semtism is indispensable to us in the management of our lesser brethren. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter has formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us." (Protocol 9)

Rudolf Hess' story is a tragic one.  He was locked away in Spandau prison until his suicide (his son says murder) in 1987. He was allowed four letters from family and one visit from his wife a month. But they were never alone. "I was never able to touch my husband," Ilse Hess said.

What was his crime? He was incarcerated in 1941 before the holocaust began. He served a man who was Time's Man of the Year in 1938.

No, his crime was knowing about the Illuminati and the extent of "British" collaboration in the rise of Hitler. His crime was not knowing that his beloved Fuhrer was setting him and Germany up for annihilation.

First Comment from Dan:

I read the article this morning and wasn't going to comment.  Later I kept thinking something was missing.   Reading the article you'd think Hess vanished in the air like Amelia Earhart, leaving a mystery.  
But Hess was very much alive in Britain for the duration of the war as Winston Churchill's 'personal prisoner', code-named 'Z'.  He spent most of the duration in a mental hospital in Wales.  Hess pretended to be suffering amnesia while in British captivity.  He was flown to Nuremberg to stand trial.  There was a preliminary court proceeding to determine whether Hess was competent to be a witness.   That's when he admitted he'd pretended to have amnesia all those years.   In the witness box, he asked to stand trial with the others and sat next to Goering during the proceedings.   This is all on film, and every word of his testimony is in the Nuremberg Trial transcripts, available online.

It's pointless trying to make sense of anyone in the illuminati because they are all literally crazy and have a minimum of 169 compartmentalized personalities whereas most of us have only 1. One of Hitler's personalities could have wanted peace meanwhile the other 168 could have wanted war.

Hitler Was A British Agent by Greg Hallet:

Mario said (January 30, 2017):

Regarding your article about Hitler as traitor to Hess and Germany. Why Hitler disavow Hess about negotiation with British.

Really Hitler never want war with GB .So is quite sure that Hitler send to England with orders to made peace and possible alliance between Germany and G.B.

Maybe Hitler think that after falling peace possibilities with England ( Hitler has hope that there is a pro-german anti soviet stablisment in England) when Hess has been captured he does not want to view to others as a personal failure

Maybe more important the reason also was that Hitler was preparing invasion to Soviet Union . that Hitler was afraid that Stalin think that Hess flight mean attack to Soviet Union, that Hitler send Hess with orders to England to negotiate peace with the intention to made alliance against Soviet Union.( Churchill Stalin communications) Hitler does not want that Stalin made military defensive movement against planned invasion Barbarosa.

If fact Stalin never believe that Hitler try to Invade Soviet Union in 1941 and has two front war. Was a complete surprise. Stalin thought that maybe German invasion more in future but not in 1941. Hitler always try to convince Stalin of German URSS friendship and in fact URSS send raw materials to Germany till the invasion.

Milton said (January 28, 2017):

What about the issue of debt free money - you never seem to mention it.

It was the real reason for the war.

Churchill would have just been a drunk bankrupt without Hitler. He was an Anti- Semite before the Jews paid all his debts.

James C said (January 28, 2017):

This is the most ridiculous article yet. To even remotely suggest that Hitler and Churchill were in collusion is contrary to every thing we know about the true history of World War II. Churchill was a bloodthirsty warmongering psychopath who did everything in his power to start a war with Germany. Hitler, on the other hand, did everything in his power to avoid war with England. Some have an ongoing vendetta to bash Hitler any way they can.

Gianluigi said (January 28, 2017):

Interesting theory on Hitler and Hess. But based solely on speculation. The fact is Hitler was tricked by the British. He actually believed a section of the British aristocracy supported Nazism and would take over the government and make peace with Germany. He was duped to send Hess on his mission. When Hess was arrested in Scotland and no government takeover occurred Hitler saved embarrassment by claiming Hess was crazy and acted without consent. The whole theory of Hitler being a British agent, or acting on behalf of the Jews, is quite farfetched. Apparently Gentiles are not supposed to be able to fight back so Gentile leaders like Hitler have to be presented as frauds secretly working for the Jews.


Thanks Gianluigi

Hitler could easily have embarrassed Churchill and shown him to be the real warmonger if he had not disowned Hess, but instead portrayed him as the Peace Emissary he indeed was.


Z said (January 27, 2017):

The timeline of the events tells all we need to know

March–May: German success in the Mediterranean basin.
May: Hess vanishes.
June: the Nazis invade the USSR.


1. The German deployment in the Far East ceased – Rommel was forsaken at the gates of Egypt; the directive to march to the southeast and the expeditions against Malta and Cyprus were rescinded, definitively. All available German forces were hastily conveyed towards Russia. Had Rommel succeeded in North Africa…had he reached Suez and penetrated the Near East to make juncture with Japanese forces…The global strategy of the Nazi General Staff would have been immensely
advanced towards its goal of global victory…The failure of the Nazi campaign in North Africa must take its place among the great ‘ifs’ of history.

2. The night of Hess’s disappearance coincided with the final aerial raid conducted by the Luftwaffe against Britain.

The above is from the book “Conjuring Hitler”.

Andrew said (January 27, 2017):

We can well believe Rudolf Hess was following Hitler’s orders when he flew to Scotland in May 1941 with an offer to reverse Nazi victories in Western Europe in exchange for peace and a free hand in the East. Although we’ll never know the full story of Rudolph Hess, Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Antony C. Sutton explains the contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations. It was phenomenal and crucial to Nazi Germany’s ultimate military capabilities. Not only was an influential sector of American business aware of the danger of Hitler and his Nazi party, but for its own purposes aided Nazism wherever possible (and profitable)―with full knowledge that the probable outcome would be war involving Europe and the United States.

Professor Sutton cuts through WW II propaganda BS to reveal one of the most remarkable and under-reported facts of World War II―that key Wall Street banks and American businesses supported Hitler’s rise to power by financing and trading with Nazi Germany. Carefully tracing this closely guarded secret through original documents and eyewitness accounts, Sutton comes to the unsavory conclusion that the catastrophe of World War II was extremely profitable for a select group of financial insiders. He presents a thoroughly documented account of the role played by J.P. Morgan, T.W. Lamont, the Rockefeller interests, General Electric, Standard Oil, and the National City, Chase, and Manhattan banks, Kuhn, Loeb and Company, General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and scores of others in helping to prepare the bloodiest, most destructive war in history.

Wolfgang said (November 18, 2009):

I don t believe that Hitler was in England in 1912 – 1913 because an agent trained with high cost at Tavistock should be in a more influential position avoiding premature loss as soldier in the front line. Hitler was just a simple voluntary in WW I reaching the grade of “Gefreiter” with one not so rare decoration. He was wounded by a gas attack as a runner. That Hitler was two times an English prisoner of war was never mentioned in Germany, giving that a perfect background to paint him as a war hero for escaping two times and returning to his own lines.

Based upon those suppositions a lot of facts and decisions made by Hitler and the government of that time are interpreted by the author of that book as Illuminati inspired. That is wishful thinking and a lot of fancy very difficult to sustain.

I agree that the Nazi – Movement as also the Communist one was initially Illuminati financed but I see some similarity with the changes initiated by Stalin in later years to push aside the former handlers and turn to other contexts as favored by the Illuminati.

That the way politics works. First you look from help signing up with what is offered to you, but when you reach power and your proposed position betray your earlier supporters and look not to get murdered by them if they catch you. In democracy it is just not as murderous as in dictatorships.

The World History is full of accidents not envisioned by the plans of the Illuminati. That is our hope.

Jaason said (October 22, 2009):

Sir, I read your article with interest recently. The files on Hess that the UK still have are being retained until 2017/18. Anyone can make an FOI Request to the FCO to ask for the information.If many people do this the FCO will have a meeting to discuss the retained information.The file references are: FO 1093/11/1 (FOLIO 33) and FO 181/969/12. FOI Requests can be made by email at Please publicise this information so that people act on it and we can discover the historical truth now.

Dwight said (August 6, 2009):

I enjoy your articles about Hitler. His true role as leader of Germany and his disappearance after the war are truly a mystery. Other evidence of Hitler being an agent of England and the Illuminati is that he held up the attack on Moscow for two months which allowed Stalin to reinforce his defences and bring in reinforcements from Siberia. If He had attacked, immediately after Smolensk(after resupply), he would have shattered the outnumbered, disorganized, ill equipped and ill trained forces in front of Moscow.

Plus, the winter rain and ice would not have been a problem. Even with Hitler's bungling, his troops fought to within sight of the Kremlin. A victory at Moscow would have cut Russian train supply lines and communication lines. It would have pushed their staging area behind Moscow. The Russsians would have had to retreat behind the Urals.

Also, another chance at victory was lost when the generals of Army group North failed to press the attack and break through enemy lines and sat in the bridge head, and allowed the Russians to fall back on Lenningrad. The commander of the first Tank army (Army group North) was responsible for this. He later was executed as part of the plot to kill Hitler. I wonder if he was also a British agent.

Urban said (August 3, 2009):

Hitler only reached this position (chanceller) because he made a pact with the high finance.
As we know, if puppets (for example Saddam) do not work like they should, they will be destroyed. And Hitler was a mighty puppet and developed his own will.

Hitler wanted peace with England but all german offers were rejected or ignored. For example one secret peace offer said: Germany retreats from all occupied countries also France and will help to rebuild Poland. The seriousness of this unbelievable offer was confirmed because of the popes own mediation.

Because peace was no possibility at Churchill´s agenda the British tried to delay and trap Germany.

If Hitler would have been an agent why should he do these unnecessary things?
British Pseudo negotiations were conducted. Hitler should believe that there are upper nobility exponents who want peace with Germany and perhaps would bring down Churchill.
Hitler wanted and needed peace with England.

Therefore he secretly sent Hess to clear this. When Hess was arrested there was no other possibilty for Hitler to save. Hitler had to say that Hess got mad and had no order to do this.
If you want to know more about the Hess flight I recommend Martin Allen´s book "The Hitler/Hess deception" or the documentary report "Geheimakte Rudolf Hess" (the secret file of Rudolf Hess)

Hess was most likely murdered because the British could not accept a witness who gets probably free. (Soviets thought about it)
Therefore the British will not release the documents about this periode in the near future. The file Hess is closed until 2017 and partially later.

Why should a man sitting more than 40 years in jail commit suicide when he realizes that there is a small change to get free?
A man to old and to sick to commit this sort of suicide like his male nurse said.

Joe said (August 3, 2009):

I just read your comments on the Rockefellers and Ms. Sotomayer being Illuminati Jews.

Fritz Springmeier in his early newsletters, I believe, stated for a certainty that the Rockefellers were "conversos," or Marrano Jews. These are Jews who converted to Christianity for a variety of reasons... self-preservation, infiltration for power or gain, subversion of the Catholic Church...etc. In the 19th century, much was made of the success of John D. Rockefeller due to his Southern Baptist upbringing and adherence to Christian principles. It was all whitewash... or hogwash... depending on how you like your propaganda.

The original and grand agent of the Illuminati and Rothschilds was Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt was a "converso" Jew who was also a noted Catholic theologian. This is only the start of
such similarities.

Springmeier, in his original newsletters, maintained that the famous Rev. Billy ( William Franklin) Graham is a Frankist Jew. His family assumed the Scotch surname Graham, as I
understand, once they arrived in America. The family name was originally "Frank," which explains why his son is named "Franklin." This can explain why Rev. Graham is on such good
terms with Jewish influentia and that Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum is "one" of Billy's closest advisors. In addition, that Billy teaches
Dual Covenant theology in which Jews do not need Christ. Whenever Jewish people wish to make a decision (?) for Christ in Mr. Graham's crusades, they are not referred to Christian churches but to a Rabbi in a Jewish Synagogue. As an aside, both Pastor John Hagee and the late Jerry Falwell were Dual Covenant adherents according to the Jerusalem Post.

Very interesting article.

Louis Brandeis, Henry Morgenthau and Henry Kissinger are all known to be 20th century Frankists. How many more can be
identified ?

Scott said (August 2, 2009):

A couple of reactions:

"In other words, was Hitler double-crossed and tricked into a two-front war?"

Of course! The British pulled the same stunt on the US, albeit with different results. Enmeshing a country in a 2-front war is bound to weaken the defenses, as was the case with Germany. However, the British may have miscalculated American strength, which ultimately led to a half century of superpower status. Meanwhile, the British lost their empire and were on austerity budgets for several subsequent years. Ironic, when you consider the fact that its Asian positions had been largely abandoned, and thus to susceptible to Japanese attack.

"He was locked away in Spandau prison until his suicide (his son says murder) in 1987."
"What was his crime? He was incarcerated in 1941 before the holocaust began."

These sentences are key. This subject was revisited at the time of his death. Rumors swirled that there was even a double at Spandau Prison, where he might've been the last remaining prisoner. This doesn't really matter much, even if true since he was captured before any atrocities could've occurred. The Russians continually delayed Albert Speer's release. Speer was perceived to be a bigger threat, as former Armaments Minister. In the case of Hess, there had to have been something the British wanted concealed. Dead men tell no tales...
