Has Trump learned that US Vehicle. manufacturing was supplying military vehicles to our enemies?
There’s a lot of Q chatter today about Ford Automobile manufacturing and the fact that Henry Ford and Hitler were good buddies. Ford gave Hitler all the military vehicles he needed and Hitler gave Henry the highest civilian Medal of Honor.
Although we can find no solid evidence that vehicles built in the United States are ending up in the hands of ISIS or any other boycotted country, its been established that American manufactured weapons have indeed ended up in the hands of our boycotted enemies.
It seems the ISIS preferred manufacturer of trucks is Toyota.
“The Toyota Hilux is everywhere,” Andrew Exum, a former US Army Ranger who is now the US deputy assistant secretary of defense for Middle East policy, told Newsweek. “It’s the vehicular equivalent of the AK-47. It’s ubiquitous to insurgent warfare. And actually, recently, also counterinsurgent warfare. It kicks the hell out of the Humvee.”
“Despite its popularity among rebel groups, Toyota has a “strict policy to not sell vehicles to potential purchasers who may use or modify them for paramilitary or terrorist activities,” as well as procedures in place “to protect supply chain integrity,” Ed Lewis, Toyota’s Washington-based director of public policy and communications, told ABC News.”
While Toyota’s own figures show a tripling of sales of the Hilux in Iraq during 2013, US authorities are also investigating other sources from which the cars could have originated, as part of a broader effort to “prevent Western-made goods from ending up in the hands of the terror group.”
TEHRAN, Apr. 01 (MNA) – According to the latest statistics released by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), car industry is still experiencing plus 18% growth in Iran.
Before the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran was a flourishing marketplace for U.S.-manufactured cars and trucks, but a combination of U.S. sanctions barring most trade and Iran’s own restrictions have blocked sales.
The Aras free zone established eight years ago (2006 GW Bush) in the north-west of the country began allowing car imports last year, putting it in prime position as a key conduit for trade if the diplomatic thaw between Iran and the West continues.
Aras Free Zone is an environment ready for the bilateral and multilateral economic cooperation between Iran and Russia and the countries of the South Caucasus. Aras Free Zone with an area of 51,000 hectares of land, relying on its fully prepared investment infrastructure (facilities including water, electricity, gas, and the development of connecting roads), as one of the Turkish investors said while visiting this Zone, is like a prepared cake that any country is willing to win a significant share of it.
According to the “Russian aviation website”, the Russian helicopter company announced that light non-military helicopters would be assembled in Iran.
It was Henry Ford who in the 1930s built the Soviet Union’s first modern automobile plant (located at Gorki) and which in the 50s and 60s produced the trucks used by the North Vietnamese to carry weapons and munitions for use against Americans.2 At about the same time, Henry Ford was also the most famous of Hitler’s foreign backers, and he was rewarded in the 1930s for this long‐lasting support with the highest Nazi decoration for foreigners.
Henry Ford: Hitler’s First Foreign Backer.
On December 20, 1922 the New York Times reported that automobile manufacturer Henry Ford was financing Adolph Hitler’s nationalist and anti‐Semitic movements in Munich. Simultaneously, the Berlin newspaper Berliner Tageblatt appealed to the American Ambassador in Berlin to investigate and halt Henry Ford’s intervention into German domestic affairs. It was reported that Hitler’s foreign backers had furnished a “spacious headquarters” with a “host of highly paid lieutenants and officials.” Henry Ford’s portrait was prominently displayed on the walls of Hitler’s personal office:
The wall behind his desk in Hitler’s private office is decorated with a large picture of Henry Ford. In the antechamber there is a large table covered with books, nearly all of which are a translation of a book written and published by Henry Ford.
The same New York Times report commented that the previous Sunday Hitler had reviewed,
The so‐called Storming Battalion.., 1,000 young men in brand new uniforms and armed with revolvers and blackjacks, while Hitler and his henchmen drove around in two powerful brand‐new autos.
The Times made a clear distinction between the German monarchist parties and Hitler’s anti‐Semitic fascist party. Henry Ford, it was noted, ignored the Hohenzollern monarchists and put his money into the Hitlerite revolutionary movement.
These Ford funds were used by Hitler to foment the Bavarian rebellion. The rebellion failed, and Hitler was captured and subsequently brought to trial. In February 1923 at the trial, vice president Auer of the Bavarian Diet testified:
The Bavarian Diet has long had the information that the Hitler movement was partly financed by an American anti‐Semitic chief, who is Henry Ford. Mr. Ford’s interest in the Bavarian anti‐Semitic movement began a year ago when one of Mr. Ford’s agents, seeking to sell tractors, came in contact with Diedrich Eichart, the notorious Pan‐German. Shortly after, Herr Eichart asked Mr. Ford’s agent for financial aid. The agent returned to America and immediately Mr. Ford’s money began coming to Munich.
Herr Hitler openly boasts of Mr. Ford’s support and praises Mr. Ford as a great individualist and a great anti‐Semite. A photograph of Mr. Ford hangs in Herr Hitler’s quarters, which is the center of monarchist movement.6
