  • Description

    Full title reads: "The Spirit Of The People"

    MS an elderly lady Mrs Barker climbing out of her Anderson shelter after air raid in which her house was damaged.

    MS & CU of Mrs Barker being interviewed, she talks about the damage to her house and states that she must stay there to look after her family and the chickens and the cat, she then says that she will stay in her home regardless of Hitler and Goering - excellent interview with a typical cockney woman who is determined not to be forced from her home by the Blitz bombing raid.

    N.B. Sadly this item shows some signs of damage.

    Multi-billionaire Wall Street bankers the Rockefellers sold $30 million worth of aviation fuel additive via their Standard Oil operation, to the Nazi regime in 1939. Without this additive the Blitzes could not have happened. Evidence buried in Congressional records. Anthony Sutton talked about how Wall Street and the City of London and the Bush family (Prescott Bush - George Dubya's grandpa) bankrolled the Nazi military industrial complex from the 1930s onwards. Google Anthony Sutton and Wall Street/Nazis. He was suppressed then and this info is suppressed now. Wall Street and City of London also funnelled money into Nazi Germany via the Bank for International Settlements set up in Switzerland in 1932 by Bank of ENgland governor and cousin of Queen Elizabeth Windsor (Saxe Coburg Gotha) and Nazi finance minister Hjalmar Schacht. Webster Tarpley on tarpley.net discusses these issues and how Prescott Bush was arrested in 1942 but let off the hook by CIA buddies the Dulles brothers.
