For US Memorial Day, We Reprise "Hitler's British Handler"

May 30, 2022

A meeting between F.W.Winterbotham, Head of the Air Section in the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), and SIS agent Baron de Ropp, right, on the Baltic shore in East Prussia, 1936. 

Was Baron William de Ropp (1886-1973)
Hitler's British handler?

A British agent funded, advised and represented Hitler.
At what point was Hitler himself a "British" agent? 

"When Churchill was questioned in Parliament about British failure to support [German army efforts to overthrow Hitler,] he replied that the government had a deliberate policy of not dealing with German nationalist leaders who were considered to be a greater evil than Hitler."  (OMG)

The name "Baron Willam de Ropp" isn't well known. There is just one photo available, and only a short Wikipedia entry. Yet he was a British agent who may have been Hitler's handler.

Hitler's "daring" diplomatic & military coups, which astounded the world, were based on advanced knowledge of British intentions provided by de Ropp.
He adds credence to the argument that the Illuminati created Hitler to foment world war.

According to Ladislas Farago, William de Ropp was "one of the most mysterious and influential clandestine operators" of the era. Born in Lithuania in 1877, educated in Germany, he moved to England in 1910.  After serving the British in World War One, he moved to Berlin and contacted fellow Balt, Nazi theoretician Alfred Rosenberg who introduced him to Hitler.

De Ropp worked closely with Rosenberg, who headed the Nazi Party Foreign Office. The Nazis considered him their agent in England where he organized support for the Nazi cause among a powerful segment of the Britsh elite known as the "Cliveden Set."  He organized visits of high officials and exchanges of information. In this congenial atmosphere, the Luftwaffe naively opened its secrets to the British. This was part of a larger Illuminati plan ("Appeasement") to make Hitler think England would support his conquest of Communist Russia.

Farago: "A close personal relationship developed between the Fuhrer and de Ropp. Hitler, using him as his confidential consultant  about British affairs, outlined to him frankly his grandiose plans...a trust no other foreigner enjoyed to this extent." ("The Game of the Foxes" p.88)

In  "King Pawn or Black Knight," (1995) Gwynne Thomas writes:   "The Nazi leader took an instant liking to him, particularly when he discovered that de Ropp had powerful connections among English society and was well informed about much of what was happening in London. De Ropp not only enjoyed [Hitler's] confidence but became his spokesman in dealings with the many important British people Hitler wished to influence...there is strong evidence that de Ropp was instrumental in raising funds in the City of London to finance several of the Nazi election campaigns which ensured that by the end of 1933 the Nazi party was totally established and in control."  (p.25)

A British agent funded, advised and represented Hitler. At what point was Hitler himself a "British" agent? 


After the Illuminati put Hitler in power, they kept him there by sabotaging German opposition.

On May 4, 1938, Ludwig Beck, Chief of the German General Staff had called for the overthrow of Hitler, warning that the country was headed for disaster.

nc.jpgOn May 10, 1938, Prime Minister Chamberlain held a news conference at Cliveden House stating that Britain was seeking a pact with Germany and Italy, and favored the breaking up of Czechoslovakia. As a result of this British acquiescence, the German army dropped its resistance to Hitler's war plans.    

In 1939, De Ropp spelled out the British stand in the event of a German attack on Poland.

"Rosenberg was told the British would fight a defensive 'war', that is to say, would take no action in defence of Poland or in retaliation for Germany's attack on that country. In particular there would be no aerial bombardment of German territory- and the Germans agreed to reciprocate, a decision which held throughout the 'phony war' period."

"This 'deal' struck between de Ropp and Rosenberg would leave open the possibility of quickly ending the war because, de Ropp said, 'neither the British Empire nor Germany would wish to risk their future for the sake of a state which had ceased to exist'. "

Thus, by double-crossing the Poles, the British-based Illuminati succeeded in giving the Nazis a common border with Stalin. It was only a matter of time before war would break out between them.

The task now was to entrap Hitler in a two-front war by provoking an attack on the West. Possibly, Baron de Ropp assured him that the British and French would roll over.

After the war began, De Ropp moved his base of operations to neutral Switzerland but, according to Ladislas Farago, "several times during the war he was summoned to Hitler for consultations." (89)

Remember, William de Ropp was a British agent.  The question remains, was Hitler a conscious British (i.e. Illuminati ) agent himself?  My sense is that the Illuminati sponsor misguided people whose natural goals are in line with the Illuminati agenda and guide them. But I believe Hitler was a conscious agent and de Ropp was his handler.  See Hitler & Borman Were Traitors- The Smoking Gun

In the Lyndon Larouche-sponsored book, "The New Dark Ages Conspiracy: Britain's Plot to Destroy Civilization" (1980)  the author, Carol White writes,

"The truth about Hitler is that he was not only created by the British and British-allied networks, but that the British government led by Winston Churchill continued to use Hitler throughout the war. If this fact was not clearly understood by the allied forces, it was strongly suspected in Germany itself." (p.126)

White goes on to list numerous German army overtures to the British regarding the overthrow of Hitler. All were rebuffed. 

churchill55.jpg"When Churchill was questioned in Parliament about British failure to support these efforts, he replied that the government had a deliberate policy of not dealing with German nationalist leaders who were considered to be a greater evil than Hitler." (p.144) 

In terms of the Illuminati Jewish goal to destroy Germany as an independent force in the world, this is very revealing. The Illuminati protected Hitler. He was their man.


"Putzi" Hanfstaengl (1887-1975) is another mysterious character who identified himself as an American agent in his memoirs. He may have an Illuminati background, possibly a Jewish  mother, a "Heine." He hobnobbed with FDR and other members of the US elite at Harvard and later in NYC where he ran his father's art business.

He moved to Germany in the 1920s and was introduced to Hitler by the American Military attache in Berlin, Truman Smith. Smith asked him to "keep an eye on Hitler." In his Memoirs, Hanfstaengl said he was "an American agent." (Chaitkin, Treason in America, p. 543)

piano.jpgHanfstaengl became a part of Hitler's inner circle often soothing the Fuhrer with his piano playing. More materially, Hanfstaengl financed the expansion of the Nazi newspaper into a daily. He composed the Nazi marching songs, basing them on Harvard football anthems. He hid Hitler after the failed Beer Hall Putsch. His pretty wife took Hitler in and prevented the distraught Fuhrer from committing suicide.  Hanfstaengel was Hitler's Foreign Press Chief from 1933-1937.

Finally, Haenftaengl's handler, US Military Attache in Berlin, Col. Truman Smith deserves a mention. Although a member of the State Dept.. he helped organize Nazi support in the US. He organized Charles Lindbergh's tours of Luftwaffe facilities. Later, in Washington, he organized political and military opposition to US participation in World War Two. (Farago, pp.556-557)

Essentially, Hanfstaengl and Smith's role paralleled that of Baron de Ropp. They encouraged Hitler (and Nazis in general) to believe they had the support of the British American establishment (i.e. Illuminati) in their foolhardy crusade against Russia.


Baron William de Ropp, Hanfstaengl and Smith are further evidence that World War Two was contrived by the Illuminati to kill Gentiles, destroy the nation states of Europe and provide a rationale for Israel. By Illuminati, I am referring to the satanic secret society within Freemasonry that executes the agenda of the central banking cartel.

From the TV news to movies, from the Internet to the classroom, our perception of reality is created by the Illuminati (Cabalist) Jewish banking cartel.

History is scripted by these psychopaths to degrade and enslave mankind while increasing their own power and wealth.

You continue with the canard about Hitler as a Rothschild agent. Germany was attacked by Western economic interests (finance captialists). Why?
Kiser’s germany operated an industrial economy under the guidance of Frederick List. Industrial capitalism uses state credit and channels new money into industry. Germany then proceeded to kick england’s butt economically, and that includes taking some of the pie away from Rothschild.
Beginning in 1933, under the Reinhardt plan the “bill system” introduced millions of new Reichsmarks of purchasing power. This is why Germany never had a great depression, as there was plenty of money stimulus to get things going, and it sure as hell wasn’t Rothschild money or foreign credit that Germany used.
Churchill admitted what it was all about:
“Germany’s most unforgivable crime before the Second World War was her attempt to extricate her economic power from the world’s trading system and to create her own exchange mechanism which would deny world finance its opportunity to profit.”
Under Hitler, Germany stimulated her economy with work bills (Oeffa and Mefo) and for international trade, she used Schachts trading bank scheme.
Germany moved to autarky and used their own sovereign money, and further did international trade bypassing the “international predators” ensconced in London and Wall Street.
I don’t know why you cannot figure this out… probably because you are not a monetary historian, and thus draws wrong conclusions.

As you may remember, since my uncle had been assistant to Jesuit's General Pedro Arrupe, I'm a fan of the theory of the Jesuit's links to the Illuminati.

This implies that the second world war was again overall a religious war. In the background this war was instrumental for the Catholic Church, to fight against their two biggest Enemies: Jews and the orthodox church. This explains why Hitler, while having a contract called concordat with the catholic church, fought against Poland and tried to exterminate the Jews! Please see links on the concordat of Hitler with catholic Church and the wikipedia definition of the polish orthodox church.

Since Catholic church is in control of the secret services, Hitler was obviously a British agent, and had a kind of mentor or British handler !
Apparently Adolf Hitler was the most infamous spy in history—spent a year in England as a "student" at the Tavistock Institute. Please see link

Being personally involved in the Jesuit's circle, I can also confirm that the Jesuit's conspiracy is true!

It's funny how so many marvel at our so called illuminated ones as such genius. If they're such geniuses, why's the world so screwed up. Oh yeah, that's the genius part.

What it is, is more akin to inbred immaturity. What they're doing is easy if you do everything opposite of what everyone else expects. If you methodically lie, cheat, deceive, conspire, you can be like them. There's no magic, or genius to it. We should disabuse, dispel ourselves of any such illusion, and realize its utter childishness, destructive immaturity.

It reminds me a bit of movies like Children of the Corn.



Their deliberate destruction is a form of blackmail. They hope we will submit to their "world government" if they promise to stop.


Dan said (October 14, 2009):

We were led to believe that Chamberlain was just a naive old fool who loved peace and harmony so much he didn't see Hitler's betrayal coming.
That's another impression most never reconsider - like most things drilled into everyone's head by six years old.

But since when have British prime ministers been gullible kindly old peace-niks? There's something about Chamberlain that's more out of Mary Poppins that real British history. What they didn't tell us in school and 'Masterpiece Theatre' dramas was the fact that British favorable treatment of Hitler had everything to do with British Royal and aristocrat pro-fascism with was barely concealed until 1939. I'll put that more bluntly. We weren't told that King George VIII and most of the House of Lords were as fascist as Franco of Spain.

Chamberlain's role was negligible - he never could have backed up Hitler on Czechoslovakia without authorization of the King and aristocracy who were the real power in Britain.
Another thing we weren't told was the accurate history of Winston Churchill and his place in it. Only during the last couple of decades has the full story of Churchill been revealed, and it's not the Masterpiece Theatre version or the Royal authorized "Winston Churchill: A Life".
We know Churchill's father was a severe alcoholic that died in his 40's of sirrosis of the liver who left Winston little but a pedigree for a legacy seat in the House of Lords, and debt. Winston by his own admission was a not very bright student that bored easily of studies.

He was however an orator who could speak with seeming conviction on any subject which was to the advantage of advancement of his career, even if that meant supporting on issue or party one year and supporting the opposite the next. Over a period of times these flip flops gave Churchill the reputation of being the most blatant opportunist in Parliamentary politics till neither the Liberal or Conservative parties would take him by 1932. Also around that time Churchill fell ill with alcoholism related gastrointestinitis and the public thought he'd follow in the steps of his father and die in middle age as a sot.

And in 1929, Churchill, who had been amassing a fortune on the Wall Street speculative 'roaring 20's' stock market lost his shirt like millions of other suckers.

So by the time Hitler rose to power during 1933 Churchill was on the mat of life down for the count. The politicians were done with him, the military had never taking him seriously since he stupidly squandered tens of thousands of British army lives at Galipoli while Sea Lord of the Royal Navy.

Whomever picked Churchill up from the skids in 1933, his job for the next few years was to be the only voice with name recognition howling against Hitler in the British press. A voice crying in the wilderness.

We must consider however that Hitler might have shot himself in the foot by not merely Blitzkrieging Poland -- he made a pact with STALIN who invaded Poland with the Werhmacht, and they divied it up. Hardly did Hitler's 'Bulwark against Communism' image any good.

Great stuff Henry. I am always amazed by how sophisticated this cabal of mischief makers and murderers are. Imagine having the foresight to put together a package like Hitler and the Third Reich 80 years ago and to have realized such an incredible payoff for their efforts. They got the state of Israel, the ability crush dissent with one label (that being antisemitism—which is a meaningless term), massive amounts of wealth and the endless re-use for the tired old story line that these rapscallions are really the victims of everyone else’s ignorance (as you have rightly pointed out in many of your previous articles). If anything they should be proud and feel empowered by this kind of success. Perhaps this is why planning something like 9-11 wouldn’t have seen like much of stretch.

In Canada, the US and many European countries (excluding Sweden—which is quickly becoming a villain in the media for merely factually reporting that Israel happen to find a very profitable use for the extra body parts laying around after their last killing spree) we have people like our ex-justice minister working feverishly on new laws to criminalize any honest discussion about Israel or the kinds of things you write about. Let’s be clear however, I am not lumping everyone into this package. There are people in Israel of every religion who have worked much harder than I have every worked for human rights and peace.

This issue has a race like quality to it: will people develop the discernment fast enough to recognize a load of double-bubble when they hear it or will this group of weasels be able to re-write the laws in enough places fast enough to prevent the squeaks of truth from ever surfacing again?

I know many very well trained psychiatrists and none of them can even imagine how sophisticated the science of mind control is. Cathy O’Brien has really done some good work making some of these techniques public (as did Stanley Kubrick). But, when I look at the history of the world (thanks by the way), including this stuff about Hitler, it appears that this kind of knowledge is really ancient. The Romans knew this stuff, as did Plato (Joseph Schumpeter wrote about it over 100 years ago, but never actually put it all together), as did the Egyptians and it appears that every successful ruler since has had access to or the support of the people(?) who know how things actually go down. That is a conspiracy of staggering proportions.

We seem to be someone’s property and most everyone in modern history appears to have been someone’s property irrespective of representation made in most schools and universities that the fraudulent democracy we live and have strived for since the Athenians has some legitimacy. Further, the people that think they own us have never had the slightest qualm about committing the most vicious and inhumane acts imaginable. Now, they appear to be hell bent on destroying everything.

Kevin Barrett once wrote a very good article explaining how sociopaths are often highly successful people. He discovered this when he was researching the silly story the media was using to cover the tracks of the actual 9-11 planners. The article made sense. But, even at the time I was reading it I didn’t see the connections throughout history. It takes time. I know that now. Therefore, anyone watching the race to save our race and planet would give the people with a modicum of loyalty to mankind and life in general poor odds because the people(?) who have the other agenda have been working at it for at least 5,000 years and are clearly insane.
